      Just trying to figure out why my front suspension is making noise when I turn. I think it's time to change the strut mounts/bushings/bearings.

      Getting some things together to make the daily more pleasant to drive. Just picked up a 2.25 exhaust instead of a 2.5, swapping to serpentine for less v belt noise.

      Piecing together stuff for my project car. Picked up a matching hood and fender last night.

      I have fond memories of when the CC was first started, and when it was in it's prime. This will most likely get locked unfortunately, but in case it doesnt, hi to all the CC originals

      Cleaned the S4 like a madman on Sunday. It was filthy. I think I vacuumed enough change out from under the seats to pay it off. :lurk:

      Getting my new catback installed this weekend and hope to have time to pull the downpipes to remove the pre-cats while I'm at it.

      Now I need suspension and to get my wheels off to Rotiform to be re-drilled and painted.
