The Road to Recovery
About a year ago, I landed a project in the Bay Area. I found that I preferred driving instead of flying due to the convenience -- no airport security, freedom to drive around after work hours, could bring along things like razors and toothpaste that are banned from my carry-ons. Extra pairs of shoes, several laptops and equipment.. To top it off, I get reimbursed for mileage at the gov't rate: $.55/mile.
What a great opportunity to use the TT! It's small enough to be convenient in the Bay Area, but big enough to be comfortable on the long highway jaunt. Fun in the mountain passes, with twisty roads and steep inclines. Yay!
Up to this point, the only modification on the car is a set of Zimmerman cross-drilled rotors and Mintex pads.
Since the tires were rotting off, the first thing I did was take it to the shop to have new tires put on, and get the brakes and struts checked out.
