    In the short term I'll settle for it running and being oil-tight! :laugh:

    If I achieve that, I need to sort the ride height as I currently suffer altitude sickness when driving it. After that I intend to thrash it on track as much as possible. :eyebrows:

    Whats the comon issue Ras, oil leak? From where? Im 2.8 also, will have a look out but sure it aint losing any.

    As for plans, finally getting it in for paint job this coming week, fitting RS4 bumper, facelift S4 rear, skirts and a new lip spoiler.

    Got some new rear lights sitting here that im gonna custom mod, will reveal when they're done.

    Got a 2nd set of Recaros coming so i can chop the subframes about and get my new ones fitted.

    More carbon fibre stuff as time goes on, small bits here and there.

    Interior parts to work on, and sound system to fit.

    New wheels to be refurbed and new tyres fitted for summer.

    etc etc..............never ending really!

    I would like to fit better skirts but the paint cost is putting me off.

    Remote central locking and front fogs, grille chrome blacken, front light mods to black trim, door card leathering.. s4 replica? perhaps.

    Prioritise storage!! She's not sitting out in this snow again! Maybe ARBs! any good threads on here? S3 boys love them but seems to be less hype on the s4's? Might be gettin blonder but I'm sure you could do acaearch within one forum? I can't seem to search without getting results from all across Audi-sport?

    If you search for H-Sport sway bars you will find something, They make all the difference as these B5's need alot more rear bar just be ready for the oversteer!

    i have just picked up mk5 golf gti brakes, need to get discs, paint them black and fit them.
    i have a black roof lining sitting in the garage waiting for a couple more pieces before i fit that.
    i want to black the grille surround and some bits of the head lights and the rear A4 badge.
    need to refurb my rs4 reps or replace them.
    need to change my thermostat.
    i have £340+ worth of suspension arms and cv gaiters to fit asap to stop the front end rattling about.

    damn this weather damping my enthusiasum for laying under a car!

    Not really plans more ideas and if i get the time and money then turn them in to plans.
    The idea list keeps growing and keeps getting more adventurous but I enjoy a challenge.

    This is the list of ideas and plans.
    Brake upgrade.
    Auto boot lid (slowly building up a part list)
    folding mirrors (ebay hunting at the mo)
    New Alloys.
    Lowering.
    Facelift dash (Got some parts, just need the rest to finish it off)
    Double din head unit then hopefully RNS.
    A machine polish and good clean.
    Facelift front and rear lights.

    I think thats it for now.
