That's it exactly, iv missed my rs4 saloon since selling and getting the m135i, I did really enjoy the bm and it was great fun.

just deep down I love the 4wd and the special feel of an Rs Audi. Hope build week comes forward to march be happy with that

as with being offshore and Christmas and birthdays coming up the time will pass quickly.

Haha no worries mate. The wheels are a personal choice (obviously). Most people prefer the Turbo's but the purists seem to like the lobster claws.

JapanRed's new Steed

Post by Japanred120d » Sun Oct 25, 2015 12:29 pm

Recently been trying to make the garage a bit nicer so bought a Porsche plaque and a few posters.

Next up I need to replace the door protector (foam) that you can see stuck to the wall beneath one of the poster with something that looks a bit nicer. Best thing I've seen so far is the Swissvax door protector but still doesn't look brilliant. Any ideas?

Was supposed to be going out with the Supercar club this morning but went on a leaving do last night and drunk too much, still felt pissed when I woke at 0645 so ended up sacking it off which has annoyed me.

Hoping to get a decent run out in it in next 3 weeks before we go on hol....

The posters and plaque are a nice touch the porka looks right at home now :lol:

As for the door protectors these work quite well I have seen them in a few places also much cheaper than the swissvax ones :shock:

Thanks guys.
Not overly keen on those either I'm afraid Cubz. Maybe I'm being a bit picky haha.
