I had a similar squeaky noise in my front end when I made left turns. There are apparently brake shims on the 6 that are prone to breaking, and if they do, they cause the front end to squeak. That was my problem anyway, a quick fix by the dealership and I haven't heard the squeaking since.

What does the flash do? My 04 6i needed it too, but I can't tell a difference... :huh:

are you talking about the airbox mod? If so, I wouldn't bother putting it back in. I had the reflash done a couple months ago on my 6s Hatch with the airbox mod. Chances are, they won't be able to tell the difference.

I got an appointment for the 17th (only Saturday time open for a few weeks) to get my car reflashed because of a delay in the accleration. This is probably a newbie question, but is the ECU, TCP, and PCM reflash the same thing or are the different reflashes? I've heard all three terms on the board. If they are different reflashes, will the dealership do them all or just the one relating to the delay in accleration? Thanks! :)

What else are you having done? I just got my 6 a couple of weeks ago and I was wondering if I should get anything looked at while my car is at the dealership.

I have an 04 V6 ATX and I also noticed the delay in acceleration. It turns out I had a faulty throttle body and I had to get it replaced after only 7000 km. Maybe some of the other throttle bodies were faulty on the 04 models. I brought mine in for the flash updates and they discovered the problem with the TB.

brake noise in the front end, replacing the shims

a couple of other stuff i wrote down
