Drover her. Drove her HARD! Screaming through the twisties, missing by inches the various objects on the side of the road like fences, trees, boulders, farm animals, and gawking pedestrians. Then I opened her up on the straight-away and hit 150 MPH!
Well... actually... I just dropped the kid off at the bus stop and drove to work... But I still enjoyed my time with her.
Today, just drove to work which is only 15 minutes away.

Found the perfect Iphone / Ipod cable that attaches to the dock plug and then splits between the charger and a 3.5mm AUX plug. This and a Kensington Soundwave dash vent mount the phone is up where I can see while driving for navigation and picking new music with only one cable going down to the console area. Since it's through the dock, it mutes when a call comes in routes the call to the bluetooth.
Drove the tractor - sorry, diesel engine - to work, sitting looong in traffic on the way there. Finally found a parking space that'll limit only one idiot from hitting me by parking on the end....
.....then AFTER work, back in the car, cranked up the tractor engine, and surprisingly the car seemed to move FASTER on the way HOME !
Checked the tires when I parked up at home for any dirt (it's raining over here, and I have to drive down a lane on the way home), admired the beaded rain sitting on my car's waxed body, and pressed the button on the fob.
See ya tomorrow A3
The for me today is...
Remove VF Intake
Install Stock Airbox
Wait until Forge Twintake shows up.

turned off the traction and went for a rally-x run in my office's back lot! we got a foot of snow so it was SIIIICK.

did some slip and sliding in the frozen rain road, along with trying to sideways wherever I can. Surprisingly, it it is much easier to control the tail in thawing frozen ice sheet than flattened snow. I can actually the exact positioning of the tail with the throttle instead of the massive countersteering that I need to do in the snow.
Drove to flushing queens Yo traffic court for a ticket, cop never showed and date fo rescheduled again.... Went for some soup dumplings and scallion pancakes as needed some comfort food.
On my way hone, Pushed her to nearly 30lbs of boost. Though about checking cam follower, talked myself out of it...shoveled driveway instead. Mixed and refilled meth tank.

With regards to the ice and this damn winter we are having, I was lucky enough to have been working last night. My car was protected against the elements in parking garage or i would have been in same boat. Looking like that A3 in the city with the waterline break ...
Tried to observe fuel mileage with driving awareness on speed, accelerator use, etc, unfortunately, traffic and headwinds (SoCal getting beat up with cold strong gust of winds , reported 75mph gusts) did not help - This was on my way home and best it did was 27.9mpg average
28 mile trip, dealing also with two canyon passes (Newhall and Santa Susanna)
Then took the car for a wash.
