    Greetings all,

    Thought I had better sign up after lurking for some time.

    Just bought my latest, and probably a "keeper" for some time. 2013 S8 :)

    Before I have had...
    2010 D4 A8 4.2Tdi - 7k-78k miles. Phantom Black.. never missed a beat.
    2006 S6 V10 - 5k-38k miles - Aurora Blue - Never missed a beat, but cost me a bloody fortune!
    2005 A6 V6 3.0Tdi - 6k-55k miles - Aurora Blue - the car that hooked me on the 4 rings...!

    I'll put some pics up of the monster in the A8/S8 section.
    But for now...

    Cheers

    Jim

    You say the S6 V10 Never missed a beat, but cost you a fortune?? Care to elaborate? Just curious! :confused:

    The S6.. ahhhh.
    Reasons for much £££ spendiness were as follows:-
    1) I was a quite "spirited driver" with it so munched through tyres.
    2) 2 sets of disks and pads required at the front, one set at the rear.
    3) Trip to the 'ring destroyed one set of front disks and pads and a resulting brake fire fooked the lacquer on the front rims
    4) It NEEDED (honest) a MillTek exhaust system to make the V10 sing.
    5) Petrol... lots and lots of it :superman:
