      Thanks man. I love the quality of them. Can't say anything about the ride or drop yet, unfortunately.

      Nothing much to report, but I figure every little update is worthy of being documented...Kept the frame and false floor at Nik's place. Michel sprayed it and sent me a cell pic

      After gathering all the other knick-knacks and doo-dads over the weekend (wire, distribution block, missing fittings, lumber, etc.), there was one we weren't able to avail of, which was a PTC 3/8" fitting. It has been ordered and work will be done when everything else comes in.

      The rears are said to be arriving to ORT this week...which means I am supposed to have them sometime NEXT week.

      Still pushin forward with this build, of course. The clock's winding down and Wuste's almost here. Got a few things done though.

      Layout:




      Odered an OSIR O-Pod Dual Gauge Mount for the 2 Viair dual-needle gauges:




      I suppose it'll sit like this?:


      Also tore out some of the interior panels under which we'll be running the power line. Don't have pics of that mess though. lol

      Rears are said to be here by Monday. Tuesday, we try to wrap up the management and whatever connections need to be made, as well as last minute layout tweaks.

      Yeah, that's what I last read in your thread. Wish I had all the know to be hookin sh** up all on my own. Haha..We're all runnin really tight schedules right now, so it's really hard to come by free days when we can all get together to work on it. And as it is, there are only 24hrs in a day. haha

      And oh damn, pics are up?! I gotta check that out!!

      Thanks a lot man. Yeah, I feel your pain. I mean...I just barely got mine in this past weekend. I was worried that they might not have been here in time for Wuste (1st wk of June). I know it f**ked some people up for SoWo, and even for Wuste. Hopefully he gets back to you. I called and called and called. Last I spoke with him, he was in Austria.

      BTW, your S4 looks awesome. I can haz your 18" RSs? Please? lol

      If I ever hit the lottery, I'll send more than enough money your way for them. :p

      Yeah, I was actually reading your thread right before I responded to you in here. That was a funny little pic you got up. It's nice that you can poke fun about it...but I understand how frustrating it can be just waiting in the dark, not knowing what's going on and where your sh** is. It'll come through. When, I can't say. Many times, it's not a matter of if they're going to come in (because they better damn well be!), it's when...and unfortunately, the sad reality is that by the time people get them, they're either really pressed for time, or even run past their deadline(s). It was simple enough to get a tracking number from Andrew. Tricky part is getting a hold of him. lol. Just try to get through to him to get a tracking number. That way, you at least know where your stuff is and when it's scheduled to be delivered.

      haha yeah i just thought the whole point of a "group buy" is so that people can get the merchandise for a good price and ahead of everyone else, since everything is shipped at one time. bugs me how the order has mysteriously split up.. we'll see! hope i get them soon.. ok i dont wanna jack your thread anymore
      cheers! carry on with the Audi madness

      Lmao. Not-so-group-buy. Damn, that sh** took a long ass time, but to be honest, I DGAF about all that now. Haha..I don't care about any BS or drama/whatever during the wait. I have them now, and the wait is behind me. Truly a sad story for those who haven't gotten their sh** yet, and those who are STILL waiting from the first group buy. There's no excuse for that.

      Actually, you're right! There isn't an excuse, but there is an explanation. It's long and if you want to hear it, I'll gladly tell you! As for ARI's stuff, I'm in Europe and I turn on my phone every couple of days because the roaming charges are extremely high. The best form of contact is email!

      As for your rear bags, please keep in mind that you're supposed to use the plastic washer.

      Cheers!

      Yeah..exactly. That's why I'm saying in my case, I don't really care. I never really had much of a problem. Sadly, others feel they do, so I feel for them. I also said everything was said and done for me. I paid for my goods, received them in the condition I expected. It's done. It's over. And I do thank you for your business.

      And the rear bags both have the washers still on them. If you look at the pic, one of the bags is upside down

      Car is DONE. lol. I know..I've missed out on a lot of updates, but I've been really lazy about tracking all the progress on here. No worries though...I've got some pictures of the process, and will definitely post them up along with play-by-play commentary. haha.

      Here's one to hold you over for now though...
