EDIT:

I just went to get an estimate to have my hood refinished (there is a tiny little paint chip on it where it looks like the previous owner closed the hood on a wrench, or something, which made the paint crack and spread a little bit) and my trunk refinished (previous owner used some glue for the Audi rings which has sunk into the paint and I have yet to get it off (I have yet to find a store that sells the 3M Adhesive Remover wheel), so I was going to see if they could just sand down the area where the rings were and repaint it because I really don't want to put the rings back on. Anyways, I realize this is a dealership and they do ****ing excellent work, I know from experience, but they wanted $3,500 for the hood because they'd also have to paint the front bumper (chipped to ****, but I've learned to live with it...it's a 10 year old car), fenders, and doors. Then they wanted another $1,000 for the trunk. I'm like "Yeah, I'll just go spend $4,500 to have my whole car painted any color I want. Thanks anyways" and left. $4,500 to fix a couple cosmetic blemishes? I realize it'll look a hell of a lot better than a little "Mom and Pop" shop, but that's ****ing ridiculous...
god damn. either that's rape and a half, or my friend has quoted me some REALLY good discounts. I'm going with rape and a half.

Lolol, I'll order it today, don't worry.

Although, according to the guy that did my estimate, the glue has bonded into the paint, so it needs to be shaved down. There's a little ramp-like "texture" in the paint all around the outside of the glue. If I had to guess, the previous owner had the trunk resprayed, but the guy just taped around the rings, rather than taking them off.

Glad he can provide a molecular level adhesive analysis during a free estimate.

Taking a break from removing rear right hub/bearing. Having trouble, once again, getting the inner race of the bearing off. M3 if you have any tips, I'd be much appreciative.

Been chiseling the **** away at it with hammer and chisel, I'll see if I can get a ride to get a pry bar like that. The rest of it has been super easy.

you'll need two of them. all you do with the air chisel is put it behind the inner race and let the vibrations walk it out, sort of prying as the chisel gets in between it and the stub axle. once you have enough room you throw a couple prybars behind it and pry, using the dust plate bolts for the pivot point so as not to destroy the shield

Well, got one Samco hose in the car. Started absolutely pouring rain, so I quickly got everything out of the way and shut the hood. The Y-Pipe is not bolted down and the other Y-Pipe > Intercooler hose is loose.

Now my car is stucked in the driveway Thought I'd be able to catch a little sun while working on the car, but I guess not.

Sounds familiar, mine is stuck on stands in my garage now. The inner race won't budge, gonna be a good excuse to get an angle grinder though.

I got them done, only took about 10 minutes, so I just waited until the weather cleared again. I didn't even attempt the bipass valve hoses, though. When I loosened the clamps on them I couldn't even get the stock, rubber, flexible hoses to budge.

Oh well, you can barely see them anyways.

Amazing pickup. Only reason I would ever avoid an RS6 is the maintenance costs. Get a transmission and ECU tune. That thing will really haul then.

Stoptech's are on their way. Next up, coilovers, sway, and pulley (this will be bought the second APR gives me the thumbs up).
