      I'm sure a lot of you guys already know me or know of me. It seems the B5 section here is much more happenin than on AZ.

      Anyways I'll just get right to the timeline.

      Sept. 18th 09

      Bought my A4 - 99.5 1.8TQM Black on Black Half-sport Winter Package






      Nov. 09
      Living in Wyoming for school




      I also was able to drive up Pikes Peak

      Dec. 18th 09 Exactly 3 months after I bought my car




      April 10 Finally got around to finding out what happened.







      June/July 10 Started building up a new short block






      Got the block in with NO ENGINE LIFT





      Aug. 3rd 10 She is reborn!

      Sept. 17-19 10 I moved from Wyoming back to Chicago





      Oct. 10 Got around to putting OEM sports in the rear, thus making my Audi a full sport again




      Late Oct. 10 My machanical fan blew up and destroyed my radiator





      Feb. 2nd Huge Thundersnow storm in Chicago, and ST's








      And that's my life as an Audi Owner. Enjoy

      Heyaaaa. Nice to see you over here, and you didn't even have to change your user name haha. You've had the craziest bad luck with your car.




      (in that pm when you said getting at that flange is a tight squeeze to get out..you weren't kidding. Seems I need either smaller hands and or tools.)

      Thanks man! Where I am we had 21 inches, but the part that made it bad was the 50+ mph winds blowing drifts everywhere

      When I first created NeedingAnAudi I hated it. Now I really like it so I use it on all the forums I go to. And haha that thing takes some real skill with the 1/4 drive set. Or you could just pull the PCV system off and throw a catch can in there. Then the flange is super easy to get out.

      Dock for a trailer. It's really not very hard or exciting, you can see the dock in the bottom of this pic.

      Well I co-hosted a very badass meet today, great turnout. I was the only B5 though.






      Pretty sure I'm going to buy the Lorinsors I have on the car, the fitment is basically perfect.

      I didn't lol, I even made sure the garage had space so the vette would be protected. I have no idea why my dad decided to leave it out.

      I figured if I don't like them then all I've done is go on a cruise with my friends on a sunday. But obviously I see some potential.

      All I did was take some of the harness and the connector from my parts car and "splice" the wires with the original electric fan wiring. Pretty ghetto but I haven't had any problems so far.

      Still waay to high



      Lowered it a little more, think I'm done going low. I'm at 23" gtf and honestly I don't want to be scraping everything all the time. My roads are pretty good, hell even downtown Chicago I rarely scrap, but any lower and things just start "randomly" breaking. Maybe I'll go lower when I finish up the AMGs. Anyways, couple comparison pics with my buddy.




      Also been thinking about getting a second car since my hoard of cars has slimmed, buick went back to my gramps, and the saturn has been giving to my sister who just started driving. I was thinking one of these would be cool:

      Nope. Lots and lots of hours sanding, primering, painting, re-sanding, reprimering, repainting. I used Valspar spary paint from Lowes, great stuff. Over all I think they came out really well, looks pretty professional if I do say so myself They are forever filthy though.

      Also, they are actually cream
