    Weird question. Is that a Saris Bones on the car? If so, does it fit well? I've got one but too worried to put it on the car and wreck my bike.

    Cheers

    Simon

    PS Car is looking good.

    Hello mate. Yes it is, we borrowed it from my father in law. Fitted well, no damage to car and no damage to the bikes. Thanks for your response and kind comment was beginning to think it was invisible as it didnt have air and 7 turbos

    Now Chris. Long time no speak. Normally hang around the A4 threads, but thought I'd have a look around the place. As you already know (from elsewhere) I think you've got great progress with this car. Looks amazing.
