      Great Success

      What's the update on the Haldex switch and the UM combo?

      Like i said before, the tune didnt go as planned. We could not for the life of us get it to work. We try everything! 2 computers, driver, reinstalls.....

      I didnt get to play with it much because I didnt leave there until 9 and it was raining like a mofo. But here are my initial thoughts
      The DSG flash is nice, it gives you heads up display of what gear your in (D & S mode). I op-ed for no auto up shift in Manual mode and 5400 LC. I noticed while in town the car doesn't shift into 6 under 25-30 as before it would. Also seems to down shift a bit faster when you get on it while in D.

      Cant wait for the ECU tune

      UM ecu tune loaded!

      Andy got my fuel filter changed it shot a load of gas like Ron Jeremy haha

      Just bought some adams slotted and drilled rotors, paid $300 for new front and rear rotors and new pads. Not going to use the pads, probably sell them and possibly the rotors also. Depending on what I can get for them they are $500 new for front and rear. I am thinking about 2 piece racebrake light weight rotors, but there kind of pricey

      I decided to go with haldex switch for now. I feel like it will benefit me more than the intake.
