cant you get rid of the one your girl bought you and get another one? and when she sees it, just tell her its the one she bought u!

but shes a keeper! usually girls are jealous of cars cuz they get too much attention (and money) sometimes.

^^^that is easily offset by modding your girl's car with her money.

pretty taboo selling a gift from anyone let alone your main squeze. im shure you know her better then anyone, but selling it would would be inconcevable for most women. could you pull off a "this was wonderfull honey but it wont fit.". then if you get one later of relatively the same size you could mention how its a bit thinner...?

Those ebay cores are actually half way decent, a few people I know are running them and very happy w/ them. I'm going to get one eventually as well..

I have one, a smaller one actually and it's perfect for what I need. no problems here.

Well you can always come out for IDRC at Fontana next weekend to buy my old one.

Finding a woman to help mod your car is very hard, finding one that will also support your racing is even harder.[:D]

Whats wrong with it? Looks alittle small but it is a bar/plate so thats a good thing. The construction on that looks very similar to my Racetec gen2.

Put it on the car, and a little later, buy the one you like and tell her it's the same one. She'll never know, no one will be hurt. [:D]

The last thing you want to do is hurt her feelings about what she bought you, because then you'll never get another car part again.

I'v been married 19 years, and to this day have never received a gift as cool as that, so you know she's a keeper, so if a little fib will keep all happy, then you know what you have to do. [up]

Dude think that out. Would you tell your girl you ditched her gift because you found a thinner one...

Well that would have to be one that is both of those and willing to go racing with you, mine only does the first 2. But then she did just pop out a son for me.

well the intercooler is in and it is a 3 inch core. the boost is 2psi higher then before and it cools very nicely. it turned out for the better anyway i guess

WOW! Im impressed she even knew what an intercooler was let alone searched out and bought you one. Obviously shes been listening to your Psycho-Audi babblings well enough to know what you want and like. Like they said. put it on the car then buy one behind her back stick it on and ditch the one she got. but never ever tell her.
Awesome thought though! kick-ass girl. She clearly loves the shit outta you and shes loaded!!! When yer done with her send her my way!!! j/k
I find it hilarious when my girl notices Modded Audis and points out kits and individual modifications. She knows the names of all the generations of A4s and can tell the dif between sport/non sport/ ultrasport, blah, blah, blah. Heck yesterday I dropped in on my mechanic to say hello and she was there, she pointed out an A4 and said how she knew it was a V6 because of the chrome trim around the windows and wheels. LOL man I gotta stop talking car stuff to her, but it envelopes my life!!! AAAHHHH!!!!

haha, its funny how whenever i see an A4 i run through my mind what it is, ie "b5, 1998/1999 tail lights, small side blinker, no audi badge on fender, non sport, 2.8 trim and wheels, 2 piece headlights....."


congrats on the intercooler.. hopefully it is better than you expected.

she has actually been learining alont from me. she was the one who also bought my watermeth kit which im in love with. she has been learning alot and know the consept of what does what. i was suprised she even knew how to joke about the who vag thing hence my sig. and yes she in beyond in love with me. she buys herself lots of things too but many of them support me to (boyshorts and fake tittays). lol i came home the other day and she left me a not on the comp that said "here is my credit card make my car look good" i went ahead and got her some springs and wheel spacers for her bmw. and now she is looking at getting a newer audi. and no she is not a stripper. shes a cocktail waitress and in vegas they are the most paid people.

hahahahahhaah Audi babblings! im right there w/ ya!

Shes a keeper man as they all said.

My girl rebuilt my head (and other head :)
but im gonna return the favor w/ a gift later on, as pac said..... i know a few people doing just fine on those ebay bar and plates...but yes the pressure drop is the main thing..... my advice is just run it...then if its worth it later swap it, she'll never know
