    They called at about 9.50 saying that it's all done and sorted, and doing some apologising again...

    I will have a brief look at it tonight, but won't be able to do much until the morning as I am out tonight.

    I shall be spending a bit of time turning it over to make sure all is well before bolting it down....

    When I had my head sent off they didnt do the timing right, when I got it back both notches didnt even align.

    I didnt take it back to them. They have been in business longer than ive been alive so dont really expect mistakes like that and its such an important part to get wrong. I wonder if they would have paid for my engine if I hadnt checked the timing and everything went bang.

    Hope things run smoother for you know though buddy.

    To be honest, if I had the time I would have liked to have done it. However I have a hectic workload at work currently, a lot going on at home and simply don't have the time.

    I can just about find the time over the weekend to get the engine back together I think, hopefully.

    Don't think that I wasn't disappointed about it, or mad, because I was both believe me. However my nature is to not lets things get me down, and retain a positive outlook!

    Disappointment and anger are two things I normally find are counter productive and not conducive to getting the problem resolved.

    Thats the best way how to handle things I would say. As soon as you start to let things piss you off and get on top of you, thats when you want to give up. Sounds like you have done the best thing for your situation anyway welly. If I was more local I would come and give you a hand.

    At least you have everything you need to put it all back together once you get the head back.

    No, it's been stoned over so is smooth. It's been skimmed once already and I didn't just want to skim for the sake of it.

    OK, well was all back together by about 4 PM today, and all seems good so far...

    All went smoothly, a few odds and sods aside.

    A few photos:











    I went out for a test run, and my new master cylinder caused a few problems.... Like the front brales physically jamming on to the point the car wouldn't move.... Fantastic!

    Anyway, all good now.

    I'll keep you posted on developments.

    OK then, today is the day for MOT.

    Oh goodie.

    Anyway, new MC fitted and has been bled, however the pedal is still not the best which is disappointing to say the least... BUT, the brakes do work so it shouldn't be an issue.

    To be fair, it's not actually as bad a job as anticipated, fiddly but not that difficult.

    I can't believe that when I had the S3 last year, it got MOT'd as normal. She still had a K04 with a stock downpipe and cats. That is crazy frankly, I can't can't believe how many changes have been done in 1 year....

    Looking forward to getting out on the open road....

    I like rapid, rapid is good....

    I'm planning on trading in for the manliest TT I can find.

    To be fair, I do like them ,but it's not just for me. My missus pretty much orgasms every time she sees one. She's been pretty good about me spending next to ALL of both my time and money on Bumble, so I thought I'd have a hunt round for a TT 180 with a knackered engine and sort it.

    Can pick up busted TTs for about £2K

    Good idea mate. Me and Tam were thinking about a track project between us. I was looking at Skoda Octavia VRS for £2k and stripping the fecker.

    This for example:

    Is a lot of car, for not a lot of money.

    And I agree with you completely. I've been there now, I know how much hassle it has been for me, and I don't think I'll be doing it again.

    My brother always told me that if I wanted a faster car, I should buy a faster car. Those words ring in my ears from time to time lol.

    He sounds like a clever bloke.

    I'm all for getting the max out of the standard K04. If I want to go faster I'll buy something faster
