After working my ass off for 6 months decided to treat myself to a new car early December and got rid of the BMW and the Toyota we currently had. I knew i wanted to try 4wd for a change, but was unsure which way to go, go japanese for the performance or try an audi for something a bit more civilsed.
After looking at many cars and getting a few hints and tips from here (thanks guys) I found the exact car i was after, and a bit of haggling bought just after the new year and picked up just Saturday there.
After a great weekend driving and testing the quattro in appalling road conditions, i am of the opinion that it was a stunning choice.
Unfortunately, fate did not look kindly at me rediscovering the car bug, (which has not been felt since me owning a Type R), and took action in the form of Mr White Transit Man .
The driver was completely at fault as i had stopped in a queue of traffic and went straight into the back of me, though looks as though he tried to avoid me. He apologised straight away and claimed he skidded, given that i had stopped, he was either speeding (in a 40 zone) or not paying attention. The only good news was that our son was not in the car having dropped him off minutes before. Also, i had left enough distance between myself and the car in front so i didnt hit the him so my insurance are happy to pass ALL costs onto the other driver. My wife and i both had to go hospital and are back home now though i need to take a few days off work having had x-rays on my neck as i lost feeling in my right arm. Reckon this was caused as i had my right hand on the wheel and must have clenched it to protect myself.
Not quite the first pictures i had anticipated posting.
