    I had my first breakdown today...

    A flat tyre! Luckily I bought a couple the other day!

    I really like this thing, it’s amazing how differently it behaves depending what mode you put it in.

    I’ve done over 2k miles in it already and it’s averaging 44mpg!

    I have also put a set of 20” wheels and a “cool” number plate on it!!

    Yea I think it’s a bit understated compared to all the in your face, massive bodykit, s line stuff that everyone wants.

    Almost two years down the line and the big B is still treating me well! It’s clocked up 109k miles (not too many this year due to starting a new business and not having to drive so many miles).

    Honestly don’t know what I’ll eventually replace it with, a newer one or maybe a Ferrari FF if I win the lottery!!

    Over 15000 faultless miles done in the Audi already, what a great car!

    Thinking about selling it and getting a new car down the lease route though, might look at a GLC or E class, maybe a Q5, A6 or A8 really not too sure what to go with!

    Pretty much in the position where I can get something brand new - I’m thinking of putting it through my business so really considering something hybrid (BIK efficient) hence the e class and q5 being on the list.

    I went with diesel in the end. The ideal would have been a Q5 hybrid but they are all selling within days and at a premium. I feel that I got a very good price on this one, it’s a 2017 with 1 owner and 30k miles... Funnily enough from my local Bentley dealership.

    It needs the windows tinting and maybe some bigger alloys but I can’t wait to pick it up! F7ED3512-2911-4A02-94C1-CA487E14D770.jpeg
