I'm shopping around for an AWD TT roadster. Even though I drive around the
speed limit around town (but usually at the top end of the traffic flow on
the highway), I expect that the car will be a cop magnet (especially if I
find a red TT instead of a silver one). Thus, I will most likely install a
radar detector. I would like it to be a discreet install. Does anyone have
experience with remote radar installations that they could share?
Since I live in the northeast, the car will get some winter (i.e. snow use).
Has anyone tried the TT with/without winter tires? What has been your
Thanks in advance.
Don't know about the radar detector issue either, but if you're buying more
tires, you should consider one of those spray protectants that makes them
look shiny and wet...
Hope this helps.......LOL

I'm assuming that you are in the US. I always advise getting winter
tires on steel wheels. It saves your nice wheels from winter grime
and salt, and the traction benefit can keep you out of an accident.
Summer tires get hard around 40 degrees F and lose lots of traction
even on dry roads. I had to drive my S4 home from the dealership in
snow with summer tires on...very unfun. Remember, 4 x 0 = 0. Zero
traction is bad...
