Got rid of the Golf today & picked up the A4 in some of the worst weather this year so got to test it out well. Took a drive down to Lyme Regis to see the very rough sea's and tested the Quattro's power and grip on a couple of very steep hills out of the town from the beach where the Golf normally scrabbled for grip and bogged down due to the traction control (often like that in the dry never mind torrential rain), well decided to put foot to the floor to test it out and got to the top of the hills with a big grin on my face, not a whiff of slippage or flashing traction control lights, just a b@llocking from the missus for flying up the hill (was within speed limit, told her i was trying out the traction :thumbsup. Loving the car, nice to enjoy driving a car again, just need to learn to drive a petrol again. Must say the engine is much smoother than the Golf tdi was, it happily sat in 6th gear while cruising along with the other traffic at 40mph, whereas the golf didnt like 6th below 60/65mph. Missus is well happy with the heated seats and dual aircon as she always wants it hotter than me.
