    Sparkly... thanks bud.

    The guys at Thorne are dicks. Every time I phone them they are so difficult to talk to and it's as if they try their hardest to wind me up and be rude. So that place is the LAST resort.

    I've got a replacement headlight (facelift model) and the bonnet release cable and a few other odds & sods sorted, just got to wait for them to be delivered. The guy in Cleethorpes where I got my boot from is away till Wednesday, so I've got to wait till then to go rape his car of bits!

    In the meantime, I'm cruising around in a friend's Pug 106 oil burner. One good thing... the petrol gauge on it hasn't budged since Tuesday evening! Then Rach goes away on Monday for 5 days, so I'll be able to use her TT to get to work...

    Should have everything sorted by the end of next week, fingers crossed.

    Thanks Sarah.

    Headlights were a bit of an experiment. I don't think they turned out not too bad. Cool Did the fog-lights too with the left-overs... The bra makes opening the bonnet a bitch though as it covers the release handle!

    Just need to get a slight niggle sorted as I've got a leaking air-hose somewhere that makes it stall when coming to a stop. Think it might require some silicone hoses going in!

    Looking sweet Gee, loving it with the bra on and glad you've ditched the roof rack set up. I don't know how I missed it, but I didn't even realise the old girl had set on fire?!?

    Nope, in my eyes your A4 is a blast back to the 90's Super Touring Car days, which I loved and they sure as sh*t didn't rock a roof rack! Frank Biela did however rock in his 4x4.

    The A4 now has a freshly built full cat-back Powerflow system as of yesterday.

    It's a single box system, 2.25" straight through. It's not that loud, but gives a nice deep sound.

    The chaps at Powerflow in Marlet Rasen are a great couple of guys. John Parradine is the builder / designer of the Parradine 525s (which happened to be sat in the corner of his workshop)... it's powered by a brand new (and fully reuilt from the ground up by himself) 4.6 Mustang/Cobra V8 with a sodding great supercharger hanging off it. 0-60 in 3 seconds... which is no surprise as it pushes out a FUKK!N MASSIVE 1100bhp!!! That's the same as a Bugatti Veyron!

    It's not the prettiest of cars, but the engineering in it is mind-boggling.

    Anyway... the A4 sounds a bit nice now!
