    Hi All
    Having seen some of the responses that people have got for text speaking and dodgy spelling and grammar I've made sure I've got a Thesaurus and Dictionary to hand. :readit:

    Right ok the serious stuff, I'm In northamptonshire and after many years I have my first "Grown UP" car. An A4.
    Previously I've had 2 Renault megane Coupes ( 1.6 & then the 2.0l IDE - Take my word for it the 1.6 was by far the better car)

    Then had a run of Mk2 & mk3 Golfs, including 1 VR6, 2 GTi's and lastly a TDi.
    and that brings me to my 'New' Audi A4. is S reg and currently unmodified.

    Was pointed at this site by a great Parts Guy at the local Audi Dealership <gives a big nod to cal1470 Cheers Mate:thumbsup: >

    Not to go too far but have always joined a forum for the current car and they have been excellent in terms of having a laugh and getting loads of help and advice.
    I'm thinking it looks like I'll be getting the same deal here then!

    Cheers

    PS ( sorry it's a bit long, but there ya go! If you made it this far.. well done:respekt: )

    Should of been "I'm in Northamptonshire" :nyah:
    Only joking welcome to the site,the grammar thing is just going on because......well I don't really why but its a bit like the Spanish Inquisition at the moment with people using text grammar.
    What type VR6 was it ? I had a satin silver one but it was a bog standard one

    to be honest only had ir for bout 6 weeks, was running 240Bhp ( think that was standard for 2.8??) then got very sideways, followed by backwards, sidewards, rightways, sideways, backwards and sideways in the space of bout 3 seconds. decided it was far too powerful without making some major mods in terms of suspension/steering/brakes etc Also was driving a bit like LOON!! :jester:

    So went back to a Gti 2.0 8V. and modded it like a madman! rofl

    Welcome along.

    Don't be put off by the recent posts. I think it's been brewing for a while.

    have to admit then I don't know, It was the first (& only) car that I bought already modded. I know that it had lightweight reduced diam ali flywheel on main crank, plus Induction kit + stuff that I didn't know anything bout at the time ( guy told me it had upgraded S/charger and didn't know any different back then:think: ). looking back it was a huge mistake Wouldn't do it again.
