    Audi A6 2.7T Avant Quattro Tip
  1. RS3 - Saloon!

    Yep, buttons and I drive is a better combo, like the Audi MMI. Just an I drive knob and button is too complicated. Although, probably get used to it. The new 8, does it replace the 6 or sit above it, slightly longer, wider and quicker?
  2. RS3 - Saloon!

    I do like those original 8's. More character and individuality about them. You can't mistake the shape for anything else.
  3. RS3 - Saloon!

    I see BMW have stuck buttons back in their cars, and not just the idrive jobbie. That 8 was full of buttons. The display seemed a bit small.
  4. RS3 - Saloon!

    In what way?
  5. RIP: Fifth Gear TV Show

    Great, the Tiff and Plato show is back on!
  6. What could possibly go wrong?

    About time too. The amount of drivers that just sit in the middle lane..... This will hopefully educate them about what to do.
  7. "Relay Crime" reality?

    Jesus!! That is 45-48%....
  8. "Relay Crime" reality?

    Not sure if to like that or not. What is the damage?
  9. "Relay Crime" reality?

    How close does that signal boosting thing need to be to the keys?
  10. RS3 - Saloon!

    What the? what do you have the back of them?
  11. "Relay Crime" reality?

    Ford Fiesta? Why? So easy.
  12. BMW Ad Banned In the UK For Promoting Dangerous Driving

    I am sure it is the rival manufacturers' marketing teams that complain about their rivals ads!
  13. RS3 - Saloon!

    Have I missed where you said what it is? AMG of some sort?
  14. BMW Ad Banned In the UK For Promoting Dangerous Driving

    I thought I would try something. The Premier Inn advert with the wheel spinning Mindeo in a Starsky and Hutch'esque style. I complained about it for promoting dangerous driving, as they wheelspin and screech around the corner. My complaint was dismissed. They did not see it as dangerous or promoting dangerous driving. , yet it is the most brazen ad for dangerous driving. None of the specific car ads have screeching tyres and hard cornering, yet are banned. An utter farce.
  15. Tesla

    Yep, not looking good eh. And he mentions his Model Y for 2020. That is a long way off. Recent autopilot crashes won't have helped.
