Okay guys... DIY day at my house is either going to be on January 3rd or January 10th. I will determine the final day right after Christmas so i can get a feel for which day is better for most people. Im in Sussex Country, NJ.

I have 1 garage spot at the moment available to do work in. I might have 2 by the time the DIY comes around. I have a driveway where we can work on 2 or 3 cars with major modifications that require stands etc.

I have a whole bunch of tools necessary for doing almost anything that we need done. Jacks, Stands, Air Tools etc. 80 gallon compressor so we can use multiple air tools at once.

I also have a VAG-COM for anyone that needs some coding modification done such as... Remote Windows, Fogs Only, RNS-E + Bluetooth coding, etc...

I figure after we are all done we can cruise to the local Hooters for some dinner and sight seeing.

If you plan on coming add your name to the list below. Let me know what kind of modifications you want to do and ill confirm we can do it.

If you have any questions send me a PM. I will give you my address through PM or email only.

I am kind of new to this sight. I would like to do front pads and rotors(slotted). Oh and some Vag-com for the windows and fogs. I just got my car back from the dealer. They didnt know nothing about doing the fogs and didnt want to the windows. I have a 04 A8. I live in Central Jersey.

Any ideas on exhaust. I like the way the RS4, S6 and S8 sound. It dont have the honda exhaust note that I hate.

I would like to do some extra vag- com for the fogs only, and have some luminex yellow vinyl that Jason gave to me for the fogs....or maybe by then I'll buy a set of xexon matched fogs and just install those..

I'd like to make it but it's a little too far in advance for my schedule. I'll know when the time gets closer.

I need to do my fogs w/VAG, VAG windows, and probably put in a NAV headunit....oh ya and another other items Santa brings me.

Seems like everyone needs some vag-com work done... i should start charging for this... haha never!

All of the other mods you guys are doing are easily do-able! I think i might do my snub and serpentine belt this day if no other major mods are being done... that should be a good time :)

If you have an A4 i do not believe you need to take the front bumper off... much easier than the s4.

No problems, just thinking of getting one installed. I looked at the telematics forum: seems motorola or parrot would be an inexpensive solution, unlike OEM or RNS-E

I would suggest it. Your A6 should be pre-wired for a phone. You can connect to the speaker on the B pilar on the driver side for sound. As for a mic you should have a slot either in the A pilar or in the dome lighting. Run the microphone to one of those locations and your good to go. Feels stock for a fraction of the price.

Alright guys it looks like its official. Its going to be the 10th of January. Im sure all of you are aware its winter and its going to be a little cold so dress warm! I will have the oven on in the garage so it will be heated.

As far as the mods go we can pretty much do a number of things (Interior, VAG, Exhaust, Etc). However, since its cold out i am going to suggest that we hold off on suspension work for those who are thinking of doing it. Its going to be too cold and time consuming for this. I will have another one in the spring where we can surely take care of it.

After we are all done we will drive to the local Hooters for lunch/dinner.

Things to remember:

1. Dress Warm
2. Bring your mods and parts (if you would like to bring some tools that is fine).
3. BYOB- For hosting this event i think it would be fair if every of age to purchase a six pack or two to bring for everyone.
4. Start time- 10 A.M

Any questions please feel free to ask. PM me for my address

I have 12 Bright Individual White LEDS that I bought but don't know what to do with them yet. I hope I can get some ideas when I get there.

Probably an ipod integration kit

Which kit? I'm going to do same (Neo or DICE -- Neo if it allows BOTH ipod and headunit/st-wheel controls at same time) but not sure how/where to mount Nano. Would like to put it up by vents, but don't want cord flopping around when not in car.

I'm ordering the dice kit from sean at vividracing (sponsor here) on monday. he said it would be here before the 10th.

i did a little research and it seems dice and neo have the same functionality, including radio, wheel and ipod control.

i'm thinking of glove box mounting - that n the armrest/center console seem to be the 2 popular choices. i want mine to remain relatively inconspicuous and am fine with mainly st. wheel control.

wofman
12-27-2008, 08:56 PM
I'm close to hijack here -- sorry, Joey. Figure others might be interested, though.

Dice does not allow both st wheel AND ipod control (have to change dipswitch to one or other - presumably in glove box); Need to find out about Neo. B/c Symphony does not allow read out of data on headunit, I'm looking for mounting in eyesight for reading the nano screen, ie on dash somewhere.

well I just got my carbonio in the mail today, only problem is that I need some of the stock intake parts which my car did not come with... So if anyone with a B7 2.0T wants to make a little trade at this DIY day I'll give you my Spectre Intake, which only has about 700 miles on it, for your stock intake, or atleast just the pieces that I need. Heres a pic of the intake:

It really sounds awesome with the turbo, I just got such a good deal on a carbonio I decided to go with it mainly for aesthetic reasons.

Theres not much room in there. I used it at first, hit it with a hammer to break the sensor loose, then, used a spud wrench. And for the rear sensor i used a small cresent wrench. I'll bring it though. We'll get the sensors out. After i found the right tools and angles to get in there it was easy.

Pretty new to Audizine, just wanted to say, this site is great. I wish I had some mods, but maybe spring. Its good to see car enthusiasts help out others like this.

This might sound like a stupid question but, Whats the Vag Windows? I wanted to see if I can get my rear windows on my A6 to roll all the way down.
Also is it possible to have the fog lights on with the parking lights?

Thanks for info & sorry for Thread Jack

I'm sorry I didnt read this sooner. I might be down I just gotta check how far Sussex is from me. good idea! I have a roof spoiler that needs some painting but if you don't want painting I'll do it before hand and I can just put it on at your house. otherwise I'm just down to hang out. if anyone needs help hardwiring a V1 just bring the v1 box with the wires, I'll bring some tools I can get it done pretty quick. I know its not much but that's what I have to offer for help lol. hopefully I'll make it.

also my headlights could use a nice cc so if we can do them and the others at the same time that would be awesome if not I'll do it during the spring.

Alright guys it looks like its official. Its going to be the 10th of January. Im sure all of you are aware its winter and its going to be a little cold so dress warm! I will have the oven on in the garage so it will be heated.

As far as the mods go we can pretty much do a number of things (Interior, VAG, Exhaust, Etc). However, since its cold out i am going to suggest that we hold off on suspension work for those who are thinking of doing it. Its going to be too cold and time consuming for this. I will have another one in the spring where we can surely take care of it.

After we are all done we will drive to the local Hooters for lunch/dinner.

Things to remember:

1. Dress Warm
2. Bring your mods and parts (if you would like to bring some tools that is fine).
3. BYOB- For hosting this event i think it would be fair if every of age to purchase a six pack or two to bring for everyone.
4. Start time- 10 A.M

Any questions please feel free to ask. PM me for my address

Sounds good.... I just need to be in Brooklyn by 3:30

01-08-2009, 11:00 AM
Yeah - not too thrilled about it. Something of a mystery probem, difficut to separate from suspension factors since noise is in synch with road surface.

These buggers can get expensive - also did rear brakes, plugs, fuel filter and some misc suspension work discovered while going after the noise symptom. Not sue if Sam will be done in time (Fri) but maybe. How late is this shindig going to run? Hopefully I get it back Fri, no later than Sat noon and can at least swing by for some last minute supervising....

Not if you have the right tools. Air compressor and impact gun are a HUGE help when it comes to front brakes. With Clint there I'd imagine you'd have everything you need. Unless there's no compressor?

joeycuccaro
01-08-2009, 11:43 AM
80 gallon compressor with pretty much every tool imaginable...

FYI... Forecast is calling for some snow on Saturday... I figure we will be working on one car at a time anyway so the DIY is still on regardless of the weather because we will just use the space in the garage.

Was supposed to be 3 days from 1/2; actually shipped 1/5. Other than that....

Warren, I ordered a Dice kit on Monday from vivid (was told it would be here Friday).

Really sorry I couldn't make it -- steering rack (no car) and delayed ipod kit (no project), but otherwise was good to go.

But...now... I'm set! We have ipod!

After reviewing with Sam at Elite Motors, decided to proceed to install my Nano Gen 4 using Neo Prolink. Nano charges/plays thru the apple connection wired to kit; simultaneously have all controls with ipod along with volume and "next/back" selection from steering wheel or radio. Turn it off or switch to radio or CD, and ipod holds the place where it was. [Symphony won't allow data transmission to headunit (SAT version req'd for that trick).]

Best part is I have wire to ipod in my coin/card tray (where I can store my Nano also). I open tray, extend wire and then close tray leaving just an inch or so of wire and connector that attaches to ipod. Ipod is clipped to dash right above tray. Very clean (little semi-circle opening for wire above tray -- approx 1/8"). Can read albums, playlists, etc. on ipod. Can crank volume with both hands on steering wheel at same time as driving at excessive speed, or lower it, change tracks when police officer at side window requests me to do so. [>_<]

Done with my trip? Just put ipod away, return wire to tray, close tray. Stealth ipod. Seems like that is what card holder was really built for.

See "ipod" thread on A6 for future pictures posted.
