Took it to the dealer- they cleaned off ABS sensors but said back right wheel bearing was shot. Lights still on after leaving dealership, they blamed it on the bearing. New bearing will be here tuesday..

Another update: got my wheel bearing replaced, dash lights were still on so they decided to install a completely new wheel sensor and that fixed it. They found a small oil leak somewhere, so my car is going back for the 3rd time in 2 weeks on thursday all of this work is under warranty, CPO is coming through for me big time

3 months later and I need another wheel sensor fixed, plus more oil leaks... Luckily everything is covered under warranty but my warranty ends this month

*EDIT: Got the car back today, got the fixes mentioned above plus an oil change, DSG service and had a sway bar link replaced

7/30/16: 2 year update
2 years and 15,xxx miles with this car and I am still in love. Sadly, my modding and fun will come to an end for a while as I'm starting college in 2 weeks, and funds will be low.

After a long while of being away at school, I figured it was time for more mods. Purchased an 034 Motorsports Rear Sway Bar & 034 Dogbone Insert. Didn’t have time to snap a pic of the RSB before installing but quality of the Dogbone insert looks great!
