They were awesome as always. Thanks Berg!

The car sounds freaking amazing. Pretty impossible to describe or get on video. Amazingly with 'S' off it's not much louder than stock. With 'S' on it sounds like a freaking Ferrari V8. It's parked in the garage at denver place (18th and curtis) and i will be going down to DU later today for some job fair thing if anyone wants to meet up to check it out (be done around 6-7).

Did you pull the trigger on the Capristo setup on the RS4? If so - well done! Looks and sounds gorgeous. Would love to see the finished product in person.

I'm parked in the garage at 15th and Wynkoop during work week days/hours.

LOL yeah the car is not there anymore. But i'll be driving the car to and from the office daily until the weather turns now. Let me know if you want to meet up down town some time.

I also live in city park for anyone who wants to swing by.

Sadly it's a mess right now :( Berg had to move it around when not working on it so it's been rained on and all that. i'll clean it up saturday though, it's mostly been in the shop since you worked on it :)

Well, I would have to walk all the way across the street and all. [:D]

I only work 1/2 day on Fridays so anytime in the morning would be awesome! I'd love to hear it in more than a "revving whilst parked" situation as we all know that's just a big 'ol tease. PM me and let me know what your schedule allows.

Alright, bshanna. You, HighaltitudeRS4, zach88 and me need to have a Lodo RS4 mini-gtg soon, maybe in a Coors Field parking lot. And mec, Denker, and d_d 7 came come too. Also gotta have Juan, seeing as he was dumping on my paint (I'd give it a 5 out of 10") the other day.

A bit harder to do more than a parking rev down town... If you have a little more time we can go for a drive or something? i'm pretty open before 11 tomorrow.

yeah i kinda dropped the ball on communication there - sorry about that..

Sounds like fun. I'm either really busy or really open depending on the day. But with a little heads up can usually find time.

Thanks man, i agree it is exactly what i was hoping for. The video is good but doesn't do it justice -- especially at WOT.

No problem rescheduling. Worth the wait to get as many together as possible.

How would you guys feel about a cruise? Maybe do some driving up to silverthorne on of these sundays before snow falls, grab lunch at the dillon dam brewery in silverthorne, hang out for a bit, and cruise back?

mec.. your youtube video is fuk!n hilarious..... How well do the RSes track at altitude? I never had the chance. Hope too when I get back.. I wounded what an 11.5-.7 RS4 at sea level will do at altitude? Does anyone know if Bandimere is higher than PPIR?

Thanks :) No clue, I've been asking but it seems none of the local rs4's have gone.

Bandimere is 500 ft higher, couldn't find much about DA at PPIR though. I've never been but I seem to recall someone telling me that they only have an 1/8th mi dragstrip, and they don't do test and tune every wednesday like bandimere does :)

When do you get back?

Is the Rs4 over there? sounds like you can't even get it up to speed on an island that small

mec i might take you up on the bandimere test and tune, although tonight i threw a code that i haven't had a chance to diagnose.

Not even close. It has been having various things done to it until I get back. JHM S/Ced it and its about to get bagged. No cars here but good ole' Army issue. Hell, my Econoline van here has never seen above 25. Worst performing low mileage van w/ 2500 miles since its not allowed to open up....
