Another Eibach/Turbogas Report

Hi all,

Just got my car back from Eddie at Wolfsport after he installed Eibach
springs along with the Boge Turbogas struts and I must say I like the feel.
 Rather than being too stiff (this is my long range cruiser after all), the
ride actually smoothed out and the car wants to cruise at 75-80 MPH now.
The harshness when I used to hit bumps and the weird oscillations I felt
going over certain freeway segments is gone as well, probably because my
old RF strut cartridge was completely "blown".

Eddie says my A8 wheels are the wrong offset, but they still don't rub in
back, even though I can't get my baby finger in between the tire and the
fender anymore.  Have to give it a try with some passengers in the rear.

After driving my CGT and 4kq all week, and then driving the 5kcstq reminded
me why I bought a turbo in the first place :-P
