The rocco is still down the side of my house. As for good money in architecture its a bit of an odd one. If you are top dawg like my GF's mum and dad are you could end up taking home 100k+ a year but thats more for been a good buisiness man/woman. The actuall architectrural work pays shit for the amound of effort put in. You do more years at uni than a doctor and then when you come out you will be on 20k which climbs over the years to around 50k if you end up been head designer in a practice. So by the time you are thinking about retiring you are on the money that you thought you would be on from the start

No competition here. I'm way better than kai!

In all honesty kai works for me. He does our polishing.

By the way if you see my g60 wheels today please don't take those as a measure of my work! They were done in about 20 mins!

Well it has so far gone on buying it, 3 sets of alloys, stainless exhaust, coilovers, insuring, taxing, setting up k-jet and all the other bits.

Plus rent and trips for me and the Mrs to Milan and Amsterdam.

Brake conversion and wing spray are next on the list.

Then I may think about more power somehow.

Oh and saving to insure it/put it through an MOT/tax it again.

Haha yeah I know, but its rubbing already. Gonna get something to treat the arches and then take the arch covers off, maybe then think about rolling them. Yeah Liam keeps pestering me to roll them!

Also my tyres are too fat
