    No way was a total rip off. The photos were £20 for 1 or £25 for all of them so Helen just took a pic of the monitor with her phone while the woman showed me the pics lol. The other photos I have are all Helen's. They also try to get you to pay for a waiver but there's no change you're going to bin the car!

    Thank god it's friday, although it's only been a 4 day week!

    Im looking for house this weekend, going to see one tonite but there are 9 other people interested, so not holding out much hope.

    Night in with the girlies tonight, fun with the kids on Saturday, then day to myself on Sunday.

    Yeah I skipped it too, bloody rip off merchants. I only got to overtake an Octavia vRS lol. What annoyed me was all the mirrors were aimed at the instructor so I didn't have a clue what was coming up behind me. Was a bit poor. Just want to get the S3 on track now and abuse the life out of it.

    Not likely too in the near future either. Last time I drove it was to limp it home from Bedford when the alternator packed in.

    Its teaching you a lesson for not loving it anymore!

    Mine seems to be teaching me a lesson at the minute. Stupid ESP randomly cutting power for no reason, funny noise/feeling when pulling away from standstill forwards or reverse but then goes when moving and the aircon fan wont kick in. There was me thinking it had no gas in it hence not getting cold. Never paid attention to the fan not actually working.

    Not checked but all good on vagcom. Yeah I do turn it off now. Rather it just be fine or just disable ESP all together though for less hassle.

    You can completely disable it with VCDS if you want. I turned mine off as it was just unbareable to live with on a remapped car. Get your haldex services matey.

    If you have ESP I'm sure there will be a way to disable it in VCDS.

    On the S3 in involves changing the code of the 4WD module so it'll be a bit different on the B5 unless it's a Quattro.

    It is a quattro. I wouldn't buy any of this 2wd shiz! However, the 4wd on the b5 is different, so I'll have to check when I get chance to vcds it.

    Loving it, although driving has been limited as I'm on holiday until tomorrow. Can't wait to get back and drive it some more. The only problem is that the a4 engine has much fewer mod parts than a3/s3's. It seems us a4 owners are more boring. :)
