    Well...................

    If you remember last years meet up that I fell through on, you'll know why I didn't try to disappoint you again. I barely got my car together in time and I feel like I barely made it home alive this year. EDC can do that to a person.

    That said, I made some friends up there and they invited us up for some boating fun. If I make it up this summer, I will definitely reach out.

    Itís all good my friend. My car has been down for the last week and a half. Plus, I totally get the EDC reference.

    That said, I expect a meet up the next time you are in my city!

    I did some LED stuff too. Figured since I was changing the mirror caps, I might as well upgrade the puddle lights. Took a bayonet type bulb and removed the ends, cut the board and some of the plastic housing to fit. It was a dirty job, but it works and the it's a minor detail.

    (Second one turned out better since I got the first one too hot when taking it apart)

    I also did an Optima No Rinse wash and snapped a photo.

    Got my car back from being ceramic coated and wow. It's like a brand new car. Had a two step paint correction done plus the ceramic coating and wow what a shine and brilliance. Just check the pictures below. The last picture is actually a reflection of my garage ceiling on the hood. Thats how clear it is. If your in the San Fransisco Bay Area check out MAR Quality Protection as they did a remarkable job on my car.

    That's awesome. Do you know which one you used? I did my dad's A8L back a few years ago and it still shines like a mirror. It's amazing stuff. I want to use it on my car, but the paint needs a lot of correction before I want to lock that in.



    As far as my car, I left it at home today. It's also showing P0491 and P0492 codes for the Secondary Air Injection. I'm really hoping that it has to do with the actual pump and not the head ports. If I have to take this thing apart again, I might as well build the bottom end

    My detailer used SB3 Alpha coating. My paint was pretty bad so he had to do a two step correction.

    That looks absolutely incredible. Would you mind telling me what you had done costs? I'm sure there are lots of variables as well as variations based on location (I am in northern VA). Thanks.

    I was quoted around $900 for a standard one stage paint correction w/ a 4 year ceramic coating. It usually hovers around that area depending on who you go with. Some people charge as high as $1500 for those premier shops. But once you get to a car that has alot of swirls and the paint is not the greatest of condition (like mine was), stage 2 is needed where a compounding stage is done to remove those deep swirls and scratches. Very labor intensive so that step usually adds another 200-400 depending on the place. So all in all for a decently priced ceramic coating w/ two stage your looking at $1200+.

    3.0T? Ports are probably clogged. Under 120K miles or 10 years? You are still covered under warranty for that.

    I cleaned the intake ports.

    Those are the exhaust ports for the SAI he's referring to.

    It's something I just learned about or I would have done it at the same time.

    How was it done? I canít see how you can clean the ports yourself without having the high pressure water jet cleaner we use at the dealer, or taking off the manifolds are drilling out the individual ports.

    oops didnít see this. Doing it when cleaning intake valves doesnít really save you time, itís a different repair approach. The individual ports are accessible from behind the exhaust manifolds and the main ports are accessed from the front of the engine behind freeze plugs.

    Yeah, but I had the thing in service position and belts and front pipe were off. And the momentum of all that for a carport mechanic helps.

    technically no, but since youíre only just barely over by mileage, might be worth it to inquire with the dealer.

    Brakes have been squealing and now the brake lights are flashing and beeping at me. I had a pad set ready to go, but seems as I need rotors now too.

    Went on FCPEuro and ordered up some Zimmerman Sports to go along with the Akebonos that I have sitting in my storage. Bought some caliper paint as well. I should be doing this job next weekend. I'll start rebuilding the front calipers that I have this weekend in preparation. I have the kit for the rear, but I doubt that I will rebuild them.

But once you get to a car that has alot of swirls and the paint is not the greatest of condition (like mine was), stage 2 is needed where a compounding stage is done to remove those deep swirls and scratches. Very labor intensive so that step usually adds another 200-400 depending on the place. So all in all for a decently priced ceramic coating w/ two stage your looking at $1200+.
    Thanks for the info. Appreciate it.

    Had a very successful day with the car yesterday. Sorry if I am breaking the rules by posting a day late. In order from small to big...

    I hard wired in a phone mount with built in qi charger to my car so that I wouldn't have wires crossing my cabin. I hate wires and having to plug my phone in, so now I can just place it on the charger and be ready to go.



    Next I did a stud conversion. I run spacers on my car to get the s6 wheels further out, and I didn't really trust the extended bolts that I had. These were also needed for the next parts I installed...



    And now for the big one...



    I did a brembo 18z brake swap onto the front of the car using stoptech pads and a set of Mercedes rotors that I had machined slightly. Using a bolt kit I got on ebay I was able to bolt them on, and I was able to reuse the stock brake line for now. I am planning on doing stainless lines all around when I do the rear pads and rotors soon. After a couple hundred miles they are working very well. I will be starting a build thread talking about some of the things I have done to my car soon, and will post more details in that thread.

    Performed some needed maintenance

    I too am breaking the rule of "today" because it's been about 2 weeks since I did this but here goes..............

    Replaced my upper control arms (upper links) on both sides and replaced the lower stabilizer links on both sides (those weren't bad I don't think but since I was there I figured I might as well do them). Yes, all parts are aftermarket.

    Also changed front diff, rear diff and transaxle fluids. Was not as easy of a job as I would have liked; even on a lift and being at a shop that had LOTS of tools. Don't want to ever do it again.

    Also, (don't have the pics right now) put the 2nd driver's door lock actuator in the car yesterday. Got a cheap one from Ebay for $40. Learned a lesson on that one. Everything worked fine except it allows the car to stay locked when you exit a locked car.........so you get locked out if you leave the keys inside. So, I went to a junkyard yesterday and pulled one from a 2006 A6 (same year as my car) and put it in and everything works like a charm. At least for now. Hope it lasts a few years. If you have questions on how to do this job, ask me, I'm your man. I have spend numerous hours removing and installing these things. But ask me soon while it's all fresh in my mind. LOL.

    I have NO IDEA how to get the pictures to post correctly. They keep rotating. Even when I try to outsmart it and rotate them one turn in the opposite direction before uploading them, they still rotate them again.
