Faisal's RS4

Post by FaisalJ » Wed Oct 11, 2017 10:04 am

The very expensive cling-film is on!

I was curious whether I'd be able to tell any difference in gloss between the front end and the rest of the car (coated in gtechniq). I can't Image

Waiting for some in-progress pics from the installer, but here it is when I picked it up

Image

Image

I've been toying with the idea of selling up and moving on in a few months - but seeing it how it is now, I'm baffled what to do. I think I'd regret it.

I might get my "new" car fix instead by upgrading the wifey mobile to something like an RS3 or B8 S4 instead. And then keep the modding addiction at bay by going big Turbo on the TT!

Quite possibly, yeah. I mean what kind of idiot uses a car that sounds like a NASCAR as a family car, and throws thousands of pounds at a 10 year old inanimate object? Image

Not just me then haha.

C7 RS6 or an R8 V10 are the two that I've been dreaming about.
