I don't think I could trade a German engineered car with anything but Subura is good quality. Maybe put money together for sedan S3 coming next year?

Perhaps. I'm thinking of going CPO next time actually.

My buddy always goes CPO with low mileage and gets good deals. I put too much miles on the car and not sure which way is the best. Buying new has been OK thou.

Two more years wait for S3 CPO

I will be driving tonight so I'll see if the auto dimming works as expected.
I need this. Where did you get it and how did you make it work?

I originally ordered this from Amazon. Not sure if you'll be able to order that exact model number from somewhere but something similar should work.

I've actually been tempted to install the OEM rain sensor and mirror lately but I don't have the tools needed to grind off the existing mount on the windshield. Nor do I want to pay for a new windshield right now when there's no cracks in the existing one. Maybe I should look into auto electric shops again and see what they'd charge for it.
