    S3 vs Wood Pigeon

    Jesus,

    First the cash machine swallows my card for no reason and then I hit a pigeon on the way back to work.

    I certainly caught the pigeon.

    Yeah the gutted is the operative word!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Still with 'some' of the entrails on my radiator, I'm sure the smell of fricesse pigeon would smell nice wafting through the engine and inturn through my air con.[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/vomit.gif[/img]

    What makes me laugh is that I washed it last night!!

    Re: S3 vs Wood Pigeon

    that reminds me of the time i went to british touring cars at brands hatch. This guy pulled up in a ferrari F355 and was looking all smug as everyone was looking at his car. what he didnt realise is that we were all laughing at the blood on his bumper and the half a pigeon stuck in his grill [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif[/img]

    I think that should read:

    May he/she rest in pieces.

    Had a good look last night, the only damage is where the 'beak' impacted on the bonnet (the white spec below the first ring), otherwise the old Clay Bar Quik Detail System quickly removed the rest of it.

    Ho hum, be wary of flightless birds as you journey this weekend.

    Re: S3 vs Wood Pigeon

    Had new discs fitted today and had to stop pretty quickly when i noticed the traffic stand still in front, there was an accident. I was doing well over the speed limit, anyway once i stopped and sat in the traffic for a bit they started smoking, so i pulled over to have a look but could not work out why? They did not even smoke when they were metal on metal hope i have not warped them already.

    Re: S3 vs Wood Pigeon

    well i had to stop, up until then i had hardly used them, maybe 10 miles or so... what do you reckon? they looked alright earlier plus i left my handbrake off for a while until they cooled down. My allows that were cleaned by Audi only a couple of hours before are now black again even after 10 miles. I'm just lucky it stopped at all.

    Re: S3 vs Wood Pigeon

    Did Audi fit them or did you?, sounds to me like the pistons in the brake callipers were not full back making the pad drag on the discs, plus the brake dust on the wheels. Did the car seem sluggish ie you needed to give it abit more gas setting off. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devil.gif[/img]

    Re: S3 vs Wood Pigeon

    Audi done the work, i've just been out in the car and they seem ok! it's ashame i have not got the money for a Porsche upgrade. I did not think about that, it was quite embarrasing having to pull over onto the grass, there was no hard shoulder. Everyone who i had overtaken was now beside me in the traffic [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
