Today, I rescued yet another A21.4 tdi with 114k miles, on the clock for a lovely lady I met by accident in Worthing, from the scrapyard.
The car drove fantastic, Audi had quoted £3000 to repair the damge. ( She had hit a bullard not claimed from insurance )
With thanks to @Proghound for supplying the door & @RS11SMS for the Sill, 1/2 liter of paint & sundries etc for the rear door & wing 8 hours solid work.
Job done, with less than a quarter of Audi price, She was extatic as She has had the car for seven years & didn,t want to part with it.
So tired, but so happy :) :)

So glad it worked out 👍🏻

Today I sold my beloved 1.6FSI Colour Storm. Took five minutts from I posted the advert, until it was sold. I needed 5 seats, and they rarely come up for sale in Norway, never seen a Colour Storm for sale with 5 seats, at least not in Norway. Good thing is that it went to a good home as the new owner had 3 A2´s.
New car is a Cactus, same hp, weight around 1000kg, and at least, its bonnet are made of aluminium.

Sorry to see you go. I can see the appeal of the cactus, its design is a bit 'out-there' just like the A2.

The A2 looks big! Good luck and maybe one day return to A2 ownership again...

I will certinly return to another A2 in the future, maybe as a third car. The car then shall be a Papaya Orange A2 Colour Storm 1.6FSI S-line with Open Sky, sportseats (black leather/alcantara) double DIN, electric windows front and rear, navigation, Bose, and optional cupholders back.

Ps, the A2 looks big, but the Cactus has a remarkable packaging, so it actually feels like a bigger car.

Mine also passed, 197,600 miles
Haven’t collected it yet as i had to go to work but I’m curious about smoke test results as it has been de-catted.

Will make zero difference to the smoke test results
Smoke test is measuring particulate matter
CAT does nothing either way for particulate matter where as a ecu tweak will do wonders for it, mine was 0.18 last not against limits of 0 to 3.0

Cheers. Paul

Today I drove my A2 for the fist time in 2 weeks to the MOT station and back. Pleased to report a pass with no advisories. What a amazing car I have only driven 2,225 miles since the last MOT. (note to self get out there and drive it!)

Today I noticed the front passenger headrest was round the wrong way but I just couldn't pull it out with one hand whilst depressing the latch - must be getting weak in my old age and all this Covid hibernation! So I needed a 3rd hand:

A partly reclined seat help me to pull it whilst sitting in the back.

Today, I removed an OSS from a car in 3 hours, Dont know if that is good time or bad, I had a couple of tips from Forum OSS experts @Kleynie , Thanks Ian.
Now the question is as some say fitting is the reverse of removal:D Often not :confused: only I have to remove a faulty one from another car first prior to fitting the working one, I think I may have to wait till Ian & Adam have time.

I can remove one in about 25 minutes, but that’s using a impact gun and being on a breaker where ancillaries can be cut through 😛

Steve:
My first time & minimal tools & didnt damage even one clip on the headliner, blinds or OSS not a scratch on the car.
during the 3 hours also helped Roger taking other bits off the car, had 2 coffees/fag breaks, called a friend for advice etc etc
Anyway will time myself next time without breaks etc:)
