    Selling up aren't I, so bits must come off to be sold separately :(

    De-modding is painful :(

    TBH Jord, forget about the car & think about the thing thats replacing it, always nice to own your own place, cars will come & go, houses are more permanent as such, knowing you as I do, you'll be back bigger & better.

    I maybe in the same boat before long tbh mate, so we'll drown our sorrows together, but probably on a nice summers day in Italy, yahoooooo

    I told yer mate about gazumping, sorry fella, but its obviously not the one for you, dont over stretch yourself aswell, have a limit & a percentage above that limit you can manage & then look for something with that price in mind, dont forget my mate for the mortgage if need help fella.

    Brakes now are ****, the TT-RS ones were awesome

    Weitec's are gone matey, got a sale agreed for them. But for the TT-RS brake setup and the S3 rear brake setup i'm wanting £1500. Both sets have only done about 3000miles total
