      I had problems with the adjustable springs and stock mounts. I imagine the camber plates make the impact even worse but they don't have any effect on the lack of suspension travel with the short...

      I couldn't get the crashing to stop regardless of height so I went back to fixed height springs in the front, so much better now. It was pretty obvious looking at the coils that they were bottoming...

      20" wheels were a factory option in Europe so lots of folks over there have them. They were an RS4-style wheel and forged, turned out the 20" wheels were the lightest available.

      Oh well since 38000 other people bought one I guess I'll get one too

      Kind of interesting though that the other pics and video show it with a mk1 style (!!) shift boot instead of the open gate.

      Best thing you can do for the car is get a better set of tires and get even just a little more aggressive alignment. Factory specs are fine for the rear but you want to max out the front camber....

      I just swapped from MSS adjustables to fixed fronts this weekend, took about an hour per side for the front struts. Rear springs are much easier and take about an hour total. You can use a spring...

      MSS kits will lower the car slightly and actually in my experience with the sport kit with fixed height front springs I find the ride better than stock.

      Coilovers would replace the stock dampers entirely. You'd need the magride delete kit from KW suspensions to deal with the fault code.

      It's not any heavier as dust than it was in the pad

      It'd be nice if I could find someone else who installed the intercooler themselves so I could compare notes. All I've seen are people who left it to shops and who knows what they end up doing to make...

      Curious if you took any pics during the install that I might be able to compare with. The contact with the grill and air dam wasn't expected and neither was the lack of clearance behind the...

      I posted pics and dimensions over on quattroworld but I wasn't very happy with the fitment or my interactions with AWE staff. I ended up with a Wagner instead and I've had no issues with it so far.

      I can't believe how much they are dragging out this launch. MY2017 for the RS seems unlikely, that would be calendar year 2016. RS variants don't make it to the US until 1-2yrs after Euro...

      Neuspeed RSe14 definitely clear the RS brakes without spacers. I imagine the new ones will too, they look awesome!

      I believe the balance of the factory warranty is transferable, it's attached to the VIN. It looks like there is an application to transfer CPO if the car was originally certified:...

      Stock. I went thru a couple different types of mounts on my mk1 (034, BFI), won't make that same mistake again. Some of them are really nicely engineered but the extra NVH gets old pretty quickly.
