@swindon_alan I'm staying off the v8 from now on - I almost promise that. driving this beast back from Kidderminster was an absolute pleasure. She's got a quicksilver exhaust - which sounds

Got this emailed to me today

@Jacques I'm a simple country boy - the 4 pot call was simply too strong. When I first read up about v8s what concerned me was the comments like "lazy mans driving" - I really enjoy the engagement of

@silverfrost sadly she is buried under rubbish and junk in the garage. Mainly bits and pieces from fixing and keeping the S4 roadworthy.

I do have a plan though - I have to finish the build on my barn and complete this current chicken shed contract. A mate of mines moving into the barn on sept 1st and chickens move into the shed at the end of sept - once that's done - then the S3 goes straight to the very top of my priority list.

@silverfrost I've driven her once - to and from mot - which she failed on the brakes being shit. When the front end was in the rollers and she was left running - it started to boil over in a few minutes...... I will drop the rad and recore it to a three row unit and fit some new fans as well.

i must say - it did drive nicely - felt a whole lot smaller and more compact.

the missus still seems to think it might be getting sold once it's done ?. She wants to move house and I'm firm that we need at least a three car garage for me :thumbsup:

Fix the rusty rear plinth "battery connector" Barry and that will put another £10k on the price and a prospective owner will take no notice of the mileage mate...

S4 out the garage - all the dust washed off and a quick clean.

took the car for a good drive tonight. I really do forget how silky and accurate on the road she is. Lovely and smooth - the S4s suspension is absolutely shagged.

got back home smiling.

I’ll have a look at ripdown - not looking forward to the lower links - I have some farmyard Exotics release agent at the ready

Won’t be putting a hammer anywhere near them rear lower links - I’m still recovering financially from finding a broken one on the S4 where a monkey broke it
