Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Oh I didn't know that. You learn something new every day it seems :) 

Rumor has it they wanted to put a diesel in there but while it would physically fit, due to the shape of the engine bay it would have to be removed from the vehicle for pretty much any basic services beyond oil changes and they quickly realized that this would be a nightmare for dealers and owners and create a vehicle that would rack up insane charges under warranty and then leave owners horribly upset after warranty, so thankfully they nixed it. Ford however, never caught on to that idea (Navistar Diesel and the DPS6 trans prove this point).

that feeling when the body shop rushes you to get your car in and says they want to get it in and out and not have it sit.... then proceed to sit on it a week without touching it.

 

.... its infuriating.... cause i had plans that day and they said if i didnt get it that day and around that time then they couldnt do it for a few weeks.... so i scrambled to get a towtruck which is A DAYUM 2 HOUR MIN WAIT CAUSE FOR SOME REASON MYRTLE BEACH SUCKS...MEANWHILE MY MECHANIC HAS LIKE 12K WORTH OF PARTS JUST TAKING UP HIS SPACE WAITING ON THIS CAR TO SHOW UP..... ok im venting

Not exactly, no... Maybe to the rich british cucks who can't afford nice weather up there lmao

Ngl, I was expecting the F1s to be quieter than they actually are. Still, the Revolution cars that were also racing with a Ford V6 still sounded better.

Tomorrow will be the coldest day I've driven the Celica with the Dunlop Z3 tires, a frigid high of 57F, however I'm driving her to the train station (like 2 miles) in the morning when it'll be about 30F. Technically I don't think I'm supposed to drive on them below 32F but I had my old Z2's out a few times in very low temps and other than being able to spin them easily until they warmed up nothing bad happened.

I wish for a hydraulic car lift for christmas.... That would be sweet.

 

Getting there... been a problematic journey to get the car approved. Just one final brake hose left to change now and the car should be good for approval.

Eh, gf isn't feeling well (has a cold, not the covid) so plans cancelled for today. I might go for a spin later maybe.

 

Last night I fixed my r/f side marker LED bulb that had been on the fritz for a few years, the solder joints from the bulb legs to the bulb had broken. I managed to solder them back onto the tiny circuit board, pop the bulb back together, and then have it fall out of the socket into the housing as I tried to reinstall it. Took like 20 minutes to fish it back out, but it's bright as ever now and should keep working for a long time. First caught it wasn't working from a Killboy photo from the dragon a couple years ago which I didn't notice it not working in until this year while I was lamenting no dragon trip this year. Ran the bulb for a couple hours and no failure so I bought some replacements which aren't quite as bright or good, fixed this one, put the replacements I bought in her 16 Escape side markers so they're bright AF and I'll swap the other spare pair into her lower parking lights.

My project truck has been in the chassis shop all summer... All I wanted done was to have the suspension seats installed, firewall sealed, headers coated and air intake fabricated. Its almost as if he wants me to get mad at him and come get the truck. Where I just want him to do what he says he can do (you going to talk the walk you better be able to walk the talk) This project has been the bane of my existence since 2013. I want it done so I can be free of it!

Quote

It happened at Markham Rd in the Westbound express lanes. I was in the collectors and saw it happen just ahead of me. There was a white SUV travelling at a high rate of speed in the express. I watched it pass a sedan on the right shoulder, then continue ahead and attempt to pass a dump truck, again on the right shoulder. Before the driver could overtake the truck, it seemed to clip something and lose control causing it to to careen out of control into the center divider and flip a few times. It was a very brutal collision, and the driver of that SUV sadly passed away according to the OPP.

Anyone here would know how to revert the ACC in my dads ‘14 A6 to normal cruise control? Bit of an odd thing to do so no wonder I can’t find much about it? 

 

i would think it could be done in VCDS if you tell all the modules that normal CC is installed rather than automatic. 
 

The camera behind his rear view mirror isn’t working, on top of that he’d prob have to get it recalibrated after and it’s expensive on that car. So what he’d rather do is just go back to normal CC and then fix that whenever he goes to get rid of the car (if it’s worth doing then). Kinda annoying the car doesn’t revert back to normal CC if the ACC isn’t working anyway? 
 

I tried a few things today but I didn’t get it to work. Changed the “coding” (i had never done this before but apparently it’s just hex numbers that signify different items installed on the diff modules? Kinda neat) in the steering wheel, engine, and the can gateway modules. Still was getting prompted on the dash that ACC was unavailable so I reverted everything.

 

 i wasn’t sure how to get to the module in the software that the camera was connected to. I suspect until I do that and make the car think that camera doesn’t exist, it’ll still say that.

If its not working it likely has a fault and disabled cruise control completely Honda does this and its pretty annoying... had a loaner that I took to training and as soon as I began the 3 hour trip home the dash lit up like a christmas tree and disabled cruise control. So basically if theres a fault, CC wont work.

 

Otherwise there should be an option in the cars settings itself to disable ACC. Thats in a normally functioning system though.

yeah they do that, and also yes it does have a fault. it's for the camera not working behind the mirror. Which normally isn't even included in the car without ACC. 

Which is where i got the idea to just code it out of the car and make the car think it just has normal CC and nothing else, then we can put it back later if he wants to fix, or when he gets rid of the car, or whatever. He didn't buy the car FOR that, just a nice to have really.

I really don't think you could. The system normally works in tandem with other modules and systems. To code it out, you would have to do it to each of those modules as well. I just think if you tried, you would kill CC all together.

 

Have you tried clearing the code to see if it returns instantly? Also looked up part costs for that unit. Thats insane. On a Honda you could buy both the multipurpose camera and radar for less than the price of one of the distance sensors on that audi, and theres 2. I had to replace a rain/light sensor on my car. That was pretty spendy. Nearly 500 dollars.

As always, aftermarket carbon bits never fit quite as easily as you'd hope. So, bumper off to try to get it fitted, came off surprisingly easy.

Few hours and lots of test fitting and re-fitting, everything's back together and looking good.

Pulled the front bumper today to fix the horn, totally forgot to replace the busted front badge. Upgraded the parking lights, hdr mode exaggerates the color a bit.

MT N55 335i. Specifically wanted a manual and got lucky that mine came up at the right time.

 

I've got new brake rotors and pads to go on and a front sway bar and I'm done with modifications. Got a new expansion tank coming now because it's leaking when the cooling system's pressurised.
