Kinda getting tired of having problems with my car...is there hope ?

Well i'll start off introducing the reason for my thread:



I know it's much to read, but stick around

Here we go.
The first year and ia had absolutely no problems at all.
I just loved to mod her up and i never thought about wasting money on her.

Well then it all started. I really like to listen to my music loud, i mean really loud.
That has lead to having to listen to another sound, the freakin Vibrations from the door panels !

I can no longer enjoy the music in my car as i used to since every time the bass kicks in, the sound from the panels makes me wanna stop and pull them out.

Well, now that is the least of my issues.

I had the front "Clunk" issue, i tried everything.

I changed the sway bar busshings, nothing,
i changed the sway bar end link, some improvement but not all the way there.
Then i changed the tension strut and VOILA problem solved.

[ Wait for it ]



For 2 freakin weeeeeks !
Now my front outer tie rods are blown, and i get the clunk every time i drive up a sidewalk........ i mean coooome on !

Well at least so far i have been able to locate the problems and fix it myself.

Now to the problem that makes me wanna punch the pedal down and total the car just to get rid of it.

My abs, antispinn, esp/bas light's are on, ALL THE TIME !

I've changed the speed sensors, nothing,
pulled fuse #11, nothing.
Turned the wheel all the way to the left and right, nothing.
Did the acc,on,acc,on (and so on) to see if i get a code, nothing.

It just wont give me a break, and to top it all off.
My fiance is tired of listening to me complaining....

I had a great deal on a Audi a5 and even she loved it, but after all this i just can not give it away. I love it so much and after all of this time it feels like putting my son up for sale....( don't you judge me ! )

So guys (if you even got this far reading ) please tell me that there is hope, pleaaase !

Jeez - I hate sounding like a broken record here - but what size and what weight are those wheels?

Nothing will wear out suspension components faster than oversize heavy wheels.

A predator can't really "fix" electronic issues like the dealer StarScan can. All cars today have complex electronics. The StarScan will diagnose and often fix the issues, without any parts being replaced.

Well actually he just said that it would be $100 to check what it could be not fixing the problem, then i guess that when they find out what it is then the cost will increase...

Actually on the 300C 5.7, the combined weight of the OEM 18" alloy wheel and tire is under 56 lbs.

Your 22"s may bring the weight up to well over 70lbs - standing still. As the car moves, the spinning mass of the wheels increases with speed, putting more stress on suspension, steering and brake components. This wears out the components sooner.
