    All new F&R OEM rotors and pads for my 15’ SQ w/34K on the ODO... seems to me like the first set lasted avg, but then after a few powerful stops got warped. What’s everyone else‘s exp w/brake life?

    On my SQ5, the front brakes are awesome, but the rear pads wore down quicker, and had to be replaced at 45K.
    I had them all done at the same time: pads, rotors, braided-steel hoses, and fluid flush/replace.

    @SQ5IVE came out great! With the overall darkness of your car, I'd love to see those wheels in carbon graphite.

    Loll, worst car day ever. I dropped my car off to the only “euro performance” shop in brooklyn to lower my air suspension settings. 3 hours later, they returned the car with the dash looking like a Christmas tree. Suspension error, headlight adjustment error, suspension height error... just wonder if Audi service accept the “I don’t know what happened, i didn’t touch anything” excuse so I don’t get charged 2 arms and a leg to bring it back to normal

    Sounds like they may have lowered it lower than the recommended height of 17mm. At least that’s what it is on a6/7 and similar

    I installed them on Sunday so dont have a lot of drive time on them. I have them as low as they can go and it has not been noticeably any bouncier than stock. I live in Philly so its not exactly smooth roads so ill get a true feel when Im out of the city and on the highway. So far the ride quality seems pretty good and I’m very happy with them.

    From what I gather; they used Audi scan tool to recalibrate air suspension setting, making each ride height setting 50mm lower than it should be. Turns out my car has actually lowered, but I now have air suspension service light on and air suspension service mode warning, whatever that means.

    I sprayed them outside. Dont think it would be an issue in a ventilated garage and wearing a mask.

    just replaced HR springs with used KW SC. set to mid rebound, but might drop stance lower when i go back into the shop for alignment.

    waiting to get some 10mm and 15mm spacers too but love the look of it.

    i took it to a new shop (Eurowurxs) located in Burbank, CA and Vic the owner showed me that the previous shop has basically stripped and that they had fucked up about every everything on the last install. he gave me all new nuts and bolts but said that nothing broke luckily. now i know to go there instead and not cut corners (and money). ha fuck :(

    What did you do to your Q/SQ5 today?

    Has anyone tried turning off yellow corner light in headlamp in 18’ q5?

    Or changing to personal data SIM for WiFi clients

    My sunroof was quiet after the initial fix, but It came back and I took it back in. Now they’re going to replace the entire sunroof.
