Re: What did you do to your car today? (V50_T5)

Ordered Sweedspeed sticker, evolve bumper stickers, changed the cabin filter and changed the oil!

Re: (crossie)

Sweet Crossie! Just don't ever get a flat tire! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> Let us know how it ends up sounding. I just bought a used OEM sub since I can't lose any more trunk space (I have the AWD with a small enough trunk as it is) and need to keep a spare tire. Once again, nice job!

Re: (crossie)

I don't actually have it installed yet, it should be here the middle of this coming week. I was just wanting to balance out the sound a little better since the premium sound package is nice but if you turn it up past a certain point it gets kind of washed out, I am hoping the OEM sub can help with this, as I was told by a guy who has it in his car that it really does help the sound out. I will definitely post my thoughts on it once I get it installed.<br>And while we have Volvos, I still live in a place where some of the roads are very crappy, and I have some expensive wheels, so I don't want to get a flat and then have to drive on it and chance ruining the wheels, since they aren't sold for our bolt pattern anymore. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Keep us posted on the sub setup, it is very cool so far!

Re: (carreragt7)

I almost died a few times in my s40.... Snow storm and 2 inches of snow on road, ran through 2 stop signs and slid around quite a bit! Wish I could have gotten my hands on an AWD t5...=/

Re: (Kallvin22)

2 inches?! LOL, that is one thing that scared me when I lived in WA, any snow whatsoever and driving was dangerous because most people there don't know how to drive very well in the snow. But the AWD would definitely help! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><br> During Christmas break I drove on a highway with about 6 inches of snow. It sucked but wasn't as bad as I thought it was. But I am used to driving in snow as I grew up in it and currently live in Utah. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">

Hahah, you guys. Try a RWD v8 in about 10-12 inches of snow <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Now that I've got AWD, I actually look forward to the bad weather, hahah.

Re: (sanatarium)

LOL. I had a guy go off on me for probably 5 minutes about how nice my car was and how Audis are great cars, and how there isn't a lot of them here in the west. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> I couldn't bring myself to tell him it wasn't an Audi and just listened to him.
