Deal! With the BBQ out there, I'm in!!Come to KC, we'll share a beer and pat each other on the back.
I think tommyboy is referring to a clear bra which I have. I am definitely a fan as it has saved my cars from chips. As long as you care for it the same as the rest of your car, the clear bra will stay clear and hardly noticeable.Thanks, Tommyboy... but now I'm confused. I thought the Stone Guards ran along the bottom edge of the sides, from wheel well to wheel well.
My dealer said he's never sold or seen the Stone Guard on a car here in Maryland.
So which is it?
Everytime I wash my cars and see the stone chips I just get irate! Knowing my obsessive personality, I would rather live with a little seam here and there instead of chips!CB, TBOOOE is correct. I was reffering to the clear bra that covers your bumper, Hood, Mirrors. I am not a fan of the edge it creates but TBOOE is correct is saves the paint. The stone chips piss me off on my car and the lower part of the front bumper gets sand blasted from highway use over time.
That's great news! I got to drive the '12 my dealer has, but it's not the exact configuration I want. According to my sales guy, he says the Comfort/Auto/Dynamic/Indiv selector is overkill. Auto/Dynamic/Indiv will suit me just fine.BTW, my 2012 S5 pretty much has the same options as yours. I love it! I am not sure about the Sports Differential. I thought that this option will also give you the Drive Assist buttons in the car (Comfort, Auto, Dynamic, Individual) which I love using. Changing to Dynamic definitely changes the character of the car.
strange because Stasis is something offered by Audi and supported by a warranty. I highly doubt Audi would offer the upgrades if it made their vehicles fail prematurely.I talked to the Service Mgr, and talked about the Stasis and other upgrades. He discouraged them... said that if I wanted a 400hp engine, then I should start from the block and build an engine designed to produce 400hp. His opinion is that the engine has not been designed to support that range of HP, and will cause excessive wear on the engine and drive train.
I hear of lots of folks here that do those kinds of mods, and I don't hear of breakdowns, so I'm torn as to that particular kind of upgrade. It would piss me off to know that there are Hyundais out there with more HP than my new S5!
