Without negotiating they came with a pretty decent deal...

      Will let you know today, but if I had a choice I would get it in the color you got... Opera red rocks....

      We drove 4 hours to Chattanooga, TN to pick it up. It was the Premium SEL. On the way home, we drove over 300 miles at 85 to 95 miles per hour. When I arrived, the first thing I did was check my fuel efficiency.... 41.5 MPG @ 90 mph.... not bad at all!!!

      Awesome find on the rain-sensing wiper activation!

      Another request/mod would be how to disable the auto-shutoff when entering the car after using remote-start. Can that be done with the VAG-COM?

      Nice car Andy! I'm going to miss the yellow one though.

      NEXT MOD: LOWER IT!

      MREURO..loving the build... nice job on the R32 brakes. What are you planning to do to lower the vehicle?

      NICE! Sounds a lot like my old 04 R32 with the flapper mod...Might be a bit too loud for everyday for me though....

      Let us know what you think over a few days or so!
