    Anyone near Schaumburg with a 3.0 C7 running test/race pipes on a stock exhaust? I kind of want to hear before I go forward with a purchase.

    What is the desire for e85 when the vehicle is not a flex fuel engine?

    Tons of 3.0T drivers blend. The Ecu Adjusts the fuel trims to hit the desired AFR as long as the mix isnít too crazy and fuel pumps are healthy/adequately modified. Same reason itís okay to run a meth kit without a tune as long as you log. Both of these things will lower knock.

    That said... not as many people are actually testing fuel and using a calculator to hit the same blend consistently...

    Any Chitown folks willing to help test drive a car at the Westmont Audi dealership on my behalf?
    Looking at the 2017 Audi Allroad, but am 5 hrs away. Hoping a helpful person is willing to check out the wagon for me so I can potentially purchase it.

    I live about 10 mins from the dealership in Westmont and have been using them over the last 2 years, since I moved into town. Pretty good customer service imo. What are looking to get from another person test driving it for you?

    It was a 2017 a4 Allroad but it was sold since I posted this. Thanks for responding regardless.

    Iím out of town but have bought my last two Audis from them. Never used their service but sales was easy to deal with.

    Hey guys I am back with Audi. Just pick up used 2017 S3 P+ with S sport seats, mag ride and virtual cockpit. Love how this little car can do. After coming from B7 A4 stage 2 no mods in the future for this car or maybe jb1.

    B8 A4 Avant Timing Chain

    Hi All,
    Any recommendations for a Chicagoland shop to replace the timing chain and guides on my B8 A4 Avant? Does anyone have experience working with Midwest Performance Cars in the West Loop? After reading through most of the three it sounds like most peeps are happy with the work/maintenance done by Dynarev and GRD. Any insight is appreciated!

    How many miles on your B8? Starting last year, I think, Audi is doing the timing chain as a recall/special warranty, not sure exactly whatís called, for the 2.0 B8ís and some VW models. A few restrictions apply but the main thing is that you have to be under 100k.

    62k miles. There is a class action lawsuit, but dealerships are not addressing the issue proactively. The benefits of the poorly negotiated settlement provide for a percentage of the repairs to be covered under an extended warranty. I plan to keep my car and would like to take care of this proactively as opposed to waiting for my engine fail.

    A few of us are planning to go to Route 66 Raceway on Friday, leaving GRD in West Chicago around 3. Let me know if you (or anyone else) wants to roll with.
