    Audi A6 2.7T Avant Quattro Tip
  1. Football results today

    Ok, so maybe Aguero isn't needed.....
  2. S8 V10 findings after a few weeks of ownership

    This fate probably awaits SK when he gets older..... Poor old bugger!! Sad people vandalising the car. Looks like CCTV will be needed.
  3. S8 V10 findings after a few weeks of ownership

    What have I missed?
  4. Football results today

    7th? Since 2015? Didn't realise that. The media are too busy with Watford, Palace and Leeds manager roundabouts.
  5. You could be getting moisture in on the contacts in the rear light cluster. Causing poor connection and increasing the resistance making the car register different values. My mate's 57 plate A6 Le Mans had the light issues. He cleaned the connectors and it was OK. But had to keep doing it. one of the moisture seals might be poor.... Hope that helps.
  6. S8 V10 findings after a few weeks of ownership

    Very happy camper!!
  7. New pants please

    That is a very streamlined A3. That Indian lad on the Pug advert would be proud. Maybe the driver thought that straight would stay straight for the next 200 miles?
  8. S8 V10 findings after a few weeks of ownership

    I drove down to Cornwall, 315 odd miles. On a Monday. I went from Peterborough to Northampton to Oxford to Burford to Cirencester and Tetbury to the M4, the M5 and the A30. Took about 5 hours and a stop, no traffic!!! filled the car up, and have just filled it again. 25 mpg.... was a gentle cruise along the lovely A & B roads to the M4, but quite impressive mpg... I drove through the most fantastic Oxfordshire/Cotswolds village of Bibury. Wow!!! Lots of coaches of Chinese tourists and Chinese tourists with cameras wondering around clicking! Tetbury is pretty damn quaint too. If you can, drive through Bibury.
  9. I quite like the look of the egg. But the sound isn't a patch on the Chiron. Bloody impressive linear acceleration graph !!!!
  10. Monarch (financial trouble bewing?)

    Jesus... Poor feckers... must be gutted. Hope you paid for your flights on a credit card Mr Booster... Shame Monarxh couldn't get the full benefit of RA's woes. Although, that would only be temporary. Have EasyJet, Wizz et al put their prices up in the routes where RA have cancelled flights?
  11. Monarch (financial trouble bewing?)

    They didn't manage to turn the business around then. At least the pilots will have options.... Ryanair will be able to grab good and well trained pilots!
  12. MOTs in older cars

    Does that mean it's been crashed and is sitting in a Copart compound somewhere?
  13. New Audi A8 owner

    Hello.... We have loads of info on the 2000 A8 in the A8 forum area in the Audi section. Lots of stuff about getting your gearbox oil changed to cam belt changes to the RNS stuff, wheels, exhausts etc etc. Happy reading!
  14. Football results today

    Poor Man City... Aguero in searing form, and usually he would injure himself on the field, about now. However, this time he has injured himself in a car crash! We'll see how the City squad respond. It's not as if they are short of talent.....
  15. M2 or Macan

    What engine in the Macan? Have heard the V6 petrol in the Macan and it sounds divine!!! Slightly more so than the BMW. But it is a close run thing....
