I love the b7 I'm trying to revive my b5.5 at the moment
This car has been giving me grief over the past several months. This past fall, I had to replace both front control arms, front strut assembly, rear spring, O2 sensor and probably something else I'm forgetting. Now I have to replace the entire front swaybar because one of the brackets that mounts the bar to the subframe broke and the genius engineers decided to weld the bracket around the bar rather than have it loose over the bushing like every other one I've seen. Just a horrible, horrible design as far as repairing it goes because I will most likely have to drop the subframe to remove the bar and get another alignment. I just got it aligned after I did all the other suspension work. I am not loving my wife's car right now, TBH. Lol
