    This is a FYI -- since we share common components to our sister car the A4 I thought this would be of some interest... capitalaudi.com is organizing a GB on a stage III clutch kit manufactured by southbendclutch.com for $376.00 shipped...

    I just got my car back, and the p/n for the three new CPs I got ends in L...that's 2 generations after the J! Man, they must have had serious issues that they still couldn't work out for a LONG time. Now, the question is, what of the J CP in my car from the first H that blew? Here's the new...

    I am hearing this when I stop (like at a stop sign) and then accelerate, one knock at each action. I have also heard it when going down my steep driveway and turning to the left as I brake to enter the street. Is this a CV joint, tie rod, or what, potentially? I am lowered (HR springs) with a...
