    Don't forget to wrap with a quality PPF to protect against UV. There are UV sealants like OptiLens but it doesn't last so PPF is the best way to go since it is UV + abrasion. Well worth the...

    I love sharing it with people, you are in South Orange County, is that correct? I am in SD.

    Yes, I have a few wagons currently. When I got into the fender bender with the white one a while ago...

    My plate got rejected.

    Explanation: Twin Turbo Wagon

    I assume DMV thought it was Titty Wagon

    I am hunched over just looking at that sloping rear roof line but love how the headlights and taillights are coming together. It would serve Audi well if they put more emphasis on the wheel arches...

    Congrats Tony, nice power and nice useable torque down low. Looks like a lot of fun.

    Yew!

    Feel free to remove the "1,200+" from the title to avoid confusion, no need for crank HP around here.

    Same goes for the fender badge (IMO), walk softly and carry a big stick is more fun no?

    I don't care for the angular fender design, round looks much better IMO especially in the front.

    Reminds me of a Pontiac Aztec.
  9. N54: If you plan to use RWD as a long term then I...

    If you plan to use RWD as a long term then I suggest executing a proper conversion by removing the TC and swapping transmissions. Even with my wagon setup like your 335xi I had some parasitic...

    Love some high HP xi cars. My buddies 6466 xi was probably right around that level at 26psi.

    In terms of drivetrain upgrades I wouldn't be surprised if retrofitting X5M front drivetrain is...

    Install Error: Noticed the silicone elbow on my IC getting rubbed by a mounting tab on the subframe. There wasn't a hole but silicone was compromised so it was replaced. If it continues with engine...

    When pulling my shifter I noticed the PVC insert I made to firm up the shifter arm bushing had slid forward and out of position....

    I would put my wagon in reverse off the line to get that sound away from me as fast as possible, which would be winning in my book. lol

    Funny thing is these truck engines sound surprisingly...

    I recall having this conversation before, maybe more than once. lol

    It doesn't look like AKG offers one for the E6X, go figure.

    What broke on your UUC shifters?

    After resolving some previous DSC codes (thanks to Levan) I had another pop up after a short drive, presumably it was suppressed by the previous codes but this code was related to my clutch pedal...

    Yea, I am actually surprised how well it hooks up considering the "respectable" power/torque I am making, the added weight of the E61 is being put to good use. !st gear is limited to 18psi and 2nd...

    Thanks, it is!


    Yea, not ideal gearing for setting 60-130mph times or winning races but as you said, not the priority. I will keep my eyes out for a good deal on a E9X M3 DCT LSD. Same unit...
  20. N54: Just happy my wagon is back on the road with the new engine, trans, and drivetrain. Here are some WOT videos of celebration.

    Here are a few clips I have which are a decent representation of the wagons current state.

    I run Forgestar F14 SDCs I agree they are a good value when you consider the price, looks, and weight. However I don't fully agree about "quality" in other words -strength. I have been through a...

    900 crank but is lucky to put down 500whp with those rubber band tires.

    It is best to own one of these so you can be INSIDE the cabin and NOT hear the fart-blender noise everyone is exposed to outside. Holy cow. No wonder BMW went through the hassle of synthetic...
