For testing purposes connected the external soundaktor and module. Terrible pictures but the module is connected to provision wiring behind the driver seat. The speaker is sitting on the floor behind the passenger seat.

Coded for the module with VCDS, then with ODIS-E flashed unlocked SQ5 3.0 TDI firmware (for Gen 2.5 units) from here. No faults, output test works (super loud in the car, haha). So my coding, wiring, module and speaker are all good. I planned for this sometime ago so already had it configured in my driving profile data set. Checking measuring values of the module show it receiving/accepting driving profile settings properly but...

No sound while driving 😶. I suspect I've got the same issue I had with some of the unlocked firmwares I initially tried for the internal soundaktor. Which is the firmware I loaded is for a car with DSG 🤦🏿‍♂️. I suspect something in the phone where is looking for information from the DSG module which is not there on my 6MT.

From what I can tell the only generation 2.5 modules are from vehicles that only came with DSG so I might be out of luck. Fortunately I have a generation 2 module on its way from somewhere in Europe. Made it through customs yesterday so hopefully have it in by next week then get this going.

Got the driver side ttrs setup all buttoned up : tq’d, bleed, greased… also installed the zhong subframe collar kit so I can finally have my front fitment even visually and alignment wise. Not much to see other than the green washer/collars peaking out while the bolts still loose. Not tough to get them in though, just gotta loosen all 4 bolts first so you can get Enough gap to do each corner at a time.

For me personally with what these items do, it doesn’t warrant me to spend money on a “deadset” kit when all they do is center and shrink the mounting hole to bolt tolerances to directly square up the subframe to the body. Also they are only $28 bucks for the front kit lol. Zhong collars

Also for reference here’s the clearance between the 034 tall ball joints and the 370mm rotors *no dust/heat shields

Removed my spoiler extension. Looks great from the back and side, but it ruins the lines from the front and front quarters IMO. Back to the plain egg 🚗

No extension:
