    Bumped into one of my good friends at a wedding who I met back in my Uni days, he was always a bit of an entrepreneur, coming up with crazy ideas to make money and he promised himself he would make a million quid by the time he hit 30.
    I think he finally made it at 32, 2 years late, but he's got there! And to treat himself, he purchased himself an Audi S5 is Sprint Blue (which I'm due a testdrive :)) and he also had the reg. plate S5 XXX(his initials) on retention before the car came out, so confident he is of making his millions.
    Then he told me yesterday that he brought himself a new reg plate on Monday to go on the car, it reads his last name and he'd been eyeing it up for the last few years... "how much did you pay for the plate" I asked? His reply "Twelve thou-sand pounds!", "twelve grand?!??, are you mad?" was my reply.
    Anyways, I'm going to have a blast in this S5 of his, sporting a reg plate which is worth more than my car sometime soon, he must be doing well...

    I told him he should have got an RS4 for the price he paid for the S5 with all the bells and whistles, he said the interior is nicer in the S5, I've sat in Chris's RS4 Avant at GTI Inters and it was very lush, so I'm keen to see what all the fuss is about his S5 interior.
    He also runs a Merc R-Class for work duty, and those are not cheap neither...

    As for what he does, I've never actually got round to asking him, but it's probably classified for mortals like myself, he's a good friend though, lending me a Ferrari 360M for a few hours when he had one for a month! :racer:
