Well the time has come to say goodbye, me and
will say goodbye on the 18th

Loved all the 4 years but she has started to become a bit impractical for my needs.
Just got the Wolf CAI and Code: Red map to remove then she's chopped in against a Audi A4 3.2L Quattro, need the boot space and a towbar for my bike trailer.
So anybody interested in the CIA and Stage 2 Code:Red let me know, or I'll put them on eBay.
I assume that the Code:Red can be reset to go on another

Really enjoyed the Whitby runs, thanks everybody for making me welcome.

All the best with whatever you settle on mate, hope I get 3/4 years fun out of my ST before I too have to opt for something a little more practical

Alright Eric,

Hope you and the family had a great xmas and new year.
2009 just flew by for me, new seemed to have a free weekend, 2010 is also starting to look rather busy.
Just looking to see how I can improve on the 256bhp of the A4, Superchips can do me an extra 13 for +£200, not much of a gain for the money

Hopefully be able to fit a run with you guys!

Yes we did thanks mate, hope you did too.If the Audi is normally aspirated then I think you are going to struggle to hike the power without chucking loads of cash at it, personally I think I'd leave it alone.

QUOTE(bluestdublin @ 4 Jan 2010, 07:48 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>whats wrong with the boot in the ST would it not be bigger than an A4 but hope u enjoy your new car
You can't tow a trailer with an ST though.

Audis are nice cars. I cant think what the A4 looks like. Is that the one clarkson drove in the south of France. Is the Wolf CIA an enclosed unit?

Yeah Eric, I think I'll leave it alone, it's no slouch and sounds pretty good.

One of his last posts as an ST owner could well be one of his funniest


New motah looks
, just don't forget where the indicators are


Can't help thinking that the SLK55 in the backdrop would have been nice though.

All the best mate and the A4 really is an awesome family wagon. We've had ours (albeit fuelled by the devils own derver) for over 3 years and 60k miles (now on 106k) and it's not missed a bit apart from a few notorious elec niggles.

I might be interested in the CAI kit and am only up the road in Aycliffe. Decided to keep the ST a wee while longer ;-)

That's good to hear, hopefully no electrical niggles for me.
I'm open for offers on the CAI, it's still on the car at the moment, will be taking it off when I get home from the rig, probably over the weekend of the 15th.
