Modern turbo diesels take an age to warm up.Maybe 4 or 5 miles if not stuck in traffic.

The postie sneaked a little red card through my letterbox when I was on the bog so no coolant parts to fit today :(

Instead, I got busy with the important stuff

de-badged the arse end and fitted the AS sticker :)

It turns out that the tyres on this are the wrong size - rather than spending loads on a new set, I did the sensible thing and bought myself a set of steelies with winter tyres on. They are a bit scruffy but the tyres have plenty of tread and the set cost not much more than a single new tyre would have.

A quick rub down and a couple of coats of wheel silver

And fitted - looks pretty smart

No more tyres rubbing on the arch liners and a comfier ride :)

The Mot is due next week so I stuck it in today to see what is needed :

IMG_1662.PNG

I was expecting at least one balljoint, annoyingly they are part of the lower arm and not replaceable separately. I don't have time to fanny around waiting for parts so will have to let the garage do them.

The damaged tyre is frustrating, I bought the winter wheels to avoid replacing two of the summer tyres that are worn down. I've dropped off the two good summer wheels at the garage, they can fit them and get a pass. Might look a bit odd with steelies on the front and alloys on the rear but I shan't lose sleep :)

The advisories can bugger off.

Here's to another 12 months and a step closer to 200,000 miles

Well I've got it back from the garage, but without the all important mot :(

The wishbones they had ordered were the wrong type and the only place they can source the right type is direct from audi which is NOT going to happen. However, a quick scan of eBay suggests I can get the right ones so we're not completely bollocksed just yet. I have neither the time nor inclination to fit the buggers myself so it may be going back to the garage next week.

Lots of advisories on that - seems like a bit of a stickler your MOT tester... or is it the just new test (in which case should I be worried?)

 

Anyway, good luck.

 

On a more positive note, nice A2. I've fancied one for ages, an unusual piece of clever, rational German design. Shame they never did an automatic, hence the mrs says no.

The A2 is great .... Especially when you have the wiper on flat out in poor weather when stationary.

They have aged extremely well I think

Right then lads (and lasses), last weekend I was a jammy get and won this smashing little puglet off mr cavcraft with lucky number 36. And I have no need for two smoll threecylinderz on the drive.

IMG_5521.JPG

So, yes, you've guessed it, it's ROFFLE TIME !!1!1!1!

Ten of your earth pounds a ticket, winner takes the funny looking green car home with them tonight*

Current status is it has a full year of mot and is fitted with the 16" alloys, mileage is big at 183,247 but it still drives well and serves up omgmpg. I'll be keeping my fancy-dan alpine stereo but will refit the rather complicated blaupunkt unit that it came with.

With two new wishbones fitted for the test, it should be silent as a fish but it still clonks and bonks a bit over the knackered Edinburgh streets, I blame the heavy 16" wheels.

a couple of things I forgot to mention above - it makes a funny sort of eroogh! noise when you start the engine, I presume something to do with the started motor, it starts first time, every time but has always made this curious little sound.

the coolant* needs a bit of a top up every few weeks, it's probably a bit dilute by now, I was planning to flush and fix it before winter.

you all still good for tickets ?
