ohhhhh audi wins again

right... so i guess since buying my avant i've been loving audis more, no surprise. never been a fan of bmws since every real estate agent and milf seems to own one (except m3s and m5s - respect).

used to drive a merc slk first gen - nice enough car and great summer cruiser but totally gutless.

anyway, of the "big three" german manufacturers, i think i'm sold on audis... here's another reason why

proper size, offset and style. well done - not medium rare.

too much win for golf

yesss... one neat euro trick is to go for the big wheel OEM swap from another "related" manufacturer. for example, porsche wheels on a VW/Audi, or in this case, amg/mercedes wheels on a golf. helps a lot if you already share stud patterns, otherwise things get a little tricky - but end result is worth it. nice one!

so everyone's heard of the frankenstein honda thing, swap in a vtec head onto a big displacement nonvtec engine. Sounds hard, but easy compared to stuffing an RB26DETT into an FD engine bay.

With that monster single snail bolted on the the RB though, fitting the hood back on will be a challenge. Leave it off I say, and watch out for small children being sucked through the engine.
