Yeah, so less of that, on to the positive side of this thread, the old girls finally done (more or less) I got some little bits that need doing, like putting the full induction kit housing back on and some bolts in the bumper/wing area which I need to source but she is 99% is done now, see below :)

Well happy to have her back to her former glory well a lot better than before I think, some keen eyed viewers may see the subtle changes from before which are the Maxton design front splitter to match the finish on the side skirt extensions, black optics grille and finally the biggest change for me is the custom headlights.

Glad to be back.

I was all for it had the welder lined up waiting for me to give him the go ahead but about 2 months ago I sat down with the Mrs and basically in a nut shell said I'm 31 now its about time I owned something a bit special so the plan completely changed I put her back to her former glory as the Mrs is probably taking over ownership when I get the new car and the plan now is to get my dream car towards the end of next year which is Mercedes E63 amg estate 2013 ish shape or maybe as a complete wild card possibly an SQ5 bitdi, ill see next year though Rob.

Its in my blood Rob I cant just settle the Mrs has always said id never be happy (this is not true) lol, id already be smoking around a nice amg years ago but of course I decided to invest countless money into a few 600 & 1000cc superbikes in my late teens and early 20's, not that it was a bad thing mind, I just cant fit all the kids on a superbike so the E63 can be my new drug if the bikes are on the back burner for a while. :icon thumright:

Best go for it then chap, but don't let the bikes slip by though, thats one thing I have always kept, my bikes.
I'm nearly 60 and still have a passion for bikes wether it's race bikes or classics etc, nothing really gets close to the exhilaration of riding a bike, not even a fast car and I've owned a lot and driven some serious kit aswell, you just don't get that buzz .

anyway , enough of this rambling, back to your bus.

Cars looking amazing Ricky. Your still young, you got a few super bikes to have yet. Can’t wait to see your new car. :)
Appreciate it, nice to see it all one colour again, yeah i still got a zx10r itch that's waiting to be scratched, 195hp with none of these safety aids that's something I fancy trying out at some point in the near future :)

I still prefer your mesh grill over the OE one you've refitted, there is just something about the rs4 grilles or mesh grilles that look so much better , just much more in keeping with the car....

Really, I put the standard one back on and thought it looked so much better, the honeycomb one looked cheap looking back at pictures imo, mainly because I used the smaller honeycomb rather than the rs4/6 size which in that case yeah they do look a lot better, my grille was damaged as well so couldn't re use it even if I wanted to unfortunately

Well I guess the good news is the cars not worth any value at all now so ill more than likely always have her around it wont ever be worth selling even when she not used so ill always be here to keep you all company lol :D
