    I just love my Q - its raining like a raining thing here - lots of standing water on the road through Bilsdale (18 deaths in 10 years) hustling along a bit too quickly if I am honest, then a sweeping corner became a buttock clenching aquaplane until the Q dug deep and found some traction before we both ended up up side down in the ditch - like I say I just love my Q.

    Bilsdale in North Yorks? If so, fab road but very dangerous at times. I live near Helmsley and regularly drive that road :)

    Well done on saving your car and ass!

    its pretty much my commute these days - Malton to Hemlington - always fun but sometimes a temptation to overcook it! I do find that having 4x4 encourages enthusiastic progress making

    May of passed you unknowingly then. In Malton and on the Bilsdale road. My Audi has now gone to Aragorn who his taking great care and time in.........breaking her! lol.

    I'm not far from Helmsley (or I'm about 16miles from Malton) so if you need a hand with bits on the Audi just give me a shout dude.
