Curious. He can't get OEM sizes or can't get any PSS inventory? There was stock in Vancouver when I inquired last week.

Eager to hear whether the rears will rub or not. They are supposed to hve a more square profile compared to the PS2. When I first modded the car, I had to take a pair of PZero 295/30/19's off in order to prevent rubbing over bumps.

If any of you are in the market for an Audi or have one ordered through Southhgate Audi, make sure to instruct them to not wash it....... I was there on the weekend and noticed that they have an automatic car wash at the dealer with brushes.

Nothing like ruining a new car before it is even delivered!

No I am not but my Nephew (who you met at our meet last summer) is Audi crazy. I took my brother and Nephew to Southgate Audi because it is a brand new dealer and we wanted to have a look at it. They have lots of stock and even had 2 R8 V10 coupes and 1 R8 V10 Spyder in the showroom but once I saw the automatic car wash with the brushes I felt sick. I had the frightening picture in my mind of one of the lot kids running one of those beautiful R8's through that wash of death and destroying it.

Seems logical to me.
Won't be any FI spoiling that beautiful NA gem under my hood!!! I am pretty sure the car will get a stroker in the future when the car is out of warranty. I would probably do the install myself and save a pile of money........ Dinan quotes 40 hrs labour to install it and that is what the dealers go by...... 40 x ~$200 hr = ~$8000

It was a pretty decent show...I haven't been in a few years so it was nice to see the updated facility and the manufacturers displays. There was a nice handful of exotics (McLaren SLR, Murcielago roadster in matte wrap, Gallardo LP570-4, V10 R8, LF-A, Aston Martin Rapide/DBS). Also a good selection of other rare-ish sports/luxury cars (2012 MB CLS63 in matte paint, MB SLS, Jag XK-R, Bentley GT, CTS-V coupe, BMW 1M etc.)

All said, it was a good time, worth the 15 bucks...though I may skip a year or two again.

PS - I looked everywhere, but there was no Porsche display...kinda a bummer as that is likely the next step in my auto-evolution.

I bet the sound must be intoxicating! How does this sound compared to an Akra Slip on? The mod bug has hit me even before I have the car! lol

I am looking forward to seeing Jamie's M3 on June 12! On that note, anyone heading there to get out the show and shine?

Ok 40 hrs is a rip off

I'd negotiate that for sure down to 30 or so. Its done in less than a week so 40 hrs is prob 8 hours a least to high.

Don't buy it in Edm thats for sure,lol. Rip off City of Champions.

The roads are absolute crap! Edmonton City council should be flogged in public letting the streets turn to goat trails!
I have vented. Now I feel better.

1 km either side of the Quesnell construction is a wheel alignment shop's dream road. Feel like I am dodging buried landmines in Afghanistan or something.
