      easy way to check... see if the brake lights are on when the car is on but you are not pushing the brakes.

      went to the dealer... brake light recall was done already, brake lights are not on, EPC light is on, no engine codes, i have a feeling the electrical demons are back, this car has a history of electrical problems... any suggestions are appreciated, im at a lost, as it stands it will go to the dealer monday.

      Hey everyone -- first post on this thread. I'm still somewhat new to Columbia -- moved here in February 09. I just sold my G35x and picked up a 2010 JSW TDI from Wray -- it actually came from Ray Ellis in Hotlanta... Here's a bad pick:

      Anyway -- ordering some H&R Sport springs this weekend and need to find somewhere local to get them installed. I will obviously need to get aligned after so if I can get both done at the same place, that would be ideal. Any recommendations??? Also ordering new 18s for it but still undecided on those -- looking at Raderwerks and VMRs. Likely will be going with a black or gunmetal rim... Stay tuned!
      Hope to get to meet some people soon. Have a great weekend!
      Mike

      There is a great alignment shop on Two Notch, it's all they do. I don't remember the name, but I can show you where it is. I know that's bad but I suck with names.

      A&T next door to Audi. I highly recommend them. I used to send them ALL of the Porsche alignements when I worked for McDaniel's Porsche. They were the only ones who gould get a Cayenne right and that didn't have issues with non-standard setups on 911 track cars. To top it off, they are cheaper than most places in town.

      Awesome -- that's right near where I live (Forest Acres). Any idea if they can handle installing springs? Thanks for the help!

      They should be able to do it. Of course a lot of us are willing to get together and help you do it yourself. If you add up all the suspension installs club members have done, we collectively have more experience than just about any shop in town!

      just got a call from the dealer, brake light switch and the clutch switch are both bad. since the brake switch recall was done already so i have to pay for this one. looks like im gonna get out of this for about $250 not too bad for dealer prices i guess?

      If the switch that failed isn't the last revision, they may still take care of it for free. Mine got replaced twice under the recall.

      i will look into that when I pick it up, havent really heard about clutch switch problems?! anyone else had issue?

I run my own repair business, I pull 16 credit hours @tech every semester, movin into my first house soon, still dubbin like crazy, livin the college life again, and so much more.
      I still have the same number, it'll never change. I'm holding a thanksgiving dinner at my house for those of you with no family to goto. Dog's and kids are welcome

      Where are you from in Baltimore, that's where we are from?
      You can hit up AT&T for an alignment, http://www.atalign.com/. They/re on Two Notch. No real euro shops in the area but there a buch of us that can help you out.
