Mid-life crisis II has arrived

Post by thommo » Wed Feb 06, 2019 12:11 am

Two, maybe three, years since I started pining for my Audi A4 Avant replacement, it has arrived. RS4, white, carbon interior, black pack with most of the options and a panoramic roof(which proved to be the major selling point for Mrs T).
Just loving the sound when it fires up. Spent the last two weeks trying to explore all the various driver options + radio, satnav, phone cos I’ve never hd such a sophisticated motor before.
Lots of things still to discover but clearly the fuel pumps will be taking a hammering. I now use cash on alternate Premium fill-ups in the hope that Mrs T doesn’t work out via credit card bills how much juice it slurps.
Having said that, she is a convert to the ease of the auto box. Lots of fun to be had and Christ the sound when you give it full welly.

In a similar way to a Roller, does it come with a removable bat concealed in the door?

:lol:

Steer clear of Bradford, even with a concealed bat :angel:

Love it :cool: really happy you finally got one after lusting after one for so long.

I considered one when downsizing from the enormous E class wagon but ended up staying Merc as I was seduced by the noise and general hooligan demeanour of the C63S wagon.

I had a faithful A4 Avant which did everything I needed it to do, super low running costs and only one repair in 80k miles. Looked like new when it went. It was very sensible and economical, I somehow don't thinks yours will be either of those things.
