      All sorts of fun wheels on here lately!

      Here is a potato quality shot complete with cone scuff in the front from a recent auto-x. I guess you are supposed to go around them...:rolleyes:

      Nice, someone did a stud conversion to get rid of the lug bolts. I would take the opportunity to clean the threads with a wire brush and put a light coat of 3in1 oil (for light corrosion protection)...

      The video link embed code is a bit out of date, I think. Same with the picture embed for new gif formats.

      Is it an Audi dealer? If so, they should be able to pull up the history if services were done at another Audi dealer in the country. If not, you should be able to find out which dealer sold it and...

      They should be able to tell you if and when it got the DSG and Haldex services. It should have had two of each at this point. If not, they should do them. There may be a brake system flush in there...

      I've been curious about the Eibach setups. The entry level Pro-Street-S is around $1500. P/N 8598.711 I think that you can put different 2.5" linear springs on them (which Eibach sells) to suit the...

      Probably not an absolute requirement. The stiff sidewalls are a more performance oriented ride.

      Well, you can find indie VW mechanics everywhere. VW dealer parts are generally a bit cheaper than Audi dealer parts for identical PNs. Online they are closer.

      The 3.2 is fun to drive, very smooth power delivery, but not the best for gas mileage (mid 20s on the highway). I like the DSG transmission.
