    If you were asked to consider going to work in Moscow for a couple of years, what sort of car would you get/take to use out there?

    I can't contemplate life without a car but think that a bright blue S3 would really be asking for trouble.

    I think something large, cheap, tough, powerful and unflashy would be the answer. An old G-Wagon?

    Any thoughts?

    I wouldn't want the Russian Army to think I was up to no good and shell me or something equally regrettable!

    I think Moscow is fine provided you leave ostentatious displays of wealth to those who can afford the security.
