      I *think* it's the same as the A8 but others smarter than me will know better.

      In winter with 235/75/17 studded tires I get around 18.5 on the freeway. Our speed limit is 75mph which really kills...

      Mine is back to shifting very poorly when cold and slightly poorly when warm. Installed the rebuilt valve body this January with Amsoil fluid. It shifted fine at first and has gotten worse through...

      Carrying around a baby, baby gear, a DSLR, flash and selection of lenses? For us, a DSLR was too much to pack everywhere we went. So many "baby picture moments" are short notice - you need to have...

      I do everything I can to it myself. I paid to have the timing belt/water pump/thermostat done but have done everything else to it. Changed the stepper motor, transmission valve body, headlight bulbs,...

      Not sure as I have an 04 without that option. The Bentley says it uses a 30A fuse for the supply. My standalone inverter allegedly supplies 200 watts and uses around 10 amps. I'd be willing to bet...

      I've had to do a bit of work to mine. Late model 04. On average I spend about $200US/month on repairs and maintenance. Drivetrain mostly - if you get one change the fluids in the diffs and trans...

      I've done both just to see what happens. Never because I got stuck though. Sand, gravel, rocks, boulders, snow, mud, ice - it's just always worked better with ESP off and either range - high or low....

      What about an iphone tripod mount connected to a GoPro windshield suction cup mount? Never tried that but it takes rock solid GoPro shots so at least it could be a start. Good luck!

      Ooops! My bad on the timing chains. Sorry about that! I still recommend changing the lubes/fluids though. Oils wear and age just like the rest of the car. Good luck!

      I would recommend the warranty. Right away you'll need to change timing belt, water pump, etc. Front, rear and center diff oil needs changing as well as the transmission fluid. That info might help...

      I love our 50mm but for a walk-around car show where you're not getting paid I'd probably go w/ the 18-55 to give more flexibility in framing. :) Good luck in whatever you choose!

      It's called "depth of field" and is controlled by the aperture setting of the lens used. Understanding Exposure is a great book to get you started. http://www.exposureguide.com/focusing-basics.htm...
