Spent some time yesterday cleaning all the motors at my parents house while they are sunning themselves in Spain, alright for some!!!

For those of you that don't know, I have pretty much sold F4T4SS and I am just waiting until October when I can purchase my new motor or should I say, my next second hand car!! Thought I would post up some pics, nothing new but thought that she was looking fairly respectable?

Enjoy and any comments as always are welcome!!

PS - Just because F4T4SS is going, I am not going anywhere, I will still be on the forum and I will still be selling lamps at your request!!

Yep, that's right mate, nice and clean and then the heavens opened up!! Thanks very much!!

As for the new motor, I will keep that under wraps at the moment as I don't want to blow my trumpet before I have got it!! Needless to say that it will still be a VAG car but one that many people won't like!!

We will see if I can make it look a little better?

Looks great as normal Simon.

I guess with a few miles on the clock, it is a good time to get a newer/lower mileage car.

Thanks for all those discussions when i had my Bora.

Good luck with your new car when you get it, whatever it is.

Cheers Curely, it won't be a TT mate, too small for me, it's going to be more of a boat in size comparison!!

Appreciate that mate!! We certainly have had our time spent chatting about Bora's, LOL!!

The new car will certainly have less miles on the clock than the Bora but I am sure that I can change that before long, LOL!!

Watch this space!!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, thats one sweet bora. [y][y] Come one mate so what the new car?? [:D]
Cheers mate, appreciate that, not bad for 160k, LOL!!

As for the new wheels, I will keep it under wraps until I've actually got her, it's nothing exciting mate, let's just say that I will be old before my time very soon but I am confident I will have a 'one of a kind' car.

Yep you can indeed, I have loads of other pictures of it that I took that day but I think I would rather change a few things before I show her?

There is very little out there in terms of styling but I think that with some little touches here and there I can make it look respectable?

I just need to make a good decision on the wheels, that is my biggest problem at the moment, any ideas?

I think the audi A8 gullydeckel would look good I dont think anything ott or fancy would work so things like a mesh desin IMO would not work.

These are the gullydeckel (drain covers in english)

They are interesting mate, they weren't in my mind as an option, I was thinking that Euro style would be the way to go with this motor but I am not sure?

I think your right though, something too fancy will not look good, it needs to be plain and simple, just like the rest of the car.
