    i reckon a photoshop,
    look at the reflection on the navy one, sort of open plan drive, swimming pool area in reflection, compared to the reflection on the top one!
    different sky too...., plus the top one's wheels are not touching the cars underneath!!! a 2 ton DB9, cannot sit on another's windscreen!
    just sayin.............. :thumbsup:

    I still use that but take the family car. The 2.0 TDI needs thrashing to keep the EGR clear. :)

    That is one big, ugly boat it's on. Needs a remap, maybe a pulley upgrade?

    First proper performance related modification turned up in the post today (many thanks to Cuppa).

    Beautifully made, but unlikely to fit it until I get the other performance mods done.

    I've got dates available, but given some of the dispatches from port have been 4 weeks rather than the usual 2 I am loathed to commit then mess him about because of incompetent logistics. I think what I'll do is get him to clean it on Audi's site (2 bucket), then take it back to him in June with no further washes.

    All but a week since car arrived in the UK and not a pip squeak from the dealer. Could do with a heads up as I can't prep DMC for a date to go over and clean it.

    Autostyle mats ordered a week ago, no sign of those either.

    Hoping something happens by the end of this week.

    This is the worst bit now, the home straight knowing the car is built and in the UK and waiting on a phone call from the dealer.

    Not unheard of! I've seen one person who had the wrong colour delivered, and another infamous one where someone had ordered an Imola Yellow Cab (S or RS5, can remember which) and the wrong colour folding hood was delivered - think it was red rather than the ordered black!

    Let's just say it was definitely targeted and I'm going through a long and messy divorce involving kids unfortunately (as in restricting me access, and I wasn't playing away from home either)

    I have a mantra and it states no matter how pissed of you are with someone, don't take it out on other peoples property. A mans car can be a very personal statement so I understand why people with a gripe do it, but retaliation vandalism is the lowest form of personal expression in my book. Horrible situation and I really feel for you on that one.

    Many moons ago in a 'previous life' I worked in a pub in Oxford during my studies. One night one of the pissed up customers decided one of the bouncers cars looked like a suitable latrine, needless to say that didn't end well (and it was only a ten year old Cavalier). The bouncer took particular exception to this and lets just say if the bloke in question had scratched it rather than micturate on it I'd probably have been shovelling up a corpse rather than hosing blood off the street.

    Cant wait for you to get the new car Warren! Liking the sounds of the mods already! 20s it has to be! 19s look small on my A4. Never mind your S5!! My friend may still have his oem 20" RS4 wheels (the new style) for sale let me know once you have your car. I'll ask him, he bought them for his TTRS but changed his mind.

    The S3 looks lovely on the move! Doesnt look that bad! ;) Hopefully you will be attending AITP or ADI so i can have a good old catch up with you :) I need to get around to doing a thread on the DTM.

    Would love the RS4's, but likelihood is I won't have the cash until next April (bonus time) as this years has gone on car / mods / holidays to appease the missus! If he doesn't get rid till then I may be able to swing it.

    Thanks for the kind words, now get that DTM build thread started chap and will pop round and see you at one of the shows. Hope all is well down in Cardiff, missing being down in Nantgarw.

    Mat Daddy

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Autostyle mats arrived today.

    Quality-wise I'm pretty pleased with them, good solid carpet with a rubber backing on them and they are fairly stiff which means they should resist the curling that can occur at the edges of cheaper mats.

    Including delivery and an additional logo they were about £70, so thanks to the good lady wife for buying them as part of my b'day present. I chose not to go for the additional footplate as I don't think they look very OEM, and if the footplate gets scuffed then the mats look second hand anyway, I'd rather just go with the OEM look, save a fiver and replace when wear signs show.

    Went for subtle silver piping to match the lunar leather, not too sure if it's a bit subtle, time will tell.

    And in conclusion

    It's clearly been a long journey, but this spells the end for the pre-modification session. There is the detail to come, and I haven't included the Disklok in the pic as it's a mod I'd rather not have to buy, but come collection day the S5 will be having it's official birthday and getting a selection of tat bolted to it.

    In no particular order:

    1. Audi OEM Supercharged badges (supplied by Crewe Audi via their eBay store)
    2. H&R Trax Wheel Spacers 20mm/15mm, extender bolts and McGard lock bolts (supplied by DTUK - lightly used)
    3. LED interior light pack & fog light bulbs (supplied by Trups at EM Tuning)
    4. Audi S5 key rings (Supplied by eBay trader???)
    5. Audi R8 oil cap (Supplied by Storm Development in Aldermaston)
    6. Porsche 911 coolant cap (Supplied by Porsche Centre Bolton eBay store)
    7. Western Digital 1Tb HDD for media (Supplied by John Lewis)
    8. Carpet mats (Supplied by Autostyle)
    9. Transmission Mount (Supplied by 034 Motorsport - thanks Cuppa)
    10. Private plates (Supplied by the DVLA)

    [​IMG]

    I've got some Audi pressure monitoring valve caps, rubber floor mat and red AMI cable waiting for me at the dealers on collection day, but as said that concludes the pre-modding.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now just need an update from the dealer to alert DMC to availability for the detail.

    oooooooh love the mats.

    I may get some of those next year and relegate my current ones to winter mats.

    Jeeeeeeeeees loads of stuff :)

    Valve caps look ace - just hope you manage to keep hold of them !
    I had a car many years ago and got fed up of buying new ones after kids nicking them for their push bikes no doubt.
    Gave up in the end and went back to standard black ones.

    Cheers fella.

    Know what you mean about the valve caps. I got some from Fleabay for S3 and they came with security lock nuts . These lock nuts locked solid and I had to remove them with pliers! Bloody rubbish. If they go I have some standard chrome caps from old set of wheels, won't order any more.

    Sad as it may sound, when I dropped my missus at the station this morning I decided to head up to the dealers storage location and have a look through the fence to see if anything had turned up.

    As I was peering through the fence at a raft of various black rotor clad cars not one looked like an S5, all A4 / A5 of various denominations. Then a transporter arrived with a partially obscured black car with rotors on it. Heart was in mouth at this point. It got closer..... bloody A7 TDi Quattro BE :wacko:

    I sent the dealer an email 2 days ago asking for an update, nothing....

    The lorry that turned up was an 8 car carrier carrying one Audi, some VW's and some other tat. It was sporting a 'Sensible solutions' logo, so not a Stobart lorry, so wonder if this company is helping out.

    This would be the perfect weather to take delivery, paint the hubs, fit the wheels and start to enjoy the car. I just wish they'd get their f*****g act together now as I'm ready for change.

    Damn that A7 black edition :)

    it has GOT TO be soon !

    Yeah the weather has turned perfect now for taking delivery - way better than November when I got mine.

    Hang in there, I'm sure it will be delivered any day now ... no doubt you'll be down to the Dealers in a shot to see her :)
