That's so that they are seen when they do right turns at a red light

Don't worry, we don't like them either lol, I personally paint matched mine. There's a few who will come in here talking about how it's against the law, but if you need an orange reflector to spot my car that has LED headlights on them, then I think we have a bigger problem.

You could replace the reflector with wheel glow

Thats exactly my thought. The headlight is literally 1 inch above it. Cant see how that reflector makes any difference at all.

I've got a couple of air sick bags and magazines in the rear seat pockets on my wagon so I designed this fake safety card after the Lufthansa one. I'm going to get a couple printed, laminated then stick them back there as a joke. I had something similar on my Subaru wagon. I'm pretty sure if I could afford the Audi RS6 Avant this would be must have as well.

oh and feel free to correct my German, I had to use google tanslate.

Something like this already exists hier... with the file available for everyone to customise

I have one too double-sided, with emergency instructions etc.

Really? I had no idea. Does it have a special name? Google had nothing relevant.

Standard clutch starts to go as you add power. When I went Stage 1 with the BM3 tune, it was fine. Once I added the downpipe and the Stage 2 tune the clutch started slipping. The power is a little much for the stock clutch. 550i clutch should be good for 500+hp. If you want to go beyond that then you'll want to look into the Clutchmasters options.
