      Right on all fronts. I get that Golf R prospects can be a picky bunch, and might not want to buy a car with a bunch of miles on it--but as nice as the R is, it's not exactly a GT3 RS or something.

      For those in the DC area, is there a good independent shop you all are using? Particularly one with Haldex experience?

      Would prefer something in Northern VA, but Md is ok too.

      Guess I'll be keeping my MK VI

      I've got a '12 R with about 20k miles on it. Keeping a car three years isn't very common for me, so I've been thinking of upgrading to a (manual) '16.

      But, since the dealers I've visited...

      Interesting. I'm sorry you're having all that trouble. I can't really figure out what's different between your install and mine from the pics; it looks like you've done basically the same thing I...

      Haven't tried it, but since using two boosters and a rear-facing infant seat in our E61 5 series was just *barely* possible, I am going to guess it's difficult or impossible to do in the Golf.

      One more vote for the Graco as an infant seat. When our second was born, I considered going with a Maxi-Cosi but discovered that the Maxi-Cosi infant seat available in the US actually takes up more...

      Golf R & Little Ones

      Our Britax Roundabout fit rear-facing behind the driver seat without an issue--I am 6' but sit relatively close to the wheel.

      Edit--our kids are far enough apart that we never used a double...

      Audi Shift Knob and Boot Install

      There is no way to get the knob off without removing the boot. You need to pull the boot up to access the clamp that holds the knob onto the shift lever.

      As shown in my pics above, the knob is...

      Have you seen an instrumented test of the two cars? I haven't yet, but am curious to see how the Focus stacks up. On paper, anyway, you'd expect the performance numbers to be very similar.

      I got to drive a Focus ST at their stadium parking lot "Driving Academy" thing. It was a short drive (actually, two short drives) in a quasi-autocross environment, so I am looking forward to a...

      There's a procedure in the manual for reinitializing a fob--give that a shot.

      Looks like I'm going to miss the track event next weekend. Shame. I was holding out hope the car would be back together by then, but that's not going to happen. :banghead:

      Close encounter at less than 5 mph with a dump truck on the 14th St. Bridge. Sigh.

      I'm registered. Not sure I'll actually be able to go, and I'm not sure that the R is going to be that much fun on the track, but $50 is hard to pass up.
