    Are you not selling up then? What were you thinking of selling it for? You hinted it was something special!!

    New painted bits look nice! Have you been rolling without a bumper all this time? :)

    I do like your car a lot.

    cheers mate, appreciate the comments.

    was seriously considering selling for a b6 s4 avant, gonna hold out for now though as got a wedding & holiday in july to pay for still.

    after that, i'm thinking i'm going to miss the s4 and go straight for its bigger brother (or cousin?)

    rolling without the bumper for near 3 weeks now,

    Oooh, nice! The S4's are nice, very nice. The RS4's are a different animal though. I would love an RS4/6.

    Is it your wedding you're paying for? ha! I'm so glad that's allover and done with for me, they're rather expensive events. We did ours on a shoestring budget as we were both students at the time, madness!

    Cheers guys.

    yeah, really feeling the C6 S6 the now, ideally this will be the next motor if all goes to plan (finish up a perm job on friday that i've been doing for 10 years to start a 4 month contract as a consultant, big gamble but as i say, if it works out it'll be well worth it)

    we are going to cyprus to get married, just thought it'd be a nice small thing for us, our 3 kids & our mums. its now turned into a 22 people affair so probably not any cheaper!

    i'm getting a single line import plate made up by a mate for normal daily use, you'll be able to do that too with your 5 digit :)

    will get one for the front too, not sure if i'll use it though?

    will probably get some us pressed plates for 'show' use
