      Ah, got it. I see all 4 doors have the keyless dimple. With kids in the back it'd be ideal to be able to unlock/lock from the rear doors. Has anyone been able to enable this?

      what was under the sheet?

      Months ago, when Audi was revealing the A3 lineup, there was a mystery vehicle under a sheet that they hadn't revealed. Did we ever find out what it was?

      Dyno time. I was told by a shop that torque numbers may not be available due to the electrical signal not being easy to "tap". Anyone know if this is true?

      Apparently. Didn't seem to be making the sound at any point today. *shrug*, I'll chalk it up as nothing, I guess. Carry on.

      So do you end up cutting the "y" also or does it come off with the 3 tab supports that are cut? I'm sure it'll make sense when I see it.

      No vibrations thru the pedals but sometimes I feel like the suspension is unloading oddly when going slow over speed bumps (thumps). Anyone else getting this or is it the nature of the suspension?
