    Didnt manage to get a pic but noticed a yellow s4 at the show today with like a shark mouth front graphic thing , i noticed some carbon intercooler intakes and some other bits including a vast performance sticker . Then i noticed it was a left hand drive and had a american number plate at the rear . Seems a long way to come ?

    That's Sparky's Imola S4.

    He didn't come solely for Donnington, he's currently based in the UK.

    Yeah, that sounds like it's Sparky's S4. He was supposed to be coming to Elsecar with us, but decided he was going to ponce around at Donny instead!

    He's also got a 1.8T avant and another S4 Avant back in the US.

    He's a member of our club (vuucult.com) and is based in Hull (most of the time).

    Nice motor... :cool:

    I think Andy was surprised, to see a VAST car here in LHD, as it's obviously an American car, rather than a German one.

    So, it's very far from home, I think that's why he was a bit shocked.
