      Jeff is still making my tune but I picked up the pro.maf at waterfest
      409whp on the stock motor... Damn that would have saved me 800 bones... 410-450 is where I want to end up. So if dynod fwd that equates about 430!

      Drove it... waited for it to rain to get a free car wash

      Found out the squeaking I'm hearing in the front are the front control arm bushings. Local garage, loosened bolts, greased them, tightened back down... still squeaky Have to bring it back to have them try something else.

      Nice photos. Only thing that bugs me about this one is the lack of perfect symmetry. Otherwise
      why so serious?

      My 2012 2.5 now has 93 miles.

      I'm a little concerned with the noises this engine and trans makes. First off the 2.5 has an odd sounding 1000-1900 rpm almost air-cooled engine sound. Something I noticed today was in first gear accelerating theres a hard to describe metallic whine. Sound familiar to anybody?

      I hope its normal so I can stop worrying about. The engine is still breaking in. I've only had the car for 2 days. At idle, the valvetrain sounds a little noisy too.

      Washed it, put gas in it, took some pics.

      For whatever reason, the last 2 times I washed it it came out water spotted to hell. It's visible in the shots of the Wolfsburg tag, and I could barely see out my damn windshield...

      You have hard water as your source then. I do too. I bought a silicone blade from Autozone and it works great.

      I'll have to try that. What I don't understand is that it never happened to my A4 or the previous dozen times I washed the Jetta, just these last 2 times.

      Clay bar, polish, wax, then rewash and see if it's still there.
