    And like other identical parts used in both, is the VW one cheaper than the Audi one?o_O

    Is there a Skoda part number, which could be even cheaper? ;)

    I added weathershields to my Beetle - got them from the US.
    Next up will be changing the arm rests from grubby fabric to leather (they are on their way) and the new speakers arrived in the mail for front and back.
    Might do that Sunday if the arm rest covers arrive tomorrow.

    I replaced the Coil pack I broke while replacing the spark plugs on the Up! I now have the correct puller on its way. The screwdriver I was using had the incorrect VW part number on for the job. Man those coil pacs grip on the spark plug. I got 2 out by pulling with constant pressure with my hand but one wouldnt budge so extraction tool part number "Stanley" deployed and tore the rubber sheath.

    No sometimes the identical Audi part is cheaper. I used to buy genuine batteries. Sometimes the Audi was $100 cheaper.

    The daily driver 84 Landcruiser stopped the other night. Nearly home after our monthly cinema night and the engine stopped dead. Friend following us threw a rope and got us home. Had a look next morning and fuseable link has unlinked. Dead short somewhere! Will follow the wire next fine day. Schmetterling promoted to daily driver!

    I've done a labour swap with my bus and a mates Grandfathers HR Holden for labour skills. The old girl hadn't run in many years and all he wanted was to be able to move it around. The head had seized valves and more rust and an Australian build Splitty.
    I pulled it down and gave the old girl a rebirth. I love the early Holden's, will work on them anytime i can so this was a pleasure and this car is a 70k mile survivor.

    Now I'm waiting for my bus to be blocked and ready for paint.

    A mate of mine has just restored his grandma's HR X2. Used it for his daughters wedding a week ago. Can't get the smile off his face.
