    Saw it at the weekend and all I could keep saying to the dealer was...."Awesome"....."Awesome"

    I had the Autoglym Lifeshine treatment put on it at the dealers and WOW very very very shiny!!! Works well on the Misano Red.

    2 hours 50 minutes.....

    Looks like we won't see you around on the forum for a while after mid-day today then... you'll be taking your new baby out as much as you can with that fine smell of new car interior, and your AutoGlym shiny outside.... don't drive her too hard at first though... get to know her gently /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    HY 05, GOOD-BY 04 how fitting /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif

    It looks great, Eef! Congratulations on letting go of the steering wheel long enough to type and post a pic!!

    The S-Line chassis, though only 1cm lower than Sport, does make a visual difference.

    Misano Red, won't be too many of those around.

    Congrats!!

    -Ben.

    Hehe, yeah good aren't they. You pay £1600 for a body kit and they don't even sort the exhaust for you. Off to Powerflow as soon as I can fit it in to get the new shiny (longer) tail pipes.

    Nice pics, and misano RED looks sooooo much better in the flesh. Yeh thought the bodykit price included the ( 100 quid ) exaust extensions !

    Just think of all those empty roads at midnight, ENJOY. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif

    Eeef, Congrats on the new addition. Bloody good looking motor. The alloys, to me, are the fine icing on a fine cake made by the finest cook in the finest land who went to the finest cake cooking school.

    People have to stop posting pictures of their cars I'm supposed to be doing coursework. It's 100 words then check out the forum, another 100 words check audi site configure another car and look at the forum, another 100 words......so on so forth.

    have booked 48hr test drive of SPBK next weekend. After that who knows. Took the other half to the garage on Sunday, she looked through the window and the first thing out of her mouth was "only half a hand brake, if we are going to pay that much money for a car i want a longer handbrake"!
