      Yakima Lowrider or Railgrab?

      Haven't bought Yakima gear in quite a while, so I'm a bit out of date. I have a full Yakima setup (bikes, skis, box) that I swap between three avants -- my '01 A4, my '99 A6 and a '96 A6.

      Call an independent glass guy and ask for help. I waited to do this until after the car was loaded for a trip, I glued the button on 90 degrees off and tried to remove it. D'oh. After we got back...

      Nice. I didn't know that the RNS-E had been upgraded.

      I also thought that the old SD card reader was limited to 2 gb, not 4.

      I've got one in my '01 A4, another in my '99 A6 (yes, single DIN,...

      In the US, avant was/is only Quattro. You could buy a C5 A6 sedan with FWD, lord knows why. FWD C5 has a single exhaust outlet showing at the rear.

      What are you doing for rear brakes?

      I went with an S4 setup on the rear to keep the system balanced.

      Are you driving this car or parking it?

      Nice set of 255/40 Dunlops won't look quite as, um, silly, but they sure will be more fun going around corners.

      Seriously.

      Title this "how to make a nice car handle and ride like ****."

      Wouldn't it be easier to just let the air out of the tires?
