    Make sure you don't try and take something for free from one of the breakers in the yard though! For some reason, they don't seem to like it. scratch

    Of course your return to the UK is present enough for me young Sparkles. homo

    Yea last time i went there i was snooping round a TT for bits and there was a bloke in the shed thing watching everything i was doing! Still got away with a handfull for fuses and trim clips! Haha! Living it up.....

    i hate this damn car right now.

    Aswell as the gearbox problem which i lost 1st 2nd and reverse on the way home from london 2night.There is something wrong with the engine now.Drove to london fine then i moved it from the main road outside of the hotel to there carpark.Open the door and i think to myself that doesnt sound right at all.Jump in it this morning still same problem fine on idle but as soon as you rev is it misfires and makes some strange sounds.Drove home at 60 yes people i drove home on the motorway at 60 until i stopped to get some food.Then i didnt car and drove at 90 all the way home as if its going to blow then its going to blow.So now its sit until i take it to a friends garage tomorrow to rip the engine and box out(which i was doing anyway for the box).Im hoping its something cheap but i can see it not being.Im sooooooooooo pissed of right now Mad Mad

    some pictures from 2day with the new modded bumper

    well this gets worse and worse.After spending way to much money(and i mean way to much) and putting the damn thing back together only to find out iv lost compression on 3 clyinders.Got 0 on 3 of them , 100 on 1 , 165 on another and 190 on the last.

    To say im pissed is a understatement.Got to much money in the car so pointless parting it so on wards and up wards its get fixed. Bigger is always better so its going up to a 2.9 or a 3.0 litre bottom end with some head work.Pissing my of as its costing me way to much and i realy dont have the money to spare right now but it has to be fixed.Now wont leave until end of april now. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

    Im now driving around in a e39 520i which im getting rid of as i hate it.Will be looking to get a a4 tdi avant.

    well iv pulled my finger out to fix this thing now. Took the engine apart the other morning to find 3 metal chucks on top of the pistons and 1 in the intake manifold. So iv gone and ordered all the stuff i need for a full rebuild along with some upgraded parts to make it go faster Very Happy Hopefully my parts should drop in from detriot early in the week depending on customs.Then its a rush to get it back together as i have some shows left and im getting fed up of driving slow.But to be honest ill prob scare myself when i put my foot down for the 1st time as it will have about 150bhp more then before so we will see how this week goes.Pictures to come of the engine rebuild and the parts when the come in. Hopefully this all works as 09 as been a bum bullet year so far.
