      If your gas cap light comes on even if you think you tightened the cap, try pulling on the cap as you tighten it. Worked for me.
      Help us with suspension specs!

      I'm still on the fence about getting a RCD...I mean I'd love one, but it's hard for me to justify the price...but they look sooo nice! Does it make the stock speakers sound any better?

      Yes...it does. In my GLI, I went from the Premium 7 to the RCD and it sounded much better.

      Let us know how you like the yellow stuffs. I just got 2 sets of red stuff for free going on after I get back from New Orleans.

      Also what I did is, I haven't driven it since Friday morning almost 3 days.

      After returning from holidays, opened garage today, removed the tricke charge monitor, started it and heard this:


      And I instantly felt much better after 2 weeks+ in the family truckster. Looking for an excuse to drive now!

      Nice! I always feel like that when I get back from my England trips!

      If you're looking for an excuse to drive, you can drive up to me and I'll do a photoshoot of the 2 Rs...

      Finally set to "Winter Attack Mode". I didn't get any good pics yet but these are from my cell with some cousins as I was waiting for a friend:

      Took a trip up to Helen/Hiawassee Monday morning in the 20th. Broke 100K on the 20th. The road up to Brasstown Bald (highest point in GA) was great...it'd be a good day trip for an R32 meet at SoWo. It's gorgeous up there this time of year, but man is Helen a ghost town! This was all in anticipation of the R32 being ready for pickup at Wagenwerks, which was on the way back on GA-400. A nice preview of the events to come in April and May.

      Our route: http://g.co/maps/umf6a

      So I'm glad to be back in the saddle. Been a long month of waiting. New bumper and grill. Also installed the Seat Cupra lip that'd been sitting in my garage for months. We got our first dusting of snow in Atlanta this week, might need to put the Omanyts back on...

      View from the Brasstown overlook:

      It is a metallic noise at idle. At highway speeds it is a whine.
