      Curious, but during the time you installed the Tyrolsport brace was Unibrace not making the XBQ?

      I’m so freaking jealous. This is the wheel setup I wanted to run, but they wouldn’t clear my callipers either =( I ended up with a different OZ wheel that I’m not as happy with.

It’s hail season here in Colorado so I haven’t been racing and the car has sat in the garage for the better part of 2 months.

      A few days before I left for Montréal(Canadian F1 Grand Prix) the water pump decided it had enough and left me with a $700 bill. Great timing & thanks car. Even with the unexpected car trouble the GP was a ton of fun and I was able to meet up with an old friend, have some beers, and watch some racing.

      .........

      It’s nice to finally have the car where I want it. There are still little things here and there I want to do and will post them on here, but for now I can just enjoy driving/racing it. I’ve also gotten pretty deep into Sim Racing over the winter/spring and for now that is taking up most of my free time/toy funds these days. There’s always something.


      Great read AngryGiraffe !! Keep it coming !

      Good luck with all your racing and the car upgrades !

      Thanks man! I really like the look of them so far. Why didn't you just get the ultras and space them? Im not a big fan of spacers, but the 2mm ones I run up front are super small. It's not ideal but it works and nothing rubs. Also what OZ wheels did you end up getting?

      Yeah last I had checked they were no longer making the UB. I probably would have gotten that one instead. On the other hand TyrolSport is easier to install and taking it out to put stuff in the hatch only takes a minute or two.

      Definitely not a simple bolt on. It's been a while since I did the install, but I remember having to to file/mod the the mounting tabs and also having to shape/fix the lower curved area. Also the fiberglass was full of pinholes and imperfections. So there was a few rounds of priming, blocking, and repriming before I could paint it.

      A few weeks ago I did my 75k mile service. Well actually I did what was left of my 75k service. Over the last year and a half I have been slowly doing the bigger items of it like the haldex service. So at this point all that was really left was a cabin filter, oil change, and some other minor items. One of those minor items was the rear wiper blade. I have always hated the blade on the rear arm of our cars. It's the old metal style blade holder and the blade is stiff and never fully cleans the rear window. I also don't like the look of the arm and hate that no matter what the arm sags. The bolt is tight and I've even tried to remove it and set it higher, but it always end up miss aligned. Here is a picture of the old wiper arm and how it used to sit



      I ended up finding a seller in Europe on eBay who had a rear wiper off an 8v A3 so I bought the wiper arm and cap from him. I also got a Bosch Euro rear wiper blade for it as well. here is a picture of how it looks now.



      I like the look of the 8V wiper better and since it is able to curve it actually cleans the back glass pretty good.

      Let me know if you guys want some part numbers and I will post them here. Also the washer jet from the 8P rear arm work with the arm off the 8V. That's about it for car right now. Winter has already shown its face here in Colorado so it looks like the only laps I will be doing will have to be at home on my racing simulator.

      Looks great! Thanks for posting about it. Part numbers would be great. So even the current production e-Tron sportback in US has the older wiper arm? As for the blade, it's only available from European sources?

      Would love part numbers, this is definitely a mod I'd want to do!
