      Even at the same weight, smaller wheels will have less inertia. They may not help unsprung weight, but would help with acceleration and braking. I would love to run 17" wheels, but just don't have...

      long term storage

      Hey Tyrol, for the understeer, why not reduce the front sway, rather than increase the spring rate in the rear? My understanding is that the front sway increases roll stiffness at the front, and...

      neat, any one know if the Audi rear trailing arm covers (which are for FWD cars) can be made to fit the AWD trailing arms?

      I've found the MFA average consumption to be pretty close to actual, believe it or not. I don't understand why people hate it so much.

      Mine started acting up, would work only on the passenger side, but not the driver's side. New battery also fixed it for me. Key fob buttons still worked fine with the old battery.

      I took the airbag sticker off my passenger side mirror - I can still see its outline. Someday, when I have money burning a hole in my pocket, I'll pick a set of these up. I don't think the plastic...

      The biggest problem with a 2dr is getting in/out in parking lots - the longer doors can't open as wide, so that can make it hard. The way the newer seats flip forward makes access a lot easier. I'd...

      What to get for my bday?

      It's a toss up currently between:
      - DA polisher setup
      - RossTech cable
