      No reply to 2 emails (BoldSport). I never got a reply last year either when I originally had the problem.

      Will start looking for front sensors. Anyone know of a reputable vendor? The Aidu store...

      No one makes or sells a 4-sensor module. This means either:

      - The module works with only 4 sensors attached.
      - Everyone who buys a rear-only kit is getting screwed.


      Not that I doubt you...

      Bingo!

      When I got the unit I figured the 3rd port was for the front sensors, and it would auto configure. Silly rabbit! BTW, my module has "PA66GF15" written on it. At the base where the ports...

      Agree with the medic. Turn off stability control. Even with it completely off, it's hard to kill yourself in this car. The only reason I'd use the 1st setting (single press) is if you've got a...

      If you're thinking of Carbotech, you may want to start out with XP10 on the front. Carbotech is great for not only lack of fade, but also a very progressive feel and ease of modulation. However,...

      If you have a chance, I would take an electric sander with garnet paper to the rotors to loosen up the glaze. That will optimize the 2400 miles you put on it. Lightly ride the brakes here and there...

      That's interesting. I noticed a significant benefit from just going to better pads on the stock rotors. Care to elaborate?




      I use Carbotech's least aggresive track pad, HP8, on the rear. ...

      Also, MkVI (A3/8P/8J) platforms use ABS for tire pressure, so no TPMS valves.

      I found a number for TSW. They confirmed that the Interlagos and Nurburgring, being 'rotary forged', have a sharper inner profile where the barrel meets the spokes. The purely cast wheels (a la...

      I'm guessing that TSW, like other mfgs, uses a common cast profile for the hub. They could, theoretically, 'flow-form' the hubs to different tolerances, leading to different hub clearances. But,...

      Some answers:

      - I'd like to sell them as a set, all at once.

      - The packages weigh 35lbs each, 21"x21"x10". x4. Shipped to Anaheim, CA, 92808. This should help you calculate shipping.
