    I think we should have a "wheels within the house" coffee table book, with themes like Christmas.

    I'm down! I have 13-14 laying around. I thought about doing a pic in the house with all of them together but randomly placed. Would be so much work though.

    we'd have to get creative on additional themes.... I've got 2 CH-Rs in the bedroom right now... and a frisky lady friend coming over Friday night... can we make it NC-17?

    And you've got that hatch in the back so I think it qualifies. I've got family in town for Thanksgiving so I'm 50/50 on if I can make the next Rocky Mountain quattros get together.

    Going to try out some 3k LEDs this winter, should be great for stormy mountain drives. Weíll see if I end up switching back to the 6k this summer.

    Where'd you get the Thule Box? That's why he one I was looking at getting but can't find any place that has them. And are those the AeroBlade bars?

    I bought mine on Black Friday in 2016, cant remember if it was amazon or another online rack retailer. Looks like they stopped making them which is unfortunate, I see quite a few of them around Colorado so seems surprising itís a great box. I did see a few websites that have them from a quick google search: Rerack.com, allthingsjeep.com, and eBay.

    Yes they are the Thule AeroBlade edges, preferred over OEM bc they are adjustable.

    rei has the full line of thule boxes - that's where i got mine. and from time to time, they'll have 20% sales. i don't think there are many options to buy from online retailers for cheaper b/c the shipping charges on something that large would kill the deal.

    Yeah we have already enjoyed it a fair amount in stock form! Now that I am taking it over I am excited to play around with it. Not sure there are any modified Q5's in our city.

    beautiful Saturday in Denver. Met up with local member Shane @sferraro and his beautiful OEM+ AR and drove up to Cars & Coffee and then headed down to Arrowhead Golf Club.

    Appreciate it, Ya you never know what your going to get in Denver. It was snowing earlier in the week. I'll actually be up in Canada next week, not in your neck of the woods thou.

    I'm digging the 3k's. Over the past 2.5 weeks I've done two weekend trips to Jackson Hole and Steamboat in pretty bad wintery conditions and the 3K's definitely provide more visibility than the 6k's I was running prior. Much better in anything wet, don't reflect off as much as something whiter. I also think they look great with just the parking lights on, the contrast between the LEDs and fogs looks mean. Good price point as well. Still relatively new so no comment on reliability. I can send you pics when I get around to taking some!

    Had been playing with the idea of going coils for awhile now. As I went lower and lower on the KW HAS and as my stock dampers rear in on 60k miles the ride become a bit bouncy/floaty for my taste. Ended up buying @S-Fore 's Bilstein PSS10's a few weeks back (thanks again, great seller!) and had them installed at Black Canyon Performance earlier this week. Jace, the owner, is the man and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly recommend to anyone in the Denver area, love when you show up at a shop and the majority of cars present are track cars.

    I've got a few days on the PSS10's both city and highway and they are a huge improvement, flatter in turns, more poised, feels much more balanced overall. The bounce/float at speed on highway dips is gone for the most part, feels much more like a lowered sedan now (still a bit top heavy). I'm running F&R on 7 of 10, I like things pretty stiff and don't have kids or a wife to take into consideration. Think it's a good benchmark, may ramp it up for mtn runs or down to 5 or so for long road trips but i'll likely keep them around 7. Added bonus, my pano seems to be creaking less over driveways etc to because there is less flex then on the slammed stock dampers. Very stoked overall, should be driving Pike's Peak saturday with a big group of Audi/VW's... hoping the snow holds off (gotta love CO weather).

    Note on Ride Height for anyone considering PSS10, I was pretty much 29' square and asked to keep front the same and raise the rear a cm or two b/c I was barely rubbing the rear flare on huge dips (which i thought would be eliminated with the stiffer dampers anyone). They got the front 29" with a tad more room to play and the rears are bottomed at 29.25". I dig the look, little more rake, and it gives me a little more clearance for CO gravel roads, snow, etc.

    Jace snapped a few media shots for himself, they turned out great. love the subtle watermark placement.

    Ohh Emm Freakin' Gee. The aesthetic is so spot on I just want to kiss myself while looking at those pics. The perfect amount of contrast between wheels, mirrors, and exhaust tips against the finish and black optics. Look up "proper Teuton" in the dictionary and your machine is front and center.

    Kudos on the new suspension setup. I was just reviewing the H&R/Bilstein thread, and it's eery how similar the feedback is among all of us who ran shorter springs with stock dampers. I'd be curious if the installer has any feedback on how he handled the bump stops (if they hadn't already been modified for the springs).

    Gracias, senior! I feel the same way about your glacier paired with choice of BBS finish, cheers to you as well... so damn tasteful! The PSS10's do not use the OEM bump stops, they are left off. I was 99% sure and just texted Jace, they do a lot of bilstein installs and he confirmed they are not used.

    I think we should have a "wheels within the house" coffee table book, with themes like Christmas.

    I fully support this idea.
