    It was supposed to be the Drum intro from Gene Kruppas Sing Sing Sing but I couldn't find it. So I went for Facebooks more obnoxious metal sounds.... I was actually listening to the Grand Prix at the time.

    I am catching him

    210,000 miles 2002 B6 A4 1.8TQ everything totally orginally including exhaust engine and box and turbo

    Only thing gone wrong so far is fuel pump and 1 coil pack
    And how is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive?

    As far as I'm aware all original. The prop shaft is about at the end of days and the gear change is a tiny bit loose (but not got worse in the time I've had her), so yeh, I suppose it is all original.

    One of mine failed catastrophicly, gearbox was due to 2nd not coping with increase in power. Turbos seem to go for a past time,lol
    Suspension has been due to failiures, wheels and tyres... not so much except maybe baldness,lol

    Heartiest congrats to Stinky, well done indeed.

    I'm now perilously close to the 70,000 mark. Means I've put 19k on her in a year.

    (don't want to think about how much beer I could have had for 19k miles worth of petrol...)

    I know. I've just worked that almost to the mile since purchasing stinky I've done 80k... that's Since October 2006! Not many cars I've had would have even gotten to 250k and still feel as though they've got plenty more in them...

    Well, I'm afraid to say that, now on 250k your car is seen as "of historic interest" by English Heritage, and is protected by law. Your blue wall plaque is presumably in the post.

    On the other hand, if stinky does throw a rod or anything else terminal then a proper viking burial with fire and much dancing is the only way to go.
