So after having the S4 for 3 or so years I wanted to tidy it up....
A good friend owns a body shop in Poole Dorset, we were just going to repair the dents and stone chips.... usual really
After looking at it the whole car needed little bits....... ( you can see where this is going )

Hmmmm.........

Looking good. Proper job too. How long roughly in hours to prep the panels prior to painting (including the trim strip-down)?

Ahh I thought I recognised that front mount! One of our kids goes to Emmanuel school we often see I'm presuming your wife in it around school pick up time :) have seen it around for a few years actually, I think when our little girl was at moonacre nursary 3 maybe almost 4 years ago? We ll wave. Next time!

I thought it was that car when i saw it, I even remember it being standard and Ive always thought what you may have been tinkering with under the bonnet when i saw the huge front mount behind the grill.

Occupational hazard that one.
I do tech development, calibration etc for a local tuning company.

Perhaps we should have a Verwood meet

Very nice, good choice on the colour too mate, white is BACK, along with all 80s retro stuff, everyone was doubtfull when I told them I was picking up a ,white classic (e34) BMW M5 until they saw it in the flesh and all agreed it looked well :)
