Finally got the gold BBS LM's mounted up. 19x8.5 ET48, 5mm rear spacer. Stock size Michelin PS4S. Big thanks to Paul and Kim @ SupremePower for a top notch experience. Highly recommend dealing with SupremePower whenever you can.

Car isn't the cleanest right now but here you go.

Finally got a six pack of the good stuff.

Full month wait after “in stock” purchase, no tracking it just randomly showed up today. To say having that much money out in the wild for that long is stressful is a understatement.

All of your money is potentially out in the wild, every time your wife leaves the house.

Detail day. Will be out of town all week a d wanted to get a jump on the detailing for Streetcar takeover Bowling Green this upcoming Saturday. Ran out of time for interior, but got the outside done. While cleaning and rotating the tires, I found 2 nails in one tire. Small, but not risking it. Ordered a new one and will have this one patched and installed on my spare wheel. Is anyone else going to SCT this Saturday? I'm going to be entering into the 12s class. Hope I dont get schooled by a c8 again this year.

You need to paint your rusty rotor hubs. And some kind of tire shine.

Yeah, discovered I was out of tire shine half way into the detailing. As for rotors, I am looking at some ebc bsd black rotors when I do my first brake job on this car. That all depends on if I do the macan upgrade or not.

What a pain in the ass. I knew this was going to happen soon too. I got in my car this morning and it started up perfect, no issues. I drive about 5 mins away to the tax collector and when I get back in my car it starts up perfectly fine again. I drive another 5 minutes away to the shell station. I get my fuel. Go to start the car. I get a single click from the starter and it gives up. Then all the random errors pop up. I knew right away it was the battery. I go inside the gas station and ask the clerk if there's anyway to get me a jump and a random guy that was checking out said he'd give me a hand. I tried to give him a $20, but he wouldn't take it. Immediately after this I went to grab a battery, already got it back up and running again. 11:30 the battery was dead. By 12:15 the new battery was installed.

“Oh, you’re ordering an RS3, suck on this dead battery”

It knows.

I got 4 years out of it though and that's the best I've ever done on an oem battery. The oem battery on my mk6 only lasted 2 years. I bought that car and within 6 months the battery died on me. It doesn't surprise me one bit that it died before I could get rid of the car.
