    Love it. Been looking for a tool-style GMT for a while. Didn't want to pay Rolex $ for a batman and didn't want a clone either. The office GMT works for me too, i don't change time zones daily, just for longer travel. The blue dial & bezel are very subtle, almost black but changes to blue...

    Anyone else have a headlight bug?

    Anyone else have a headlight bug?

    Seems to be a chronic problem, at least for me anyway. Had a 2015 GTI, got a fly in the headlight, pissmed me off, traded it in for a 2017 R. Now this one has a light-fly too! WTH!? Anyone else have this? Anyone get it out?

    What are your favourite winter tires?

    Nokian hakkapeliitta or Gislavid Euro Frost. Performance winter tires just don't cut it for the snow we get. Need a proper snow tire. Cant say enough about the Nokians or Gislavids.

    MK7 defrosting issues

    Manual gearchange woes

    I so friggin jealous you guys have manual S3s! I have similar shifting in my R. Never as smooth as my 330i. After almost 5 years with this car either I'm use to it to I've gotten better. I still need to focus on shifting to get it smooth.
