    Audi A6 2.7T Avant Quattro Tip
  1. BMW M2 Competition

    My S8 was in the Audi shop for it's MOT, so I looked around the shiny showroom and looked at the S3 saloon. I opened the rear doors and couldn't believe how little room there was in the back. The front seat didn't look overly far back, but it was inclined back at quite an angle. plus, the saloon boot will be less usable that the Golf R boot in many cases.
  2. New pants please

    Was expecting it, but NOT through that wafer thin gap!!!
  3. Ebay oddity / fraud

    I cannot see it. DA62 is the beginning of the plate (or was)
  4. Ebay oddity / fraud

    I saw my current S8 up in eBay twice after I bought it. Same photos (hence the recognition) but the car was now in Denmark.... Dodgy bastards. I reported it to eBay and it took them a few to remove each time. A bit slow and a bit poor...
  5. RS3 - Saloon!

    Bloody hell!!!
  6. New pants please

    What the hell happened to make him lose control of the bike?
  7. RS3 - Saloon!

    £43k? WTF?
  8. Electric cars. And tax?

    We are not citizens of Brunei. A disposal tax would limit the second hand car price, but then again, they won't care as long as it is paid. Would certainly limit the desirability in the market. Car companies will need to do something about the disposal of. Also, city councils might bring in more congestion charging zones and/or no private vehicle zones and they will probably charge all vehicles entering them depending upon the hours. The irony being they'll allow busses, coaches, taxis and delivery vehicles in - which are usually the most polluting.
  9. My future hearse.

    For when I go see Satan Would need to be loud though.
  10. RS3 - Saloon!

    But would you have kept it long enough for appreciation or did they shoot up straight away?
  11. F1's 'Halo' cockpit is coming in 2017

    You never know where inspiration will co e from next.
  12. RS3 - Saloon!

    That is how I approached my S8 purchase. No regrets.
  13. New 2nd Hand car time, Signum size

    And getting bigger at each turn. Nothing 'mini' about them. I am sure Sir Ignossi (so) is turning in his grave at the size of the b4stard things. You need a 4 door at least 3 series size of bigger.
  14. New pants please

    Look at the wings on some of them, shaking!!! Look at the angles when they touch down!!! My rosairy beads would be rosairy washers by the time some of them landed....
  15. Post a pic of your car

    Stunning colour Mr Thorburn!!! Quite like the Evora. Good choice!
