Right well kind of an update or a downdate maybe.....

I have decided after much scratching of my chin that i no longer have the enthusiasm to continue with this project, really gutting but i had to get real and what with moving house in a few weeks i really dont need the cost of shifting the 5 and all parts in addition to the cost of moving any way. so i purchased this:

Audi A3 1.8 T Sport with a remap Happy days :)


more of a sensible car but its still a turbo lol cant not have a turbo.

I think i will eventually get another 5 but not as a project but as a sunday drive cos i love em to bits!!!

Thanks for the interest in this thread and thanks for the nice comments and encouragement although probably not quite enough PMSL.

I am however selling her. So parts etc are available and so to is the shell and lump. basically everything you see in this project thread.... Oh and yes it is mortifying taking apart everything i have put together :(

Ill be honest - bloody hard work !

You need to put in hours and hours for no reward ,then other jobs are crackers money.

Find a niche and go for it , dont offer machine builds , and dont deal with job public. Business + server=  where the money is

Thats the thing i wouldnt mind putting hours and hors for no reward if it was for myself but u do that at mo for another person if you get what i mean.

tbh i didnt like the idea of dealing with public, doing home calls etc especially seeing how grubby some people are lol

ash at least you planned ahead, i'd do the 1000+ pcs then realise i dont have enuf power

Right bit of an update.

Been working on getting her back on all 4's so i can roll her into back yard under a cover of some sorts.



Wheels need a damn good clean and poss a refurb but havnt had a good look yet.

So once wheels went on and jack was away i decided to get the boost pipes retro fitted. I do have a R21 IC that i was going to mount at the front but i am unsure as to what to do.

Just gauging what people think on the subject of lockups..

I am getting to the point where i am considering the bad weather and my 5.

I have made good progress with her the past 2 weeks but she still needs a hell of a lot more before she is drivable. so i am thinking do i rent a lockup or garage from council or private or construct a car port in the back garden for it to stand?

i have read a lot of people with lockups saying moiture is a bastard and the lockup acts more as a moiture oven and speeds up the process of rusting if not used often.

the other option i considered was renting a unit on an industrial estate between a group of people.

Managed to sort within an hour so was home and in bed for 4 but then up for 7 :( But main thing is i had no grief :)

Well not normally one to sit and type about my personal life but fuck me what a week.

Been doing a mass upgrade to the network here at my place of work. so early morning and lateish nights and general abuse from the user population. I am the only I am the network admin/tech support/directors bitch etc etc so you can imagine how stressy it can be at times. any amongst all this my other half (9 year relationship) and i havnt been seeing eye to eye so late nights talking/arguing i dont think i av been to sleep before 4am all week then up at 5/6am. my head is fried

anyway tonight i get a call from the md saying email system is down and for me to have look. get on vpn dig around find the issue....sorted for some reason i had a little more of a look at the status of our other servers and find that our file servers main hard drive array has shat itself. so into work i go at 1am. walk up to server room to find a red glow around door.... uh oh yep its shat one... so i am now currently rebuilding the array and restoring data. it was a bit ass nipping at first as i never trus backups despite how particular i am with them.

so yes i havce found myself waiting for data to restore and thought i would post up here and give you an insight into my otherwise complicated life... lol

i am hoping to get home before it gets light mmmm red bull
