    1. 8V S3 - smallest wheel that'll clear brakes?

      I'm looking for an oem 17" rim (vw or audi) that'll clear the S3 brakes. Does such a thing exist? Anyone have examples of 17" oem rims that are confirmed to not fit?

      I figured it wouldn't have write-back capability, but I don't see why it couldn't. It's smart to monetize this kind of a la cart programming change (though unfortunate for us due to cost).

      How does this thing "lock" to the vehicle, is it preprogrammed with your car's ECU #?

      aftermarket panel filters

      A "dry" aftermarket panel filter claims a 50% increase in airflow over a paper filter. Think there's any noticeable improvement on these cars?

      This stuff is new to me. When purchasing the data on redpocket, what does one use for the required "Red Pocket Mobile Number" field? I would have thought you just plug in the sim card's ID.

      You're saying there's no discernible difference in ride quality? Is that in both dynamic and comfort? How well does the magride do with bounce and controlling the springs?
