Well it's a good 'start', but what about rebuilding the garage and that small side door bit so you can fit in in there! You know you want to!
All too often, the light at the end of the tunnel turns out to be a headlamp on the on-coming train of disappointment.

A car-port sounds good, not sure there's room for it though!

Doing something with that door to the side is on the cards, it's an alleyway to the back but wasted space so ideal for making the garage wider, just hope it's long enough! I haven't measured yet.

Just rip it down and build a new one to the correct 8 dimensions!
You and your brother can lay bricks!


2001 Audi S8 - Brilliant Black with Black interior, C5 RS6 rims (whenever I actually put them on...), Solar Sunroof, Tinted side and rear glass, RNS-D, XCarLink, Bose, clunky old phone in arm rest!
2002 Audi S8 - Project
Replacement head coming thanks to MJ
Avus Silver with Black interior. All features as the '01, with the 'S' mode auto shifter. Dodgey rear tint (need to find a way to get rid of that).
2009 Volvo XC90 V8 R Design
- has a louder more obnoxious exhaust than the S8, sounds great! Love this thing - Q7 was double the price, and certainly not double the car!

1997 Audi A4
- Hamilton's Club Sport, Achat Grey (will miss the old girl)

Cost-effective and efficient way to maximize the use of space.
