As some of you know, I went to the SouthFlorida GTG on the 28th. I was supposed to leave town on Friday AM, but because of a broken Raxles CV axle on Thrusday night, I got set back until 4pm Friday. I made it into Florida by 2am, and still went to the GTG.

The weekend was great, lots of great people, and the Miami crew was VERY nice to let me crash. Thanks to lbpassat (Larry) :thumbup: for letting me invade his house Friday night. Then Saturday was a "blast". The people were great. APR didnt know SH!T about my car. They were unprepared... didnt have a drill to install my switch for the different programs for my ECU. I wanted 91 and 100 octane. Some how, they got 2 stock programs, and who knows what other programs. So, that has to be sent to them to get fixed. ONE reason I didnt want to ship to them in the 1st place was Id be out of a car for a week or so.

Then, today on my way home I was supposed to be home at about 4-5, and be at class by 6 to take a make up test and study for my final exams. Well, the car broke down. Its either the crappy programs from APR, or its bad fuel. Or a mixture of the two. So, I called my mom and step dad, and the step dad came out with the truck and a tow dollie. I was about an hours away from home, thank God not any further. So, we get the car up on the dolly, and then I hear a CRUNCH. Uopps, there goes the nice RS4 bumper. On each side in front of the wheels, there are large hooks that protrude from the ramps. They both gouged the front of my bumper. oN the drivers side, left a nice 3"+ hole in the bumper. On the passenger side, just slight FG damage. So, that leaves me a new project. FG and bondo project.

So, that was my sh!tty weekend.
