A wet but still packed AITP6

13 August 2014 Incomplete, unfinished interior, old knackered wheels, car park war scars and rain so hard you couldn't see the road, but still made it to this years Audis in the Park. Despite planning months in advance, the A4 still wasn't ready…

Fine British tailoring

02 June 2014 The rare occasion that Andy and I got adjacent parking spaces made for a nice photo opportunity. His freshly washed and mine typically filthy! I think it's great that despite being the same car they look so different. Definitely tailored…

Audi A4 de-chrome (black optics)

Tail light lens tinting

10 February 2014 Getting the little jobs tied up while I wait for the A4 to go into the bodyshop, this weekend was tinting the tail lights. I didn't want to completely black out each one, the indicator lines meet the line across…

A4/S4 Headlight tinting experiments

19 January 2014 My S4 headlight lenses could do with a bit of buffing as they're looking little cloudy, but for the time being I thought I'd try tinting them as I had some stuff laying around. So I had a can of…
