Glimpsed over at a very nice looking silvery/grey A2 this morning on a 'W' plate, the plate was old but the car was spanking new, but what really caught my eye was the small rectangular rear and front grill badge, I'm sure I saw 'Quattro'

Is this a wannabee, or are there really A2 Quattro's out there ! laugh.gif

Quick lesson for Drillbob on british registrations (or licence plates tongue.gif)........

Since I think 1961 the driving licencing authority has issued plates to owners that not only identify the year of registration but also where the vehicle was registered.

My first car had the number NKX 949D

N was random

KX depicted where the car was registered, these 2 letters were not abbreviated in the slightest to reflect the location of the cars actual palce of registration, for example KX was in fact a place called 'Slough'

949 was a random number

and D was the year of registration, in this case my car was first registered in 1966 (when England won the world cup, WHAAHAAAYYYYY)............, however due to the arse about face system 'D' could also have been 1965 or 1966 as the registration year went from August 31st and not January ???

In the 80's the system reversed,so that the plate D949 NKX would have been registered in 1985 or 1986.

In 2000 we removed the alpha pre-fix and went for an alpha numeric system - but I ain't gonna try and explain that one mate.... NONO3.GIFNONO3.GIFNONO3.GIF

So a 'W' plate would have belonged to car first registered in 2000.

The current owner of the A2 Whateveritis had transferred this plate from a older car to the present one.

Simple eh crazy.gif

I guess that the very earliest A2 in the UK could have been a 'W' reg, but I don't think that they were available to the public at that time. As for quattro - I don't believe that Audi have any intention of making an A2 with 4wd. So, I guess that this was a 'wanabee', or an A2 which had been substantially modded.

However, I wouldn't say no to an A2 TDi with quattro (especially the new 90PS version) - even on a dry road it is very easy to provoke loss of traction.

It could have been this Peter, so you may well be right. Fancy sticking on a Quattro badge when it obviously ain't !

Mind you, the car looked so clean and neat, it did'nt need any wannabee badges at all smashfreakB.gif

nah, more chavtastic than that. quad exhausts and bodykits and 18" alloys. they look a bit naff actually. was looking at an a2 again after the clio goes. the a4 will be for every other day i think. still need a small diesel for a runaround. found a silver 52 plate 1.4tdi se with 80k on the clock for £6k. will get more off cos i'm staff. what do you think?

its got climate control, electric front windows and alloys. the spec isn't too much of an issue this time around cos the a4 is pretty much fully loaded. gonna change the stereo and the wheels though.no sunroof either. really good nick for the mileage, only a couple of stonechips and a scuff on the rear wheel.
