Re: Uncomfortable Drivers Seat

Others have commented on the uncomfortable nature of the driver's seat. I have a 2012, but I believe the seats are similar in later models. The perception, or reality, that the seats are overly stiff...

Re: Alert: Module Software Updates for 2012

Yes, I also noticed the engine is super quiet at idle. I once forgot to turn it off, but fortunately it was in Park.

Re: 0-60 time with these settings

That's not normal. You should be able to get sub 5 secs in Auto mode without even trying.

Re: Red or Black stripes

Re: Warning to all getting their Wk2 exhaust done

Re: What caused damage to my front tires inner edges only

It looks like your alignment went off at some point. 32000 miles on these tires is excellent, so you probably won't get any sympathy from your dealer or Pirelli. Driving on the cords can be dangerous...

Re: Almost GO TIME...Ripp supercharger inhand and ready for install
