Alex.  
   Brad at Soundtrack on Colorado Blvd near I-25 and Hoosters helped me with mine.  I am super impressed with how it sounds and works.  He is the install manager and just a straight up honest guy.

If you want to hear/check out mine system... I go to most of the weekly GTG/Cruises that the vortex guys meet at (Saturdays 8pm Conoco by Pepsi Center).  Otherwise, LMK and we'll figure something out.

Looks hot man. But then, your A6 was hot so I can assume your wife is hot and man, this post got out of control.

Why the 2.8 5speed? More usable gear ratios for your setup?
