      My thoughts exactly, starting all the maintenance today! The plan is to get it caught up on everything, then start playing with stuff.

      I always start out with mounts and suspension. Then engine stuff starts!

      Yeah the fiancťe went out and ordered a 2018 Q5. So I decided to take over her 2013 Q5. Summer wheels should be here tomorrow for it. Started a new thread over on Audizine. Apparently there is next to nothing on Fourtitude for Q's lol.

      Yeah tried bringing life to that area along with bronco but it was an uphill battle for sure.

      And like everyone else said, glad to see you saving this car!

      I felt the same way. It was just transportation to the last owner, talk about falling from grace. I canít complain, I got a great deal!

      always love to hear of another 3.2 going through upgrades. i love mine and though iím less about going faster these days, i do like for it to look like itís fast. just this past weekend, i had the resonator delete done. will probably get an intake, and in the very VERY near future, iím buying an s3 bumper.

      I bet it sounds much better without the resonator. I always go for a stock appearance, but everything else race car!

      Today after work I installed the oil separator diaphragm, valve cover gasket, intake gasket and spark plugs. It actually runs good now!

      Reinstalling the junk front bumper literally pained me haha. I need to find a good used one.

      The oil looked like ****, almost like the guy was doing 15k Intervals. So tomorrow Iím doing all the fluids and a belt. Then haldex and DSG services. The list goes on and on. I canít start the fun part until itís back in fighting shape. Lots of maintenance junk still to do.

      Definitely, 12 hard years spent in Los Angeles. I purchased it from the original owner, It was just transportation In his eyes.

      Itís like a dog, I always get mine from the shelter. All my cars come to me beat up, Itís part of the appeal. The more parts that require replacement, the more reason I have for upgrades!

      Just ordered all of my fluids and filters, Including DSG and Haldex. I also ordered engine mounts, and dogbone mounts from 034. My car money for the month is spent, So the fun billet stuff comes next month.
