    I hope so... it was suppose to be temporary, as I was job hunting to be a car sales man of all things, but once you start seeing an income, things changes.

    Jojo, You studied Business, Maths and Computing. Went looking for a job as a Cars sales man but ended up running a chinese take away?

    I guess Business and maths and uni helped out then?

    Actually, all my skillz have come in handy! Business speaks for itself, I'm running one, Maths is an odd one, I've computerised my business, so Maths is no longer a problem, the machine does it all for you, but I still have to do the accounts, and IT, well, I get to surf the web all day long! lol So all came in handy in the end! :laugh:

    Working at home this morning as I'm off to a funeral at 10:30, then back home, change and cycle into work in time for lunch.

    Glad it is Friday and a long weekend :yahoo:

    Mind one of my mates is coming over tomorrow afternoon to help change one of our hardwood windows as it is rotten.

    Bored today. Got a busy weekend though. Got two houses to look at tomorrow, and then off in the evening to Banbury to look at a Denim Blue TT 180Q.

    I keep having a look at that myself. :thumbsup:

    There just seems to be the same old boring posts on the 8L forum. I'm getting bored of reading about "what Air intake is best" and "can I de-cat my S3" threads :banghead:

    He's already tipped off the neighbour about the package so it should be there today. I'm trying to get hold of Dean at 4Rings to see if my turbo is off the car yet but he isn't answering his phone!

    Yeah, I did see that. Weird though as it had no such issues with the two different high flow manifolds I tried.... :-/

    Also, not seeing those issues on the Lupo either.

    Doesn't mean it's not happening, I guess there could be some play in the penny valve possibly - but again, unlikely.

    I've just arranged for my turbo to go to Turbo Dynamics after all the bad feedback i've heard about CR. I'll let you know how it goes. They collect it on Tuesday
