Getting there Rob, Dec just around the corner!

Not holding my breath yet - it was supposed to be booked for a whole week of work last week then the guy doing it was off sick with a hamstring injury.
But they keep reassuring me it will be back with me for Christmas.

Just bought some new mounts and bushes in the 034 Motorsports sale - got about 11% off but still spent rather a lot. I'm starting to think my budget estimate may be inadequate.
But it will be awesome.

You say this like it's a surprise, hahaha. That is always the case.

True - things always cost more than you expect and you need things you hadn't thought of. And I haven't even really started work yet.

I think you're on the wrong track, Rob.
This looks more exciting!

That is not an original Treser quattro and ugly is an understatement. Not that the original floated my boat either

Don't imagine Treser would ever lend his name to such an atrocity!

I've spent a lot of time this week adding up the costs and trying to work out how to afford everything and getting pretty stressed out. Wondering if I've taken on too much, worrying about increasing the debt that we've spent the last year trying hard to reduce.

But look at that car. Look at it. It's awesome. It'll be so worth it.

Still considering selling the Skoda and daily driving the Audi when it's done. :D
But I love the Skoda too. Need another garage.
Ah well we'll see.

Interest rate has never been lower, hang on for another year and you will be laughing
As a point of interest, my mortgage rate reached 19.25% at one point, so that will show how well off everyone is today,.
