Thanks mate
Well, it took some time but I started of with her claiming all sorts of abuse, out to get as much money as she could, keep them away from me as much as she could, fast forward and I managed to prove she was a narcissist, the kids now live with me, they refuse to stay with her, she pays me (not much) and they see her about 7 hours a week if she turns up. Itís amazing how many men I have met that have been in this situation.

Next meet in June, that gives me some time to find the next one

I think it has to be another 4.2 d4, that car was amazing, though Iíve been out of the loop for a while. Wouldnít mind moving to petrol.

Sounds like a plan - might be worth looking at a D5?

D5 does looks amazing,,
I also realise I havenít updated Audi-resource.com for years, itís still getting quite a lot of traffic but could obviously do with a lot of updating. Somehow itís managed to accrue about 22000 members while I havenít been looking. Itís also got some php warnings at the backend so might have to rethink the whole site.

Still if anyone has any d4/5 tech info/ fixes/ upgrades etc, I could look to start.
