Dress Up

Installed the brushed stainless radiator cover and side gap covers from Southern Car Parts. Really good job on the laser cutting and fit.

Will need to drive some more and test the last tricky bit, the initial R to D shift of the day with the fluid still cold. Now I will say the trans feels a bit different and more aggressive, but it's hard to discount the placebo factor.

Ohh awesome. Iím hoping this really is a permanent fix. Really love the car and want it to last at least 10 years. The A8 feels like the weak point of this car.

Did my first differential oil change at 6k. So simple to do. It was a little gray in color but not as bad as some of the pics i've seen

Looks awesome brother, the hood liner inserts add a nice touch and those DRL's are proper Throw on some black bowties and she'll have the absolute perfect look

I stuffed it!

The 1LE is more practical than I thought.

While I was running errands I decided to stop by the hardware store to pick up some grass seed. Two 50lb bags fit in the trunk with ease! First gear traction was marginally improved.

The trunk is actually a decent size...if you can get it in there. I get a couple full size guitar cases in there but it takes some wrangling.

I donít think Iíve seen anyone try the ghost stripe thing on Crush. Iím sure it isnít for everyone, but Iím pleased with the look.

It's interesting for sure. What color are they exactly?

Installed the ZL1 center caps I ordered from Wildhammer. Used some heavy packing tape to pop the old caps off without any issues at all and in less than 5 minutes. Love the look.
