    Thought it was a good idea to take the A5 across to France, and rather than take the ferry the tunnel seemed a better option.

    Whilst in the queue to drive into the train I was directed to the slightly narrower upstairs section. Then came the sickening moment as I caught the front passenger alloy on the metal lined kerb. The missus sniggered and we didn't speak again until south of Le Mans.

    Oh well I guess there's still the speeding fines to look forward too.

    I don't think the guy directing the traffic was an Audi enthusiast!

    Love the fact that if there's any hint of an epic fail in your post title you get a lot more views!

    This is tame, 7 posts in 20 minutes is nothing.

    Could have had your car taken away for speeding,so you got off lightly. Remember next time to book the carriages for Trucks as they have alot more room obviously.
