    So yesterday I visited the Slayer.

    He fired up the second I turned the key, all fluids spot on.

    Straight up to temp, like he had been driven all week.

    Gave him a wash and a wax, cleaned all my **** out of it.

    Sad to see him go. :(

    He does have tits. In the form of FMIC pipes.

    Of cause I thrashed it, that's what it was built for. And that's what Jamie should be doing to it :)

    It's not like an S3 that blows up at first sign of boost :p

    Good car, will be missed. Glad it's gone to Jamie though, it'll clearly be better looked after in the hands of an engineer rather than a dodgy salesman.

    I picked J-rod up from work yesterday, it was quite funny, for the first few minutes he was still in work mode, talking like a right dodgy salesman, I'm sure he even called me Sir at one point :laugh:

    Get it right!!! :p

    Thanks for the lift bro, appreciate it.

    Now that Nick and I both drive **** diesels, we had race back to see who's car is less ****.

    Prawns car is less **** round corners, my car is less **** in a straight line.

    Prawns car also looks less ****.

    Which is why I am buying an S3. Probably next week.

    I emailed a local dealer this morning, who will give me a profit on the Diesel and a deal on his S3. Only problem is it's black. And I want a white one.

    Going against the grain on that after your last two previous car colours of black and ummmmm black aren't you- think of all the money you'll have to spend on new car detailing products to get that 'whiter than white look' :p

    If I was to go for an 8P (Massive IF there) - it would have to be the pretty much the same as Ben has just got if you've seen that?

    I threw so much away yesterday, starting a fresh with detailing products.

    Threw way a bottle of Super Resin, Intensive, Zymol cleaner wax, Tech Wax, Collinite, Glyptone, AG bumper are, megs trim restorer, megs tyre dressing, a load of AG shampoos, a full bottle of aquawax, a new bottle of AG screenwash. Literally cleared my shed.

    The only things I kept were an almost empty tub of Crystal Rock, half a tin of Desirable, a tub of AG High definition hich I only use to hold down my microfiber stack and a tub of Dark Angel.

    Binned all my old microfibers, and my kit bag.

    Then placed a reasonable order with Mark and a new Swissvax cooler bag.

    Ordered a bottle of Revelation, QED, Bilberry, Heaven, Elixr, super fluffy cloths and some other bits.

    GENUINE real life true story.

    I have saved up a bit of money to buy a track car to run along side the diesel, and I was about £500 away from buying an S3 on Monday night.

    It may or may not make sense, but with all my VAG contacts it would be appealing to get an S3 and strip the hell out of it, rods and BT. The other option was a TT. Who knows.

    Might even buy the slayer back off Jamie if the price is right.
