It happened to be a dark grey metallic, not too different to the Rex it replaces.

Good choice of colour... I'm fed up with VW silver.

Congratulations on the new ride :) A certain amount of relief to be off the rotary ?

 

I find myself facing the prospect of selling the Lexus soon and getting another Estate so i might look at something similar as i enjoyed my A4 Avant and served me well.

Did the Audi miss the emissions scandal?

If you are asking about mine - no idea. I could see Diesel was about to take a kick in the balls so i offloaded ASAP and jumped into a petrol hybrid (Lexus). I think it probably would have been effected though as it was a 2ltr TDI.

I was very nervous about starting the rotary hot or cold and when it stalled in traffic and wouldn't restart, well...
I realised it had gone too far when I started the Audi and couldn't hear the starter, wasn't sure it was running!
Pickup is tomorrow, so barring stupid last minute isssues, I'm really eager to get on it

Waz isn't a gold member so doesn't have that privilege.

 

Try flickr, they're pretty good.

I don't anymore, i've lost the will to live when it comes up uploading and sorting out the blog. Photobucket are charged with ruining the internet and forums globally. Hateful company and i hope they implode due to their greed.
