Ran When Running.
The Q5 will hold just over 1000 lbs of bricks and still drive ok. Only like a 10 min drive so it was pretty easy. And that diesel torque makes it easy to get up and go even fully loaded.
Autocross times from last weekend. First run was slow and steady. Hopefully my pax time will be more competitive next time. This time around I focused on not hitting stuff.
My valves were gross. You have been warned. Graphic and gross pictures ahead.
Painted the grills black. The were the only chrome in the car, and therefore dumb. Simple and easy, I like it way better.
Make me wish my car was white. Kind of.
That is all
Picked up an Active Autowerke BOV kit off the forum, super handy being back in the states. Install went well, and the terrible sound of the stock diverter valves failing under my tuned boost levels is gone. YAY
I’m sitting at work, weather is perfect for working on the car, and my new AA charge pipe is just sitting in my garage. Sad Panda
Have a Belgian Mal...
And somehow more nervous then either of my deployments.
So I finally moved home to Cincinnati From Germany as part of my separation from the Army. After 8 years in, and 3 years in Germany, This city has changed, seems like mostly in a good way.
I haven’t been on in a while thanks to stupid work being stupid, and lazy me being lazy. But Irregardlessly, I am moving back to Cinci by the end of summer assuming Uncle Sam approves of my new job offer and relinquishes the almighty control over my life that he currently has. I would love to try and insert myself…
I cant find anywhere except an audi dealership to buy a 25 pin connector to plug into the mmi port in the glove box of my Q5.
Seemed like the right thing to do. I put the 135i on it, and I’ll have to add the Q5 TDI later.
Isn’t there. A race track in Luxembourg? Like near the German border? Am I confused?
Do you know where your sobriety is?
My buddy called and said his radiator blew coolant out the cap and now his car sounds like a lawn mower. The coolant in the picture is also almost gold looking.
I literally couldn’t stand the sound of the stock head unit in the 135i so I fixed it. Put in a Sony unit I had from the totalled 328I that has everything I need (2 rca out channels, 7 channel eq, over 35w over 4 channels to the mid and highs, USB and aux I puts and low and high pass filters)
I think I’m going to order a gallon of Redline mt-90 so I can do a trans and diff fluid swap at 50 k miles on the 135i. Also think I should do the oil and plugs as well.
