    When you have 6 cars to choose from to drive, having it up on the lift for a few days puttering around is no big deal. In fact it is cathartic. :)

    I also don't want the coil overs to get grimy/rusty if I can help it. I also ordered a heavier set of springs for the front, went from 14's to 16's and are moving the 14's to the rear. I like a firmer ride and hopefully this will do it.

    I also added vents to the front wheel liners like the s4 has, the allroads did not come with them. It can only help with air flow and keep intercooler temps down.
    I have noticed that I am getting more boost lower in the rpm ranges in 4th and 5th gears with the new setup. I also found that I more quickly have hit the rev limiter in lower gears.

    You changed spring length or rate?
