    Im back, picking it up soon

    I was on here a few years back when we had our A4 B8. I sold that and replaced it with a BMW 645 convertible. Lovely car, but still had an urge for an Audi S5, so in the hunt for an S5, I fell for a 3 year old A6 S line, and a deal was done! Engine is a drop, coming from the rumble of the V8...

    Clamped For Having No Tax On Trade Plates

    Just up from a dealership near me earlier, barely back from a test drive, and the DVLA pounced and clamped it for having no tax, even tho the trade plates are clearly on show! (had one hanging on the back). Made me chuckle! (I didnt test drive it btw! I was browsing other cars)
