Hey all, so a curious thing happened this morning, the upshift paddle is completely static now???? I've done 1 or two mods to this car, but I've never altered any of the mechanical aspects of the DSG or the steering wheel paddles. Audi called on Friday and the new transmission is finally here. I'll let everyone know what ends up happening. The thing that sucks is that I had the HPA Stage3 flash on my TCU and now that I have a new tranny coming I've lost that to my knowledge.
I'll call them today and see what if anything they can do for me. It may mean that the newest webisode will just need to be finalized as is w/o the extra driving shots I was hoping for.
Hell to the yeah! New transmission is in, and I have to say the 2012 tranny feels way more tight than the 2009 tranny felt the whole time I owned it. Im really stoked that its all working properly now. Next situation that needs attention is that the turbo is leaking oil. So I am working with Chris at APR and need to yank it out and send it to Alabam'r. Arin if you're listening you guys want to swap me pout for a GT30 and see how much more juice we can put to this thing? Holla atcha boy!
If any of you are interested, I finally started my build thread for the new .:R It's going to be an official VW Vortex series of 6 installments like TTS/SF. I hope to see some of you over there too.
Here is the linkage to the thread:

You be the man. Good Luck.
My son (& best buddy) just bought today a Rising Blue 2-dr R w/ Navi. (23 YO) lacks money but has the mod bug fo sure.
Greatly look forward to living and learning from your experiences.

Ok all as it turns out I am parting out the TTS, but for now i am doing it privately instead of a classified ad. So if anyone is interested in going Stage3 hit me up via PM to coordinate pricing etc...
BTW, is anyone interested in trading their OEM TTS wheel and tire set up for the set of VMR wheels off my car?
Straight across trade of your OEM wheel/tire set up (as long as there is some tread left on the tires and no curb rash) for my VMR (wheels only) boxed and ready to ship.
