Was able to air out. However car still shook on left turns especially at higher speeds and I got sick of it. Picked up a set of Audi tt control arms and spindles. Luckily mine came with nubs on the control arms that just need to be tapped in order for me to run the sway bar. However I dont think it's necessary, the car handle so well with the new set up. What a difference suspension geometry makes.
Plus I'm lower now.[IMG]https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170829/e17b3b01a165cfedcbfa0d3aba9eb72f.jpg[/IMG


Pressed in new bearings with the harbor freight tool, worked great. New ABS sensors in as well. Car is aligned and functioning as it should. In other news, my reiger rear window spoiler flew off somewhere. I realized after the fact so no idea where it could be.

Will start removing tints next as they're all peeling.

It's been hard finding motivation to do anything to this car.

Freshly painted bmp bumper is on, going to put the old one back on when it snows.

One of the headlights stopped working also. These have been a nightmare since day one. TRS Has been great about everything, but the amount of issues caused by these morimoto parts between my headlights and my friends are just crazy (both built at the same time). Found corrosion in one of the harnesses. Cleaned, reassembled. Now the headlight turns on when I put on the highbeam, it just doesn't make sense.

Also, out a friend's car back to stock. These cars are getting old.

I've been looking for a 3.0t s4/s5. Alphards should be selling this weekend also. Just trying to get my finances in order first.

Snows went on yesterday. Still need to add some airline antifreeze, fix the air leaks, put on the old bumper then it should be set for winter. I think I want to replace the e brake cables as well. Also got some engine oil dye in the mail so I can chase down the oil leaks.
I'm gunna miss these alphards and my sweet figment.

Alphards not sold. The buyer and I found that 3/4 wheels were cracked, 8 cracks total. At this point in thinking of turning them into tables.
