    Good luck with it mate! Just remember the service is everything and word of mouth goes a long long way.
    Things to do: Lower on coilovers, spacers, front end respray and a full correctional detail!

    Cool mate. It is a 2 wheeler at the back? What max load can you get on it?
    Do you need driving license cat B or higher?
    Will be looking for similar option soon but was thinking about going 4x4 + trailer route.
    Personal use only though.

    a word for the wise, make sure the winch is strong and well bolted to the truck, i see a winch get ripped off a truck once and it ended in tears when it landed on the bonnet of the car it was loading,

    otherwise, good luck, well done, you can always specialise in Audi Quattros as they cant be spec lifted, flat beds only!

    The Winch I have on the recovery is very strong and well bolted to the recovery and it pulled my S4 very smooth without any problems so I hope I don't get that sort of problem with my Winch
