    I'm back but sadly not in a Audi (don't hate me lol )

    Hi everyone sorry it's been quite some time since I posted, but had so much going on and thought I would post a update and just see overall how everyone is doing,

    Well sadly a few months ago for those who don't know my lovely Audi was written off, a week before I was getting ready for my k04 conversion, I suffered a few cuts and bruises but was ok, but sadly car was written off and only got £400 ffrom insurance which hurt even more, I know I could of fought with insurance company but my heart was broken and I needed a car ASAP due to family commitments

    So after some time I bought a Subaru impreza wrx estate on a w reg 2000 uk car, I know it's not a Audi, but I was getting stupid insurance quotes for about £1600 for any vag group car with a ko4 conversion or s3 power and I just couldnt justify the costs, my scooby only costs me £700 which is crazy!!

    My heart is still with Audi and I'm still at ace cafe on Audi meets but hiding the scooby lol so I thought I update everyone and let u know I'm still here not with a Audi but with my Audi spirit always willi g to help and see how things are pics of my car coming below

    K04's conversions are old news now anyway..

    Not too sure on the Scooby, but 4wd is a winner.

    Sorry Karl if u was in my position u wouldn't either, I don't have a drive or anywhere to store the car, tax was running out and so was the mot and as I said due to my family commitments I had to make a tough decision, that doesn't make me a fool just I bought my family first as always and sadly had to move on,

    Fair play for you getting back on the road (even if it's not in an Aud) I too was in a similar situation after I wrote my 1st S3 off, so can appreciate you needing to get back on the road ASAP.

    £400 back though from the insurance is slightly alarming ....did you have a pretty steep excess and not declare the majority of mods?

    Close mate of mine had a WRX wagon Jap import on a 2000 plate and the abuse he gave it was unreal....very solid cars and great fun when the snow comes lol.....plus I will admit I do love the sound of a boxer angine!

    Lol, the insurance company gave you a right good dry shafting there.

    Places to store cars can be found over the longer term, cars can be dismantled in a day or two.

    Even if the Tax and MOT were low, you could have parked it outside your house, stripped it over a weekend and had the scrappy collect the shell on monday morning and at least you'd have got some of your money back from selling off your mods.

    Your "family commitments" were thus that you took a crappy payout for the car, and didnt bother about maximising the amount of money recovered? Surely if moneys tight then you did the exact opposite of what you should have done.

    Well I got £400 for the car but made about £1500 selling the performance bits I had for the car so wasn't too bad Aragorn, things are easier said then done mate,

    Kwistof the car is great and had a great deal of money spent on it before I bought it, it has had all internals done and ready to handle up to 400bhp just needs a bigger turbo and a remap, the only thing I have done was fit a boost gauge and getting a turbo timer sorted and mainly replaced the whole audio setup now sounds as great as it looks lol

    Yes love scoobies!! I had one not so long ago, it was a really reliable car and what ever mods you like are easily avaliable at a good price. The only problem i had with it was the amount of fuel it uses, it was fooking shocking. But still one of the best cars i have owned
