Haha, that's fair. I can't imagine that's a fun job on a AWD audi. I know the TDI guys do it, although those don't really make enough power to destroy anything. My old boss has a Jetta TDI station wagon. It had ~320K on it the last time I worked on it and was starting to need a new clutch (still the original). Half the electronics are dead and it's leaking oil from every place oil can leak from but still going. It's no secret that I'm not a fan of German cars but that one is actually a pretty cool little car. Had I done the work I probably would have done the same thing, SMF conversion.

I like the little TDIs. The new ones make gobs of torque. More torque than my 3.0! The 2.0T has tractor like torque too for a little i4 gas motor.



The germans are great at egnineering and overengineering. Should it take me 30+ minutes to change a light bulb? No. But it does only take a couple hours to do a set of shocks which is awesome! Its got its pluses and minuses. I completely forget about anything difficult to work on when I get to hammer down a nice twisty road.

finally drove my HB to work... it has been a long time coming. i grabbed a screw driver and electrical tape, crossed my fingers and tried really hard not to listen to all the different sounds. at one point i let off the gas pedal not knowing i let it out so much and thats when my heart skipped a beat..wooshee no problem, SHIOT!! the AC is smoking! i turned it off, it was just that humid out and the AC was that cold. im building my confidence with the truck still. i made it to work (30mins @ 70ish MPH, 3200 rpms)

Wanted to mention something else. I've decided to give the guys who lower their trucks a break. No more teasing them. Okay...there is lowering and there is raising. Some folks do this, or do that. I guess either is okay and I was kind of tough on people about that. My apologies.

IN member SBJ mailed me a set of Nissan-branded mud flaps. Like new. I cleaned them up further with alcohol and installed them on the rears.

the white one i got from nengun, and the black leather one i got from a guy in lithuania. it’s not a real nismo, but it’s real leather and the little logo is spot on. the real ones that i’ve seen are $400+ nib or like $250-350 used and they’re crusty as fuck. i can’t justify paying $400 for a nib one just to daily so this ones perfect. it was still $90 but it’s made very well, so i’m happy.

Are they weighted? In the Audi world weighted shift knobs are the rage.
