    I did!

    Now I need the proper exhaust to go with it.

    Likely going to get your exact exhaust.



    Can you post some video of yours?

    Good thinking! You'll need the GT one to match the bumper layout.

    I don't have anything with the new exhaust except a cold start in the garage. It's absolutely useless, though, because there is no dynamic headroom in the recording. The problem is I've never heard an exhaust on the Internet that sounded anything like what it does in reality. This is because of cheap mics, auto-level recording, compression algorithms, and crappy computer speakers. I can try to take some more, but every past attempt has sounded nothing like it does in real life.

    I will say this, though, having not heard anything else in real life, this one sounds great to me. It's beautiful and loud when you get on it, or off, but when just cruizing it's surprisingly quiet. There is no drone on the highway. Another benefit is that you don't need a tunnel anymore. Every underpass is a thrill. The first week you have it, you'll be stepping down a little harder or letting up every time you go under one. . .with a big smile on your face. Up around 8K rpm, it's like having an orgasm in your ears.

    Case in point...
    Strad put straight pipes on a V8. You can't tell how loud they are until you hear him scream to be heard over them.

    I just got back from taking the GT to Arlington, where our Audi club had races at K1 Speed indoor karting. I did pretty good. On the way home at around 10:PM, I shut off the AC and opened the windows as the temperature had dropped to a chilly 101. God, I love this tune & exhaust combo. It's a great feeling when you can't get enough of what you already own.

    Did you get the TCU tune as well? Curious if you noticed the R-tronic improved?

    I did not. After hearing that it has to be re-tuned over and over again, I'm no longer interested. Besides, it really isn't bad in it's stock form.


    {EDIT} I have since learned that the GT's are already tuned differently anyway.

    Thanks to Andrew @ ExotiCARe for fabricating my custom Alcantara/leather R8 floor mats for me!

    Lower section is black alcantara. Upper section is black smooth leather. Piping surround is black smooth leather with white contrast stitching.

    Very sweet look and feel.

    So, Joel, what's going on?
    It's been a month without any updates.
    How goes the build? Any progress pics?

    Not until spring probably.

    Have 2 new offices opening over the next few months as I expand my business locations from 1 to 3.
    Taking a good chunk of my time and money.

    Once I get those humming along, Ill get back to the build.

    I did decide (after talking with both the QuickSilver and the FabSpeed reps) on the Quicksilver SuperSport (non-valved) facelift/GT exhaust.
    Gonna be sweet when done.

    At least Ive got the GT bumper. Thats the hard to acquire piece.

    For now just going to enjoy it as is.

    Thanks Mops!

    And yeah, its a little scary, and going to be time consuming.
    The hardest part is with multiple locations, I cant be everywhere at once, so finding and training doctors and staff to do things the way I would, is the hard part. Ill likely have another 2 coming here in a few years as well, so then Im really going to be a manager and mentor.

    So in business, its much like the mod bug.
    I start with one, and say, thats it. Not doing anything else.
    Well, I guess I could do another, oh wait, this place just came open, I gotta jump on that. Lets make it 3.
    But Im stopping there. Wait, what? 2 more. A f$&k it. Do it.

    Im stopping at 5 though. Or so I tell myself.

    Need some help deciding on this custom plate.
    Im between these 2. First one references me being a dentist (its a root canal reference).
    The second is an obvious nod to the Gated shifter.

    Im going to try to run them off set so I can add German registration stickers to the plate.

    I decided against the LMS GT3 plate as it looks too similar to normal plate codes in my state.

    I went with the GATED plate.
    Finally worked out putting together a Monroney label for my car since Audi doesnt have them any more.
    Took all the info they gave me and put it together, as well as an addendum sticker for modifications.
    Listed it as I bought it.

    These are listed by VIN, and dealers can pay to use the generator to put together labels for thier used cars.
    Neat site.
