just thought i should put a few pics of my old cars on
How does the A4 compare?
(except the vauxhall )
to be honest they all have their good and bad points e.g
vectra estate diesel, excellent cruiser and drives well, bit of a slug compaired to the audi
subaru estate turbo, very fast car, quicker than the audi but no way near as good to drive as the audi
bmw 530i sport, luved the car (looking at it that is) once u drive it u want too sleep, far too comfortable and its an auto which made it even worse, but crackin car if ur in ur 40,s
vectra gsi, well this was my second one, i have a soft spot for them dont ask me why, a luv the noise, the looks and its just a great car to drive in my opinion, but once i seen and drove the audi i had to let it go!
audi when i got it
Well I'm an out and out Vauxhall man before an Audi one
me too ive had a few more than just the one on the picks
Planning to make everycar i get be either german or maybe an old skool yank

You have had your fair share of vauxhalls then? I was the same, having had an Astra and a Vectra before seeing the light, and joining the VAG fold.
I still have an Astra as a daily runner though, but i don't think i will ever move away from Audi / VW
