    So I only just spotted this thread in the B5 section, and was wondering why we don't have one?

    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a4-s4-forum-b5-chassis/163779-what-have-you-done-today.html

    So what have you been upto on your car no matter how big or small, post it up. Saves you creating a new thread just for washing your car!

    As for my own car, I parked it up into my garage pretty much right after ADI, and it's been dormant since. I did take it out yesterday however, just to give it a good clean. Didn't take any pictures though. lol

    I'll just post a clean pic of my car anyways! :laugh:
