    More about the door-kicking incident pls.

    Also, I'm confused, are you still an L-plater? (your signature says you are anyway).
    Haven't got around to the sig change yet.
    Kinda forgot about that one
    I'll get more pics on the door, polished out the tyre marks on the bumper though.

    So yeah, Washed her yesterday then MIJ decided to try something different so we attacked the bonnet with buckets of water.


    Also, some interior shots.


    My favourite bit of the interior, red instrument lighting.


    and of course, the saggy headliner supported by the previous owners staples.

        This one may have been alittle high, about 256,### when I got it.
        Also, went out for alittle cruise last night, I still haven't found the rev limiter (It was only in first, so no speeding involved.) I think it's just around 7k though (I don't drive like this, that was a one off.)

          Nice pics. If you want to destroy that engine keep searching for that redline lol. B5 2.0's redline around 7,200 rpm. I hope the engine wasnt cold when you went and tested it either...

            Nope, oil was warm (Just around 100º by memory) so I thought I'd try (Never ever full throttle a cold engine.)
            Probably explains why I couldn't find it, backed off just under 7.

                    Ah well if it was warm thats ok. They do redline fairly high though. One of Audi's highest reving engines actually behind the 4.2 FSI and another. And you do have to rev them to get them moving lol.

                      Ok
                      Later.
                      Oh wait,
                      I have one lingering around somewhere.




                      Thar's the engine bay.


                      Still don't know what the plug ontop of the airbox is for, but it's near a (I'm assuming) vacuum line that's also open

                        Also, some interior shots.

                        That is a cool water shot, and a nice interior. Fluffy dice = 15 HP.


                        Looks good mate

                        But the question is, have you gone too the Maccas drivethrough yet?



                        Also it's FWD isn't it? It has always confused me when FWD cars have the engine laid out in a RWD manner. Do you have a diagram on this layout?

                          KIDDING! Nice little car, have you had a go at testing the handling? Is it alright even though it's FWD? Also really like this colour red on this model of A4

                          It doesn't matter what kind of car you have, If you've put in the work, time, and money you deserve a little respect.

                            MIJ took the shot, I was assigned to throw a bucket at the car. (Only it's contents)

                            Maccas, heaps on my L's but not a fan of it so not yet on my P's, thought the loose change menu is still there. One Achievement I have yet to fulfill is reverse through a drive through, though thinking about it it might not work.

                            It grips, aslong as the roads are dry (Tyres are nearly gone)
                            Though, it will under steer if keep on the throttle, brakes either work or they don't (Something Audi did, you'd have to push real hard to stop quickly). Only thing is that the springs in it have a real shitty spring rate so it has massive body roll.

                                Ok, sounds decent. I'm sure TIIDA can point in the right direction for some suitable springs
