    Osram LEDriving headlights - bulb replacement & warranty

    So the fine print in the Osram LEDriving installation manual says they are a product "without an exchangeable light source" which I assume means, what, that the bulbs and/or drivers are either not end-user replaceable or that they are proprietary parts and only available to their warranty...

    Headlights: Osram LEDriving vs. Ed's Replica HID

    For those who opted for Osram LEDriving headlights, I'm guessing your weren't able to personally back-to-back compare them to Ed's Replicas HIDs in terms of performance (beam pattern, cutoff line, reach, etc.) but did you come across any online discussions that helped you decide on the Osrams...

    DIY - GSW pano roof drain tube end cap removal

    The Problem - Pano roof leaks are pretty common and there are TSBs on repair of cracks in the plastic drain trays in the pano frame and a bad frame-to-body seal due to a poor weld.

    Please check your wiring harness for me...

The two arrows show where the kinked harness contacts both the back side of the left headlight and the front corner of the fuse/relay box. This hasn't resulted in...

    Any leaking GSW pano roofs this winter?

    I'm slightly surprised to not read of any pano roof leaks this winter. Mine did, but only during a 100-year storm of unprecedented rate of rainfall. I'm really wondering if there were leaks that did occur this winter but were not detected because the evidence was somewhat hidden. In my case, a...

    Will Audi withdraw from WEC LMP1 this year?

    The Audi Sport site doesn't raise any question about it, although it does say only 2 rather than 3 LMP1s each will be entered for both Audi and Porsche at Le Mans. I wonder if Audi/VW legal department has pushed Audi Sport for withdrawal from WEC LMP1 this year in light of hostility from...

    I'm trying to identify worn diff bearings in my 02J. The noise is a slight moan and occurs only between 60 to 65 MPH (regardless of gear), under load/acceleration. Dead quiet in coast/decel within that speed range and dead quiet at any other speed under load. Accompanying the noise is a very...
