    Again, looking for --NO-- responses this time! :x:

    1. Sitting at work, Holmes rolls in. No one else around, so I help him find a set of wheels for his 99 A4. "White. They have to be white to match the white graphics on my doors." Oh boy, thinks I, send in the clowns. So I find him a suitable set of aftermarket rims, and follow him down stairs and out to the lot to "check out his ride"....and was quite unprepared for what I saw:

    So whatever. The next thing I know, my Chief Operating Officer decides he needs a UUC System*U exhaust on his straight-piped Stickley-engined 98 M3/4, so I get the call, head over after the install, and this is what I find:

    Mine for a comparison:

    The "out takes" :

    Oh there was also an Autocross this weekend, pics and video if interested:

    Which of course brings me to what I have been working on for the past couple of weeks, and which has made me thankful for my countless web design friends that can go in and beautify this thing as they owe me a few favors. Man I suck at web design - but I have always been a network guy, hence the Chief Information Officer title, and not webmaster title. :rofl:

    I don't mind dropping the link, even inspite of its current state of crapulence, as you guys can say that you "knew it when" :

    The only other thing that I can say in my defense is that I coded the damn thing using nothing but notepad and a basic HTML book. And it shows! :big grin: SO this is where/what has been taking all my time lately...and I honestly hope that you are all doing well and enjoying a fine summer.

    Is it just me, or do those graphics make that A4 look a lot like a Tercel in the first picture? :ugh:

    Well...In all honesty all I saw was some 17 year-old dingdong who was actually working hard to do his "mods." He was paying for the paint and the wheels, and was a decent kid in spite of his horrible taste in modifications.

    I tried to steer him to the path of righteousness, and spent a good hour explaining that he could have a pretty trick looking A4 if he removed the graphics, chose a nice set of wheels and bought a real exhaust instead of that big bomb on the back...but all he kept saying was "that's what everyone thinks is hot now, the fast look.." - So I just couldn't shit on the poor guy. At least I tried. :dunno: Hopefully he will wake up someday and wonder WTF he was thinking. :(

    :uh:

    I really wish TFATF was made tastefully. Just imagine if the "cool" cars in that movie where super clean tastefully done cars without nos!

    I would be an eleventy billionaire by now. :hs:
