    Window rolled down instead of up. Huh?

    This morning I had all 4 windows halfway down. I pulled all 4 window switches to auto-roll up. 3 went up, but my driver side went down? I hit the switch again and it went up fine. Anyone else experienced this before.

    Android Auto vs BT(Spotify sound quality)

    So, I never really listened to audio over BT until today. Much to my surprise, the sound quality of Spotify over BT blows away the SQ of Android Auto. The bass is twice as loud, so much clearer highs and mids. Now that I've compared the two back to back, I'll never be able to listen to AA again...

    EQT E-tune journey.....

    I thought I'd start a thread to share my EQT e-tune journey. I have a 2019 with 2,000 miles on odo. IE downpipe, twintercooler, RS7 plugs and modified stock airbox. 6/6/19: Recieved Cobb and e-tune. Installed and tested Cobb OTS. Everything ran fine. I found out I'm apparently the first 2019...

    Paint correction on Urano Grey....any advice?

    Hey guys, I plan to do a paint correction and ceramic coating in the near future. This color is beautiful, but shows every imperfection. My car came from the dealer with some pre-installed stains and swirls in the clear coat. Looks like a couple of bird dropping stains and some hard water...

    First major mod done... IE downpipe

    What a bitch. This was not a fun install to do alone. Regardless, it's finished and sounds great. New turbo gasket and no leaks. I did the airbox mods while I was at it. Up next, IC and turbo inlet. Then finally the tune. Can't wait!

    Hot and humid, stop and go.....Intercooler or Twintercooler

    I'm in Houston. 8 month out of the year it's over 90 degrees, high high humidity. Lots of stop and go. I have a magic intercooler and a twintercooler sitting in my garage and I'm torn which one to install. Any advise for my climate? Which type of intercooler would be best for me? I'm more...

    If they missed the shipping pucks, then what else?

    The shipping pucks were left in my struts. I just pulled the wheels, and noticed all the lug bolts were barely torqued on. Maybe 50ft lbs. No where near 88ft lbs. Clearly, this leads me to believe there were other things missed that should have been checked. Does anyone have an official...

    Almost put my car in a ditch.....

    Light rain, older asphalt road, a left hand corner going the speed limit.....and stock Potenzas. Scary. These tires not only suck, they're dangerous. I can't imagine letting my wife or kids drive a car with these tires. I'm spoiled by 10+ years of using A/S 3+ and guess I forgot tires this...
