    Any idea what's going on with 684 paving?

    So NYS finally decided to repave some of the worst sections of highway ever, which probably haven't been fully redone in 30 years, but did anyone notice that the new pavement starting right about Hardscrabble Rd. going north seems to be very low quality? It literally seems like they just went right over the old stuff. Anyone have better insight into what the overall project is?

    I had a blow out last year right near the Katonah exit. Which direction were you coming from? I slammed a pothole really hard recently coming from 84 west to 684. Taking it everyday, you quickly memorize the big ones to avoid.

    Had some highway redone by me recently. They put down the first layer which was shit and then two months later put down a super smooth top layer. My guess was they needed to let the first layer cure for a bit and then put a second layer on top to fill in and smooth out the impurities. Just a guess though

    I agree with you but I'm just happy they've finally paved it. Random: But was that you riding with me on 84 last night around 8ish? I gave a honk but I was in my own world on a phone call.

    That ramp is a fucking nightmare. I swear another pothole appears every day. Thank god I've managed to avoid them, but its becoming harder and harder. Who can we call to complain? Im sure they'll come fill the holes at a minimum.

    Ha, I thought that was you, but your avatar looked like a B8.5 instead of a B8, but yea, we were cruising near each other on that very section of 684 I'm talking about in my OP. I gave a wave at one point, but couldn't see much through the tints. I did hear the honk though.

    Haha nice! Yea my avatar is the B8.5 S5 that I used to have before this car. Sorry man didn't see the wave! I know I keep asking you this but, any luck with that windshield yet?

    Ah makes sense, and I'm still slacking on it big time, but plan on going to where you went. It's not in my field of view, but has been creeping more and more. I should probably get on that, and based on some thread recently, I need to demand OEM glass, so that should be fun.

    Also, way off-topic at this point, but what exhaust are you running? It wasn't loud cruising, but I could hear you get on it when passing the slow pokes

    Ah ok. Rick was very easy to deal with and he even made the repair at my house after picking up the glass from Danbury Audi. Super simple and he was done quick.

    You'll likely have to argue with the insurance as I did. Pain in the ass but they covered it in the end.

    I'm running the AWE Touring exhaust with stock downpipes. I have a 6spd manual so there's no drone or need for resonated DP's.
    Thanks for the compliment! I love this exhaust as I think it sounds perfect on the 3.0T. I had it on my S5 as well.

    You planning on an exhaust? Or do you have one currently?

    I'm all stock. I still have a third party warranty until February that has saved my ass big time in the last year so I don't want to mess that up. Otherwise, I think I'm just going to get the x-pipe, as I don't have the cash to throw two grand at an exhaust.

    Yea I hear you. My car is still under the CPO warranty until the end of December but the exhaust doesn't affect it. Not sure how your warranty company handles things though so best not to chance it. If you get the itch, you're much better off buying a used exhaust anyhow. Thats what I did this time around.

    Ah, that makes sense. I take my car to speedsport, and Chris told me he's had Fidelity deny claims before because of an intake, so I'll just ride it out, but I'll definitely keep my eye out in the classifieds. I just went through your build thread. Man, I wish was as capable as you, your car is awesome.

    Ouch. I believe it tho. Warranty companies are only out for themselves. Thanks for the kind words about my car! Ive been focusing on the wifes Q5 and kind of put a hold on my S4 for now, but I hope to have a minor update to the build thread shortly.
