    eBay is a drug IMO, it's so hard not to!
    Just got to site, 4 cat5 runs through a mahoosive warehouse. Not impressed at this time in the day with a 2hr drive afterwards.

    Did you get a loan for the build? I bet it's well over your initial budget?

    Nope, I hate the idea of being in debt/ having a credit card, It's all cold hard work and doing nothing in the middle.

    Well over initial budget by about 2k now LOL

    But it's getting done properly and that should count for alot

    Oh yeah no way I earned 4k this month, I had enough money to the side for my original budget and I've just been working in the meanwhile to afford the difference.

    Well I'm hovering over a £750 purchase for mine - upgrading the Alpine processor to the new H800 combination - not quite 4K though.

    One of these with the matching controller Alpine - Processors - PXA-H800

    I reckon since I've owned the S3, it's seen about £7K of my dollar disappear into it.

    Now THATS a depressing thought.

    Agreed, however I don't do it myself for the money saving, that's just a bonus. I do it because (not all the time) I enjoy it, and it gives me something to do. I don't have time for many other hobbies these days, so in reality, my car/s is it.

    There are downsides though, for example when something goes wrong, it falls squarely on your head, as opposed to being able to take it back and say 'Hang on a cotton picking minute here....'

    There is a degree of satisfaction when you stand back after doing a job yourself - hopefully that feeling continues after the test drive - LOL

    The only thing I've done to mine is fit the dog bone bush, my rear abs/wheel speed sensor has gone, and I thought about doing that, but I think I remember reading somewhere (a while ago) that it was a bit of a tough job, and I can't find it again to check.

    Welly, will AITP be your last Audi event in the S3??

    Maybe, maybe not. I'm not too sure at this point to be honest.

    I might hang on to her until ADI, and slap some for sale signs in the window for that...

    All depends on the money situation peoples....

    As I've gone along mate, never had any sort of mechanical training at all - apart from playing a lot with Mecano as a kid, and cars aren't really that different.

    None of the rest of my family are that way inclined at all, so god knows where I get it from.

    I must be the milkman's.

    PA head on tomorrow for me so I will be assistant sound engineer for the next three days - downside two nights in a caravan - upside the mixing desks and sound engineers will be based in the beer tent.

    Won't be on here a four days as I have Monday off to relax as it is a pretty physical weekend - especially as I usually only push a keyboard round.

    Looking forward to it.

    Paul
