$2,000 in food and drink for four days doesn't seem that crazy when the hotel room is $2,000 per night.

The HAMs are talking. If I had a lot of free time I'd decipher it, but I don't, so I won't. I know the initial one was a bunch of "e"s, so I'm assuming there was an error. :p

I can't wait.

For either really, but the car will get here first.... Hopefully, so that's top of the list for now. :laugh:

So I bought the ECS "Ultimate Timing Belt Kit" assuming you know, ultimate, means that it has everything you would need in order to complete the timing belt change. Well, I am an idiot and assumed that. There was no tensioner in the kit. So add that to the list. Also got an oil filter since I might as well do an oil change while were doing all this work.

Updated COO: $3,455.52
As mentioned earlier, we orrdered the wrong part, so naturally, cost went up another 75 bucks.

Updated COO: $3,530.84


Alex is going to bust out some work this afternoon and I am hopeful to have it back this weekend.

Is this car going to be ugly enough for the Ugly House garage?
I honestly dont think so. I went over to service again today to pay for parts and I just had to stop and look at it. Man it sure does look good....


It will fit perfectly next to the garage in the parking pad spot :)

(crap pic, my phone kept trying to focus on the screen, but you get the idea)

Then once the R8 goes away, before the RS comes, it will live in the garage. Once the RS comes, it will once again be relegated to the side spot.





Until I build a 3 car garage. :)

Dumb question maybe, but how do you get in/out of that garage? It looks like the garage is facing your house, totally fenced in and no way out.

The car parked in front of the garage could back straight up out onto the street.
