      Also, is there any online guide to installing a boost gauge in your AC vent?

      Well I dont believe it is possible simply because it weighs too much. The struts for the hatch are barely strong enough as is...

      I know.. at year 11 I replaced my hatch struts already, but I'm sure you could make it light somehow. I love to dream..... one day my car is gonna travel back in time, too

      Unless your the kid ^^^ craps golden eggs, that probably won't be enough.

      The only problem with the current design is that it is integrated into the hatch, so that means shipping a hatch from the UK to the US. I don't believe he sells a separate spoiler mechanism that you can have welded into your hatch after the corresponding section is cut off. Any way, the shipping alone is probably $2-4K, plus a few thousand for the integrated hatch, so total is $$$$.

      But, the guy that designed and built it, is a regular on the UK TT forum. www.ttforum.co.uk

      His handle is: VSPURS.

      Register there and then you can send him a PM and get much more info.

      Damn.. girl didn't get pregnant last night.. we're gonna try again. Hopefully we get twins to bring double the profit


      That really is too much. I wish it was cheaper. I've had the vision for a while, but my idea was different. I was thinking the spoiler would be hinged on the side closer to the window and the pistons near the Audi emblem would raise the back part of the spoiler. A folded rubber boot would keep everything water-proof and dirt resistant. You'd only need a couple of inches in elevation on the rear section of the spoiler for the needed downforce. I would have also had to employ someone to code the ECU to raise the spoiler at 60mph to the preset height.

      Polished my summer wheel lips today, and i was putting on my stock wheels on and my front drivers lug bolt snapped....anyways...I know I need to get that taken care of but...you think it'll be safe to daily drive for a while without 1 lug bolt for a month or so?
      What can i do? It possible to remove the bolt? The head snapped, so i can grab it with vise grips
      Or will i need a new wheel hub?

      Just twist it out with vice grips. It shouldn't be hard to get out unless you used an impact wrench to tighten it. If that fails get a bolt extractor set and try that

      PB blaster to loosen the bolt up. Cut a notch in it and get a flat head in there and start spinning.

      You can't get to the bolt even with the wheel off?

      That's why they are vice grips. Clamp onto it tight.

      This ^^^. Some people call them 'Easy Outs'.

      Just be sure not to drill a hole that's too big, as then the extractor will expand the bolt threads just as you are trying to back it out. Also hit it with something like PB Blaster first.

      I bought my amulet red '01 with obvious problem areas in the clear coat, coming off in spots near the front of the hood, front of the roof and behind (one!) rear fender flare. Are TTs known for having clear coat issues, or did the PO have a crappy paint job at some time?

      TTs are not known for paint issues other than the roof rail strips, which show corrosion due to poor factory paint prep.

      Sounds very much like crappy re-spray.

      You got to the point where you had everything but the rotor/caliper off, but stopped to take a pic instead of taking those two things off and removing the snapped lug? It could be done in a night, just get a replacement and go for it

      The picture is not mine, i just googled
      Took the caliper off and the brake rotor. I tried turning it, i use a screw and a hammer to turn it. made 2 full turs, and thats where i stopped since it was getting dark and it seemed that the bolt was stuck in there.. Ill try to use a a metal cutter with a disk and make a slice in there so maybe i could just use my screw driver. hmm IDK

      Any shops that could remove the bolt for me? Called tire shops nothin, called a few breake shops told me to buy a new hub..

      Sorry, misunderstood Can you not get to the lugbolts from behind? Should be a Torx head bolt, or it might be pressed in, can't remember..if it is pressed in, us a C-clamp to press it out shadetree style

      Can i unscrew that bolt that is right in the middle of the brake rotor? I mean by saying "can" will there be any fluids or oil coming out? Will i need to replace any kind of washers? or is it just unscrew and then just screw it back in? because i believe the hub is being holded with that screw

      Yeah it's fine. There's just grease behind it.
