      Changed my ignition coils to the red Audi coils (also used for Touaregs) and found I have an oil leak. So Tuesday will be CPO VCG day as well as spark plug replacement. They're soaked with 5w40. I'm glad I decided to do an un=necessary cosmetic upgrade or I wouldn't have noticed a major issue. Although the red coils look bad ass.

      Note to self: just get an R8 and be done with it all...

      I brought her home for the first time. Only after I hit some twisties in the Niagara escarpment though.

      I rattle canned and pinstriped my hubcaps, and completely blacked out the front grill. Took a good 6 hours to do everything, but until I get real wheels, this will have to do. I have only had this car for 3 days, and I am excited for things to come. Now on to the pictures!

      Looks very creative and a great way to match color scheme instead of doing it the cheap way and blacking everything out... Great job on the pinstriping and good luck in future plans!! Definitely adds character...

      Other than the car being nine feet tall, I agree. Those look really good.

      Thanks, guys! The pinstriping was my dads idea, and he did all the work on those. I was afraid I was gonna hate it, but they actually look really cool now. And the pics do them no justice. And for the moar low crowd, I've only had the car since the night of the 4th, give me a break Next weekend I am painting the headlight housings black, then time to save for wheels and a drop.
