    Yeah, just don't want to pull over again to check it if the light comes on when I'm going up Tambo.
    Damn leak's annoying, still haven't found it...

    Should I just top the coolant up with water or get the proper stuff in

    Bleh,
    Here's a near pointless update.

    I have done...
    Nothing since the last update.


    I did take her for a drive though, up the instrument (Mt. Tamborine)

    Was a good drive, had to bring brothers along but I didn't mind.
    Turns out, with their extra weight the Mountain can still be tackled in 3rd, even the 15% inclines.
    Another thing I discovered, 100km up a mountain uses an eight of a tank while 100km in school runs uses a quarter...
    fecking traffic. They weren't lying with the urban being around 10L/100

    But back to that mountan, twas interesting...
    Discovered when I was on the declines, I'll magically lose all my coolant, till I open up the bonnet where I discover that it magically returns (I still haven't filled it up so it's still below minimum.) But yeah, twas a fun drive once you overtake all the other vehicles that contain tourists...

    Here's the pics aswell, only stopped at one spot as all the rest was packed with those people that don't know what they're doing.







    The wagon also got a good wash today, all that dust from sitting for 2 weeks is finally gone.
    Still gotta get to claybaring it... (Still need to learn how to use proper claybar )

    Not really a fan of the Reigers.
    Infact, not a fan of most Aftermarket body options.

    Just trying to find a OEM one that's intact, leaving it black aswell.

I'm about to get in bed, but tomorrow I'll try to poke around online and see if I can help you find a lip for your front bumper (if you're still looking). Cheers, and keep up the good work!
    Still looking, most wrecked B5 A4's at the wreckers have front damage so the lip's aren't in good shape, or they're just missing in general.

    Definitely keeping this toy for a few more years, might end up going down the turbo route after my P's.

    I've found one brand new lip online just wasn't too keen on shipping.
    Here's the one I found, Wish I lived in America as it'll only set me back under $100 but I live in the Southern Hemisphere, making shipping cost $278, without the actual cost of the lip

    Wasn't talking about scratches, the clearcoat on the left quarter panel is peeling, same for the mirrors

    Does have a few scratches though.


    Gave the 4200k a look, not putting HID in, rather buy an expensive bulb that's good, forgot which one I was looking at now.

    Haven't actually tried, but trying to source an OEM front valence to cover up the hoses under the bumper.

    Might go for some better springs or even coilovers.

    Headlight bulbs are definitely being changed, not going HID though, just something that gives me better visibility.

    Headliner still needs to be done aswell, it's not bothering me that much though.

    Dent can stay there, might see how cheaply I can get the clearcoat problems fixed as the paint under is still good.

    Mechanical wise,
    Clutch will need to be replaced soon
    At the moment, I'm assuming the Thermostat is stuck open as it takes ages to warm up, was good on the track though as I only saw it rise to just over 90 degrees.
    Need a new brake fluid reservoir, will do a fluid flush with that.
    Brake rotors are warped again, will get them machined when I replace the dodgey ABS sensor.
    Think that's about it, I've got an oil leak from the sump though, might look into that.
