    Bumble was sold on Saturday morning, and has gone to live up north in Durham.

    My opportunity to say thanks to all for help over the many moons of being Bumble's owner. Many things been tried and tested. Some failed, some successful.

    Many many thanks to Bill for all his time, and patience with me, and the car over the years - and all of the dyno time!

    Very pleased she's gone to a good home as that was what I ideally wanted.

    I'm hoping to see her again at next year's Audi shows, as well as all of you, as I will have another Audi shortly...

    Sorry to hear it Welly; shame when a car disappears off up the drive unless it's caused you untold pain and money!

    So which Audi is coming next? Surely not an 8P?! :p

    Going to spend the next 6 - 9 months building a track car is the plan. 8L FWD platform, most likely a GT28 tubby.

    I'll open up a new project thread when the time comes.

    Did you get good price for her? Sure it wasn't relative to the amount of effort put in but hopefully respectful of the car.

    I will be looking out for bumble as Durhams not that far away from me.

    I'm here just lurking in the background haha

    Bumble is sheer class, will keep me grinning for a long time with the power it has. Only plan is to tidy the bodywork up next year but may still go for the fp red and the others littles treats in the future that would get to the 500plus which can only make for an even bigger grin :)

    Brilliant mate, it's even decent on fuel when you can manage to talk yourself into pottering.

    Awesome to see the cars still with in the community!

    I hear you don't live to far away from me, you will have to bring bumble out for me to give it a cuddle and of course show me how slow a 450bhp s3 is ;)

    Teesside park the now home of corsa fan boys and "vtec is the best so iv got a 87" exhaust on my car bwarrrrpppp" lol it used to be good down there but I tend to avoid every where like majuba and t park. Mostly just try to avoid the people as they seem to be all about been scene not just having a nice car.

    We need to do our own asn meets in and around the north east it would be good to meet with genuine car modders and enthusiasts.

    Your journey to work will never be long enough now lol
