      I also just placed an order on H&R Coilovers and Audi Magnetic Ride Delete modules.
      Where'd you source the mag-ride delete modules? Are those the ones from KW? Also curious why you're replacing the mag-ride... planning on a lot of track time?

      Congrats, dogdrive & redz!

      Yes, matching mirrors is awesome. If I had ordered mine I would have gone with the stock mirrors and considered painting them. You should let the world know you can order them like that, even if it pisses off AoA.

      Redz, that color is awesomeleriffic! I want to lick it and eat it. It's worth way more than 2% the total price, if you look at it that way. BTW, how many RS's did that dealer get allocated?

      Enjoy your cars. It only gets better from here on out.

      dogdrive, I'm also interested if you feel a difference with the torque arm insert. Cheap and easy mod if it really makes a difference.

      And what did the torque arm insert do you for you? Thanks.
      The torque arm insert limits the movement of the motor under load. It's a similar concept to upgrading your dogbone mount on the MKI TT or earlier VW models (MKIV)

      My reason is simply because I like my cars slammed.
      Originally I was going to get KW Clubsport but decided not to get it after finding out that it only drops the car 1.4" WEAK!
      Magnetic ride delete modules are from KW.

      Here is a picture of my slammed benz. Rides like shjt but I don't really care

      Noticed the difference immediately esp during hard acceleration.
      I think most people here will appreciate that little mod.

      As to you question about allocations - My dealer got 3 at that location - 2 sold already: mine and a Black w/black-red wheel combo, 3rd ordered as Daytona but still possible to to be changed and, as of this morning, not yet spoken for, although not sure if that one is slated to be a '12 or '13. I think their other location had at least one additional allocation because I'm parked around the corner from a Daytona not from my location.

      I would have done color matched mirrors had that been possible at the time- but would likely have resulted in yet another 3 month delay and 9 months was already excruciating enough. Volcano Red is worth every last cent, although I'd say more than just lickable And as a redhead I look magnificent getting out of that car. I enjoy the looks I get when I pull up in that car. As they say, "Priceless!"

      Which reminds me of the following posts earlier in this thread....

Our staffer Bill was showing the car to a German gentleman who was very excited about it, though he didn't speak a lot of English. Bill ended up having the guy sit in the passenger seat while Bill sat in the driver's, started the car, and revved the hell out of it a couple of times for the guy. The German guy gets this raptured look on his face, and is struggling to express himself in English. "This car..... this is.... is so.... I feel it in my behind! Is Amazing!" Every once and a while when something cool happens, one of us will still say "I feel it in my behind!" and everyone else will crack up." "

      It's become a running joke with my male friends where one sitting in passenger seat of the car says "I feel it in my behind" and I respond "It makes my balls tingle." And a punchline every time we're drinking. Funnier still since I appear to be the only female owning a TT-RS, or at least the only one found so far.

      And that's my longwinded responds to a simple post......

      Btw, this picture was taken before the washer was installed.
      It should look like this at the end.
