So, I paid Thomas a little visit today in Wahiawa to get my brakes done up and CV Boots finally put in. But, then another problem or problems, I should say...pop up. Come to find out one of my outer tie end rods is shot (so gotta replace both sides) and my Secondary (Auxilary) Waterpump is leaking coolant like a mofo. If this keeps up, I'll never be able to start the real modding. I was planning for a chip and exhaust at the end of this month, but looks like that'll have to be put on hold...damn it! Don't you just hate it when you get something fixed and then something else breaks?....it never ends. B5[s4] = [wrench] [wrench] [wrench] and more [wrench]

I feel you man, that's why I bought extended warranty to cover those unfortunate mishaps. Although Tai's doesn't do warranty work cause I called and asked him. That's why I have to take my car to Volx or Audi. I still need to have my motor mounts replaced and a belt done. But I'll probably wait till after May to do those things after I come home from vacation.

MY FRIGGEN AUXILLARY PUMP IS LEAKING LIKE A MOFO TOO!!!!!!!!

Any B5 S4 owners with 60k+ miles, do you pump while you're doing major service work or else you're gonna rip it all apart again!

Anyone interested in a stage 3 S4 for about 27k? My friend is looking to sell.

Yeah, owning an S4 is well worth the headache.

Well, extended warranty is good, but I can afford the parts..it's just the labor that kills me. Good thing Tom is a reasonable man when it comes to his labor fees.

Well, I thought it might have been the Aux WP, but I didn't know where it was, until Tom pointed it out to me. It's tucked very well under the mainfold. He and I agreed, that location was some bad(and I don't me good) engineering.

Hell anyone interested in buying my car for 27k? That way I can pick up my friends car. Getting tired of cleaning a black car. I rather have silver.

Here's a pic of the car. Keeping the BBS rims though.

Yeah, I'll prolly go in at the end of this month since my work schedule is tight. Just waiting on Thomas to gimme a call back, to let me know when my tie end rods come in. Besides the TERs and SWP. I still got some SSBLs, RS4 EMs, and my VAST poly snubmount to put in too.
