Goodbye (Again)

When I bought the Audi S3 back in 2005, I wasn’t offered a very good price for the Rallye as a trade in so I gifted it to my sister. She owned it from May 2005 to about March 2008 when it was back in Norfolk in the Norwich area. It was a bit tired towards the end and need a lot of work doing that she couldn’t afford so it was sold on.

It stayed in East Anglia, eventually ending up in the hands of Simon Hatfield who I got to know quite well though the 106 Rallye Register Owners’ Club. Simone contacted me to send some pics of the car recently. It had reached such a state that it wasn’t economically viable to try and keep it going, so it was stripped for parts and scrapped. A sad ending.

End of Days

Goodbye Rallye

So after many years of happy ownership, a few speeding tickets, quite a bit of fettling (like that time the ignition key was stuck in the rear book lock at a 24hr mountain bike race) and some great driving, I’ve decided it’s time to sell the Rallye. New job, more disposable income, I fancy an Audi S3!

So it’s up for sale, hopefully it’ll go to a good home!

Turns out that the Rallye is a great vehicle for getting to the Mountain Bike races. Over the years it’s done it’s duties getting various buddies to the race venues around the country. This weekend just gone it was the SAAB Salomon Mountain Mayhem at Eastnor Castle in the Malverns.

That’s rather loud

The M62 out of Manchester claimed the stock exhaust today. The back box dropped off at 70mph on the inside lane. The car without it is rather loud. Time for a stainless steel Peugeot Sport exhaust.

It’s back

So six months after our encounter with a ditch a train ride home and a lift to the garage the following day reunited me with the Rallye. It’d taken a while to save up £1,500 to refurbish it. New body panels, paintwork, time on a chassis jig. The block was okay, but as new second hand parts had been available, over £200 had gone on a new oil cooler. At the same time I’d had a pair of 15″ Speedline alloys off a 205 1.9 GTI were painted in white and fitted with Yokohama A048s. The car was back and better than ever.
