    It must be wheels as a pic of his car on the stock S3 wheels appeared in the pics thread. Either that or he's sent his off for a refurb in pink ;)

    Looking good David.

    I need my wheels doing but I've not got a spare £350-£400 to get them done as I also need 4 new tyres.

    Morning all,

    Sun is out with not a cloud in the sky down here in the SE.

    Hope it stays like this for the weekend as the car could do with a spring clean and a service :kissmyrings:

    I know that feeling bud. You need to set your mind on the car you want then just search for local ones. We wanted a golf GT and didn't want to go further then 50 miles. Found "the one" 30 miles from home.

    Just get a short list then go and view them this weekend. There's no point just looking at pics of cars, you need to go and drive them.

    I know that mate but there is nothing down here.
    All cars that ticks my boxes are based near london, leeds, manchester or scotland.
    There was one in NI that I planned to get but it sold before I had chance to put a depost down.

    Not bad mate, the dining room has been stripped and plastered up now, builders are going to let that dry and will be back on Monday now to knock the wall through and brick up the other window and doors, re plaster the kitchen and lay the floor.

    They did quite well time wise, so hoping the same will happen next week too :)

    Friday, wahoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    Bike ride tonight, and the wife is kicking me out tomorrow night too, so it'll be a good weekend all round.

    Anybody else got plans?

    I'm out for a few brews tonight and a meal. I've still got a few car jobs to do if I get time this weekend. Got to fit new rear brakes and while I'm at it drop the coilovers. Also hoping the spline socket set arrives today so I can get the front seats out to clean the carpet.

    It's because it's something boring so he's trying to make it sound more exciting.

    Ha, I wish, I have polybushed my front end, and powder coated the front subframe and legs. And I have a 21mm ARB to test out. I've just refurbed the BBS RCs, still the same tyres as the drift vid! :cool:

    Morning all.

    Did everyone have a good weekend?

    I had a random thought over the weekend.
    When talking about money we say the number and then the currency, 148 pounds for example.
    So why do we put the currence in front of number when we are texting it and we still say the pounds after when reading it.
    Should it not be 148£ if we text like we speak?
