Hey guys! Been a long time since I got on here. In a past life I had a 00' A4 that was my pride and joy, but since then I haven't had a noteworthy dub that excited me. Until now. I just bought a 2008 Candy White R32, and I couldn't be happier.
All of that said......... I bought the car from an insurance auction, after the P/O totaled it. So, she's got a long road ahead of her before she's back on the road and pounding pavement.
Car # is 4682 and I’m the first to register it. She's got 54k miles, interior is in great shape, and aside from needing a new front bumper, hood, and passenger front fender, the rest is good too. Haven't heard it run yet, as the front clip is removed. I'm working on drawing up everything I need to do to get her back together, and balancing it with what things I'd like to just upgrade from the get go and do it once.
I plan to occasionally note in this what I'm working on, more for myself to keep a log of what's done and when, but all input is welcome and encouraged.
Here's to putting one of these sweet rides BACK on the road, and saving it from a shallow grave.
So far, here's what I've got on order:
Radiator core support
Misc plastic intake bits
Noticed some weeping from the valve cover so I might do that while the intake mani is off. Also need to assess secondary air injection pump to determine if it needs to be replaced or if the mounts just broke and can be replaced instead of the entire pump.
