The Viggen is finally back up to par

I haven't done anything to it except flushing all the fluids since I bought the car last March. I(thankfully) have an aftermarket bumper to bumper warranty and had the car in my buddies bay at the Volkswagon dealership(he owns a 450 WHP 2001 S4) getting all the nuisances that have bothered me for a year fixed.

Control arms
NGK Plugs
Poly Bushings
Timing chain
Silicone hoses
tires, balance, trued
Seafoam
Flushed fluids again
New front Viggen rotors and Akebono Ceramic pads all around
Brake flush and replace with royal purple
recharged AC
Pilot sport Tires
Replacement passenger seat backrest motor
Replacement driver a pillar(scuffs in it that pissed me off)

Nothing new, shiny, or fast. Just stuff that should be up to par on a Viggen that was not on my car.

Total came out close to 4 grand. Thankfully for the warranty, I only came up 1k out of pocket for the tires, plugs, royal purple, oil, oil filter, and a-pillar.

Nothing major, but damn do I love getting a plate full of maintainence done. Especially the control arms. Completely fixed the slop in the steering wheel, and with the hoses replaced, the car hauls ass in comparrison to what it was. Methinks I had a nasty boost leak. Breaks are just frigging dandy too.

No point to thread. Just happy for it to be up to par is all.

Did you use seafoam in just the gas tank or did you smoke it out?
