Did I mention that after 2002 (and some '03's) they abandoned the V-6
bi-turbo concept an started doing things the American way...like
dropping in big 4.2 litre V-8's? Me... I like 2 banks of 3 with their
There is nothing wrong with that. "The SHO is powered by Ford's new
EcoBoost 3.5L V6 engine. The twin-turbocharged, gasoline direct
injection power plant has 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque."
REEEEspectable indeed. Besides, that thing handles admirably.
That is as competent a car as the Hyundai Genesis. Now did *I* just
Still... both Ford and Hyundai need to learn a few things about style,
fit and finish, and 'feel'....and 'smell'.
There really isn't much that messes with an S4 Audi for the money.
Did you really just say that? Huh? Huh? LOL
Buying them is not too too bad, making them run like a bunny and
keeping them running like a bunny costs lots. LOTS.
I had just written a comment about you and your Audi and decided that you
may have had the 1 in 1,000,000,000,000 which gave reliable and inexpensive
service. Then I read this comment and deleted my comment. ;~) Had 2 VW's
with Audi parts all over them... Probably the most unreliable and most
expensive to maintain vehicles my wife and I have ever owned. Cool cars
though, when they were not in the shop.

You'd think they were designed and built by a Brit, maybe Lucas, eh?
VWs have never darkened my driveway, literally or otherwise. ;)
In order that people may be happy in their work, these three things are
needed: They must be fit for it. They must not do too much of it. And
they must have a sense of success in it.

Sounds like my Sterling. Only British auto I will ever own.
Had an uncle who was into Audi's. He enjoyed working on cars though, so I
guess they provided him with more opportunity to do so than other brands
There is never a situation where having more rounds is a disadvantage
IIRC Forrest makes blades for some of the Festools saws. Either way the
Festool blades seem to be reasonably priced for the quality you are getting.
Keep in mind that "IMHO" $40 $70 for a blade is reasonable. You can find $5
blades for the common circular saw but you sacrifice cut quality when you
use those saws.
Freud also make very nice metric blades - I have one in my tiny
protool saw. From memory another italian company also makes high
quality metric blades suitble for festool/protool.
I got the protool saw in a deal when buying the older style festool
bench in a runout. The only critisism that I have is with the adapter
that matches it to festool track - it puts the sawblade about 10mm to
the right of the track so I can't line up just using the edge.
