This is what Audi should have done in first place.
Bought the tmc Motorsport upgrade and it works plug and play

Re: Sticky for pics/vids RS6 C5

I had the dectane ones I did not like them for the same reason.
I believe these are inpro ones and the angle is much better and the blinkers are normal bulbs.

Re: american gearboxes

Mine is also still doing good after 20.000km.

So for now the boxes they build at 517 are good but they way they do business is horrible.

Re: ''BUYER BEWARE: SAM at 517Trans''

What Doug told me was that they installed a 517 box and something went wrong with the box and 517 blamed doug that he did not flush the box cooler. Before installing the 517 box and that was the reason the box did something wrong. But Doug also said that they checked oil of the old box that came out...

Re: ''BUYER BEWARE: SAM at 517Trans''

No document or anything just a invoice. I think it says something regarding warranty on the invoice but that's it. I also talked to Doug after the install and he had nothing good to say of 517, he had a lot of trouble with one of their boxes from one of their customers. And 517 blamed MRC of the tro...

Re: ''BUYER BEWARE: SAM at 517Trans''

Hi, this is my experience with Sam and 517trans right now. I ordered a full upgrade to my rs6 box with Sam and during the selling part Sam was very helpfull and friendly. He responded to emails within a day and was friendly on the phone. He promised me that he would rebuild my box within 4 days. So ...

Re: Standard S8 wheels ok?

Driving on 20" isn't all that hard it all depends on which tires you use.
I have Michelin ps2 in 265-30-20 and the ride is fine even better than my 255-40-18 winter tires.

Re: Rebuilt gearbox flare issue

The excuse is that it is just not finished but I will be ready Friday and if I call on Friday I get the same answer again. Last time I called was last Friday and then they told me the gearbox was ready and they would start at the valve block on Monday. So I will call him again first week of January ...

Re: Rebuilt gearbox flare issue

I realized that by now but I am glad I did not send my current gearbox.

Re: Rebuilt gearbox flare issue

I have exactly the same problem and it will get worse and worse. Eventually it will also slip in D. That is why I have a gearbox at 517 right now. The sad thing is that they promised to rebuild the gearbox in 4 days and it has been 8 weeks and it is still not finished. I hope I will have it back wit...
