Any funny build stories or issues that you overcame to put this car together?
My biggest issue was dealing with the HOA and the neighbors that can’t mind their own. They want me to work with my garage doors shut in 115* weather. At one point they made a claim to the city i was running a business in my garage and they came and inspected it.

Favorite mods.
Turbochargers! Even rockin the Cybernation kit with Guardian e.i., when that was the best option, on the stock A3 with stock everything else was a blast only making 240whp.

Worst previous mod.
Falken RT-615, when they came out they were so overrated and i hated them till i sold them.

Shows or events the car has attended or placed in.
You can see it at Redline Time Attack.
