I'll be swapping my coolant reservoir too. It's likely the stress cracks only open up under high heat.

I didn't think about that but you're right. Still a possibility. I wish I could test it and put it to rest that the reservoir was indeed the problem.

Thats the external reservoir for his Eibach multipro R2 coils it controls compression and rebounding.


Eibach been having closeout deals on some of their suspension components for a few months

Right, they dropped the price twice so far. I wanted the R1 but i was too late and the R2 will be too much for A daily

Great weekend at grattan. The car did great and I was able to smoke my prior PB with a 1:33.16. prior was 1:37.xx. on the old suspension and before I did all poly bushings. I was really hoping the new setup was going to pay off and it did big-time. I'm so happy with how the cat behaves now.

Didn't have any overheating issues either. Amazing

Replaced the serpantine belt, after inspecting I had some wear marks on it that I didn't like. 2nd one in 80k. I do tend to replace things before they go though. It probably had some life left.
