    I was the same mate. Never do pain killers or any type of pills but I wasn't sleeping, was loosing a lot of weight and was generally a miserable sod to be around. I decided to give them a go and they have definitely helped.

    No i'm happy to hear people's input

    We know that a lot of talking and a lot of work has to be put into this if it's gonna work. We've got a year to sort things coz she's tied into her new lease in Bedford until then so plenty of time to work through things

    I wasn't sleeping and was losing weight too, but instead of straight forward sleeping pills he tried the prozac, which i'm just not a fan of

    Trust me mate I'm one of the most anti (excuse the pun) pill person you'll ever meet. I never understood depression until I was suffering from it myself, I never understood how people could say they were depressed over things like relationships.

    I also lost interest in everything I once enjoyed, my car, the gym, football. I started drinking a lot and wasn't interested in getting out of bed to go to work. That was when I knew I needed the pills.

    I've now put my weight back on (well a bit of it) I'm back interested in sport and life again and I'm emotionally a hell of a lot stronger.

    If she mentioned that, I would not let her drive it again. She's addicted to it. Serviced it last night, and fitted an old K&N I had so we've got some whoop-tsssh out of it.

    She's so happy with driving it it's funny. lol

    Sandra makes an excellent point.... Wait until the market picks back up.

    The longer you keep it, and not drive it, then less the mileage will effectively become....

    Find somewhere! lol

    My drive is mad, I have a BMW 1 series stuck there unsold, and the owner has decided to export it into Australia, which is going to take another month, this S3 I'm trying to sell, had to move my mk2 Golf to the back of my shop, and there's the school run Rav4 and the workhorse Passat Wagon!

    I feel like a car dealer struggling to trade!! lol

    Got some little ones coming over in 30 minutes also haha, that's going to be fun. :laugh:

    I will if it doesn't sell in the next 6 days, the point is, I have 2 of them, and I'm only insured to drive one of them. I really want to attend AitP in my original S3, but so long as S3 number2 is here, I will just be using it.

    I think the mileage issue is past that stage @156k miles lol. Runs surprisingly good for the mileage though... even I'm mightily impressed!

    Right, time to get ready folks, If I don't post again this evening, then I might possibly have died.

    As long as it is reliable BHP - not that Bill doesn't know his Onions.

    Seems a never ending saga getting more and more power out of these S3s.

    Welly good find on the TT repair BBA have a pretty good rep - my mate's garage uses them a lot.

    Be covering the office on my own this afternoon - everyone else will be working from home for various reasons.

    Sun is showing through the clouds down here on the Hamble River - might have to walk out on the deck for a few minutes free sea air.

    I've been down the galley for some food, half a pizza, small tub of beans, 2 chip butties, small pile of chips left on the plate, a BTL baget, half a pint of slim fast (it was left over from yesterday) and a 30min walk around the base.
    I'm bit full up, bit sweaty, bit hot, need a big poo and I still need to have my river trip jolly.
    Poo first then jolly I think.
