well i made my first order to ECS for purchases/ repairs.

i had a fluttering diverter valve, so purchased the APR R1 to replace that.

While i was at it, i wanted to rid of those old style bolt down coils, and go with the Red Top R8 coils/coil plate adapter. cleaning the valve cover, and changing the valve cover gasket (which had been bad for who knows how long..........)

Also after a fiasco of chasing down the proper wheel hub/ axle combo i needed (they changed it all mid '01 model year) i received a half shaft that was incorrectly put together... {thanks ECS... -_-) well with a little elbow grease, and axle grease, it was put together and installed properly! the car ran good... just in time for the trip to Topeka on saturday!

she ran like a champ there and back, only issue being, (after numerous pulls of 90+MPH) the old 142k mile flex pipe decided it was calling it quits, leaving my car sounding like a diesel truck.. -_- very annoying.
no muffler shop will touch it, so im ordering a new downpipe entirely. screw it. im going ebay, because im a poor audi owner, poor because i own an audi, they seem to go hand in hand. or the fact that the forums say these down pipes actually fit very well!

so i was beginning to think positively about the TT, then i went to get some tires put on my car to replace the one that was torn up from riding on a bad wheel bearing, i found out that i have 2 bent wheels... dammit.

searching for cheap ECS options on wheels for the meantime...
id like to end up on rotiforms, or 3SDM wheels at some point long down the road.
