I doubt you'll get any meaningful cooling with a duct diameter that small. Speaking if ducts, where are yours? If you don't route ducts that connect to special backing plates, you won't be...

If you have yellow headlights, you have to use clear corner lights. Otherwise there are just too many colors that don't match or compliment each other at all. Orange and yellow together is no bueno.

Yeah, I maintain that if you want reliable transportation, stay far away from any Audi/VW product that is more than three years old.

The suspension will have the same configuration, but the spring rates will be different due to the weight discrepancy between the 4 and 6 cylinder engines. Same goes for the sway bars.

My friend installed Vogtland/Koni setup on his E34 and it was pretty nice. The springs seemed just as good of quality as any other spring out there. Definitely had a sporting ride.

I'm sure the 2L gets better mileage than 20mpg. My 2.8L is currently getting 23mpg in mixed driving. Usually gets around 32-33mpg on the highway.

We didn't receive the 2L engine in the US, but there is no way the 2.8L will get the same economy. It has 40% more displacement, more power, etc.
