wait wasnt this just a super-temporary beater while you waited for the latest and greatest to get to your dealership? whatd i miss?
This has all the makings of a Hallmark Christmas movie. Just replace "girl" with "car"..
Guy is lonely waiting for the perfect girl.
Over the Christmas holiday, guy meets a scrappy looking girl from down south through some mutual friends.
Girl moves the big city of Chicago to be with guy for a "short term relationship."
Fuzzy feelings! This is so exciting!
Oh no! Girl has some issues and needs to see the doctor!
Good news! She's going to live and be better than ever!
Through thick and thin, guy falls in love with girl.
What started off as a short term fling becomes long term.
Cut to next year's Christmas. They're expecting and it's a girl!

Sam isn't going to be happy about you referring to her as "old girl".

O-Rings for coolant pipe came in to parts and I purchased them. Parts manager wasnt the happiest that I had him order the Supply pipe and cancled the order since I found the other O-Rings.

Updated COO:$3,185.66

A lunch was offered as replacement of Drinks. He lives far so drinking in the city and driving home is no good :thumbup:

What kind of mutual friend does that? She's had a bad past, and she'll be nothing but problems for him.

But it all works out because Hallmark movie, as opposed to real life, which in this case means it'll need to be hauled away and he's the mark. :laugh:

In actuality I certainly hope that isn't the case, but I had to. :wave:

Since it was bumped, ECS emailed me this evening letting me know my parts had shipped, should have them by Wednesday, which is the same day the A6 goes back. I leave Friday early morning for Mexico and come back Tuesday. Told Alex today that I would hope to be able to have everything done by Wednesday/Thursday of next week. At which point, it will officially be my daily :eek:

Hope it all goes as planned. Especially if Alex is reading this :laugh::wave:


Edit: I went ahead and bought the metal Thermostat Housing because I figured a plastic one from the south is probably pretty brittle and it would really piss me off if we go in there, change out everything and it ****s the bed 2 months from now. Add 146.85 (with expedited shipping) to the COO

Update of COO: $3,332.51

You made the right decision with the thermostat. Do it right, do it light. Do it wrong, do it long.

Our coach would yell that at us when we’d run in football. I guess we didn’t do anything right, cause we ran for a very very long time. :laugh:

That's just false, sir.


~~~~~

Bought 2 new exhaust manifold gaskets as they might have to get pulled to reach the coolant hoses. OEM parts, shipped to the store for delivery tomorrow, $16.78. Why not.


Updated COO: $3349.29

Work begins Wednesday, and I have to say, I am excited to get this thing back :)

See.. the Twin Cities manage to have two very cool and separate identities and a distinct overall feel. It’s like having San Francisco and Los Angeles separated by a river. Yet, the preference for one or the other is the one thing that makes Minnesotans act like an Eagles or Patriots fan :laugh:

I’d take the R8 on a trip to Minneapolis, and the S4 to St. Paul.

MPLS is a gentrified nightmare. Not NEARLY as cool as it used to be. Unless hipster is 'cool' to you, it sucks now.

*to be noted; I only go there a couple times a year anymore so maybe I'm just in the wrong parts of town ... :confused:
