250+ mph... impressive.
Yeah. Gives new meaning to the old phrase, "Passing cars like they were standing still!" :cool:

PS: Found it:
We left San Pedro late one night
The moon and the stars was shinin' bright
Everything went fine up the Grapevine Hill
We was passing cars like they was standing still

Junkyard tear-down & failure analysis of an EAA 888 1.8 TSI:


Am I the only one who thinks that having the cam bearing caps integral with the valve cover is not a great way to do things?

No, I agree it seems a bad move.

I'm pretty sure we could make a really long list of stuff they've done that's WAY dumber than that :D

I mean, it's not a problem if you don't have to fix it....:thumbs: Oh yeah..:facepalm:

No, you are certainly not!;) Unfortunately, these engines (Audi included) appear to be "throw aways" ; a one-and-done . Really sad.

Conceptually very cool, but seven computer-controlled clutches do not a "manual transmission" make.

What happens if you're in manual mode and don't bother with pressing the clutch for gear changes? Would
