The wheels sorry lol. Looks like the same color I want to get on my CW. I originally wanted gloss black but then saw some white audi's with gunmetal and loved it. Best look.

I'm pretty sure the previous owner powder coated them. But it's actually a lighter grey. Brake dust just changes the color of them (which is actually pretty cool as I have a wheel that can be two colors LOL).

Emptied my catch can after ~1k miles. Probably emptied it way too early as there was pretty much nothing, but hey, makes me feel better LOL

Yeah I never asked AU regarding the super fast peak from 1.8k to 3k. The car runs fine, so I assume it's just my specific setup. I'm not complaining though, it's hella fun hahaha

I'm curious too how we'd do next to each other. I may have a slight advantage due to the Haldex controller, but it'd definitely be a close one.

Thanks! Yeah, she's my daily so I didn't want it to be too crazy.

The Haldex controller was a great investment. I immediately felt the difference after driving it; like you can guess, the biggest difference is when you give it WOT from a dig. In the canyons it helps significantly as the specific controller that I have (HPA Competition) can keep the driveline engaged under braking, so it makes coming out of corners hella fun; from what HPA says, it's very similar to their "race mode". Totally recommend it despite it being expensive, but you can find deals on the forum like I did. I wasn't going to pay $1.1k retail for it.

Regarding the adjustable controller, you know, you can add it after the fact if you want too... so it's not like I couldn't get it. However I personally feel that the programming the controller comes with is fine. I guess I could only see people truly wanting it to send more power to the rear.

I noticed you're in Long Beach. If you're ever out to a Last Sunday cruise, feel free to hit me up and I'll give you a ride.

Ordered the last Neuspeed part I want... I'll install the front sway after I buy some SuperPro control arms because you might as well upgrade it while you're at it...

Also because I'm slowly preparing my R to be a track monster for when Fastivus comes around
