I really have no idea. I didn't have any issues with my DSG neither. But the service manager advised it was a good update to get, to be on the safe side. It may be the placebo effect, but when slowing to a stop I think the car drops into first gear smoother... but I am not sure if its just psychological (trying to justify the extra 2hr wait as being not a waste of time )

time for the winter season

Have my winter wheels/tires installed, Ronal wheels with OEM VW centre caps. The wheels are 16x7.5 et35 with 205/55/16 tires. The offsets are a bit lower than I would of liked, but these came off of my dad's old A6 (his old winters), and I really didn't have to pay for them so why not.

Did you get the OEM lip locally?

Also, where did you get your work lights in the garage? I've been trying to get some, but all the ones I've seen are pretty crummy.

Great looking car, BTW! Where abouts in Toronto are you?

Thanks! sorry I haven't checked this thread in a while. I got my lip from Keffer Parts, and at the time is was the best deal. Brokerage and duties really killed the deal though.

I got my work lights from Princess Auto. I am located on the west end. As the weather gets better I will be making it out to the iDub meets at Krispy Kreme!

Not much update yet. But I have changed back to the summers, and removed the yellow laminX. All the parts and tools for my coilover install have now been sourced, and within a month I should be dropped!

I will also do a proper detail of my car soon. Would have done it already, but stupid Canada Post lost my package from eShine containing a porter cable 7424XP

In the meantime, here's a few shots I took recently:

Hi, thanks for the compliments! I am using an Olympus EP1 (micro 4/3s) with the Panasonic 25mm F1.4 (so-called Leica Summilux).

Hey I noticed you dropped your car on coils, perfect stance you got! What size spacers are you running? It looks like your front wheels would rub being that low??
