    I'll start you off with one of my favourite cars on the entire site...

    Granted it's not an Audi - but it's still VAG (well sort of lol)

    Used 2012 Porsche Ruf for sale in London | Pistonheads

    (I am in no way linked or know the owner of this car! lol)

    I've seen it in real life mate and even those pictures don't do it justice.

    Made the Carrera GT look pretty boring IMO lol

    Not driven it since Saturday as my insurance company have been shut till today and I've been on leave today.

    I'll give you all some proper feedback throughout the week as I get used to it and sling it about some A Roads ;)

    I insured it at 10am on my way to a spa with te mrs which was a valentines present for us both.

    Looking forward to tomorrows commute though.

    I love the fat 5s too mate. I wanted them on my S3 so I'm very happy to have a set now. They really suit the car, especially in that grey colour.

    No idea what colour it is. I'll check the paint code.

    The collage was a 30th birthday present. It's loads of different photos of me growing up over 30 years.

    Can't do much about that gap. No mice yet.

    Closer pic of the collage Westy.

    I got a gap like that under my garage door.
    I'm looking in to rubber strips to put on the bottom.

    Fat fives are cracking wheels.
    Its just a **** that they are so stupidly priced.

    First day of the 100 mile commute Westy?
    How was this 100 mile commute?


    My roof box hoist is up and working but it needs revising.
    I'm not happy with the way it swings around and smacks me in the back of the head when I pull it up.
    Its to easy for it to tilt left and right if the stuff in side shift around and it needs to go higher.
    So it will go between the joists after I fitted some bracing.

    What a lovely drive in this morning! Comfortable, effortless drive. Had to overtake a few HGV and slow drivers but apart from that had a steady drive in. The DIS is reading 45.6mpg and was still climbing. I'll need to fuel up tomorrow so it'll be nice to see what it says after a week of driving.

    Morning all. Brimmed the tank this morning with £72 worth of the black stuff. Range is saying 550 miles which would be nice if I could get near that.

    I also got the radio working last night. 1 day without the radio and I was going mad lol.

    Excited about collecting the golf tonight. Dervs all round!

    Nice one fred! Are you using v power derv? I always got more miles using that over regular derv!
    It never give me extra power that i noticed, but it did give me more miles per tank! So it obviously does something good for the car!

    I reckon you'll get close to those miles Fred, you do long runs. Will be interesting to see though.

    I found v power works better in my petrol but never bothered with it in the derv.
