    This is my SQ5 on the lowering links. I have them essentially as much of a drop as you can get. The ride is a little bouncy when sitting in dynamic. When anyone else is in the car I run Comfort and it smooths it out quite well.

    What did you do to your Q/SQ5 today?

    Engine tuning an SUV was also once considered ďweirdĒ...🤫

    What did you do to your Q/SQ5 today?

    Iím fine with lowering a car. My wifeís q5 is so high I can almost fit my head in the gap. Were it my car I absolutely would have dropped it a couple inches already. Iím simply saying Iím of the option that too low is a thing. Thereís a good ride height from an aesthetic standpoint and a function standpoint, and itís not where the tops of the tires are touching the fenders while the sides still have a 2-3Ē gap. It looks goofy and disproportionate.

    However a couple of ones posted above look great.

    Also none of us modify our cars to please others. Hell all my car friends constantly give me shit about my b7ís stock sport ride height, that itís SUV status and whatnot. I only plan on lowering it to get rid of the b7 reverse rake. Also a little low (an inch lower or less) would look nice.

    Iím sort of looking forward to getting the Q5s timing chains done so I can get it tuned for my wife. The 2.0t is a tad gutless when plopped in a car as huge as the q5.

    Carista FTW, made a couple nice changes;

    - removed alarm when ignition is on and door is open
    - gear shown in drive and sport
    - oil temp / lap time enabled
    - disabled signal wink
    - enabled fog light to run with day time running

    Its a great app, shame they have a crappy pay structure now.

    I believe itís a coding setting on the Central Electronics module. I turned it off that way on my b7 but havenít tried on the q5. I would imagine b8s have fairly similar coding locations as previous b-chassis cars.

    My understanding is on the B8s the disable door chime coding does not work for US coded cars. I did read that switching the region does allow it to work, but I havenít gotten around to trying it as it doesnít bother me that much. The OP is from Canada which may also explain why it works for him.

    any chance you know how to switch the region, and what else it would effect if you did? I HATE that door chime. Also the automatic parking break thing is the worst

    The coding was successful on my B8 (MY12), but not on the .5 variant (MY13 & 16). I hadn't read about the region variable. At this point, I can't say it really bothers me, if only because I rarely encounter it. That said, the other day I had a passenger who was savvy enough to question why the car didn't yell at him for being late in putting on his seat belt.

    Oh yup, thanks for the correction!

    I may try the region coding just for kicks. The thread I read involved someone switching to Germany, but I imagine other regions might work as well.
