That's almost a 'top end spec' brand new AR !

However, to make it worse, it is certainly well within FB's budget AR price range !

Or a very good condition used S&B PMII or a new Leupold Mk4

Or a Leupold Tactical spotting scope and change for the pub

Or almost a 1000 rounds of Fed GM Match

Or 9000 rounds of RG 5.56mm ball

Or etc etc etc etc

Had the whole clan down from North of the border so she hasn't ventured out yet! Dread to think what will appear tomorrow as they are all heading back up later!

Aha, nothing. I don't have anyone but myself to blame but I bought a 150 piece socket set with lifetime guarantee.

And a 1/2" drive torque wrench.

The monster is currently pushing around 215Bhp and it's going to climb again soon.

Muahahahhahaha

Neither.

A3 1.8T

Currently running remapped with carbon fibre air intake and milltek exhaust, uprated discs and pads etc, etc. Sitting nicely at around 210-215Bhp.

Compared to a non modified TT or Quattro it will kick their asses as it has the same power, with more torque and weighs 300kg less.

A guy I know has 330Bhp in his, which is achieved by changing the turbo for a Subaru one, changing the intake manifold and injectors and remapping.
I am following the same route but am importing parts from the US so cost will be approx 1/3rd. The only expensive thing will be new brakes which will be around £2500 the set.

Haven't told her yet it will make a nifty 32" computer monitor .

My mate just blagged his missus into getting an LCD, he tells me that due to the "dual input" he can watch my and surf the net simultaneously............ needless to say that once convinced of this neat little trick I will have to begin berating my widescreen as being shite.....

If you want a little LCD for the bedroom or something, ebuyer are doing a special on 26" LCD's, they are open box and in Danish (this is two clicks to change) but they are only £350!!!
