    So slick. What's that box? I'm shopping around for one... had my eye on the Thule Alpine XT in the White/Black, but open to other options.

    It is an Inno Shadow 16 in matte black. I removed the decal to give it a sleek look.

    FYI body shop had to sand the edges quite a bit for even gap all way around. Though yours looks much more even than mine.
    I plan on using 3m double sided tape. I suspect thatís what Audi uses on the RS4.

    I orginally ordered the gloss black, but didnt have it in stock after all. So I saved a little coin. I was going to get it paint matched, but it has grown on me.

    It was less than 10 minutes. While I was filling, I got the other wheel off so it wasn't too big of a deal.

    What Did You Do To Your Avant Today?

    Used it to haul gear this past weekend




    Then 8 wheels/tires tonight to storage (couldnít fit four 255ís in a row in the back seat area, so I had to swap one of them for a 225)

    However that same box on my wifeís q5 took 6-7 off the mileage and it affected the highway cruising a lot, t felt like you had a windsail on the roof. My theory is this is due to the sloping roofline and how far forward you have to mount to box to the the tailgate on the q5. The net result is it overhangs really for over the hood and has a very noticeable reverse rake so it just funnels air between the roof and the box.

    We just bought a Skybox 16 but havenít yet taken it on a road trip so weíll see how the different box design affects things.

    Nice! I was on the hunt for a B7 Avant with the titanium package when I found my B8 Avant. I want a box but a 2-3 mpg hit would really suck. I only get 20.8 mpg as is without a box or even carrier bars.

    At lower speeds it wonít make a huge difference since wind resistance goes up exponentially. But yea itís definitely noticeable at the pump. I wouldnít leave the box on all the time. Of course Iím lucky to break 20mpg on my commute and my wife gets 17 in her q5. Traffic blows here.

    Put a Curt hitch on:


    Also did the rear brakes by removing the EPB actuators and doing a mechanical rewind.

    when adding that badge, is it easiest to put the piece in the "a" first and then line up the diagonal on the outer piece?

    Yup, thatís what I found easiest. Itís super easy to lightly tack it down and line it up before firmly pressing it on.

    I did the outer piece first, so I had a hard edge to work off of to try to keep it lined up.

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I went with the bronze, kinda crossed my fingers. I was having trouble with color choices other than "metallic bright" and gunmetal. But I love how it came out!

    Thanks! I'm digging it. Can't wait for more seat time (and not fully loaded... back seat and cargo area have all four stock wheels / tires, old suspension, spare wheel and everything in the spare wheel well that had to come out for the air system).
