      Hi, everyone. I'm happy to be on/contributing to this side of the forum. I know this place doesn't get as much traction as some of the Audi-specific forums, but I come here for my VW stuff. As such, it works out to keep my timeline here, too.

      I recently sold my 2008 VW Golf .:R32, which I daily drove for almost 2.5 years. I now work from home, and hardly drive at all. It was time to get rid of the car payment, and replace the .:R with a fun, occasional driver.

      Yesterday (4/16/14), I purchased a B5 S4 that had been loved and heavily invested in over the years. The previous owner sadly passed in December 2013, and his family wanted the car to go to someone that would continue to enjoy it at the same level. That is my intent, and this will be an ongoing timeline of my ownership of the vehicle.

      Thanks, guys. Car does need a little TLC. All of the pictures I've posted so far are fairly dated. Once the car is up to standards, I'll update the pictures.
