    Joining the B9 club

    I went for the 35TFSI S-tronic. I’m coming from a Mitsubishi PHEV which was a thoroughly disappointing ownership experience and put me off hybrid tech. Before that a BMW320xd touring And before that VW Golf R, and a VW Golf GTi (which were both fantastic cars!)

    Joining the B9 club

    After years away from the brand, I’m pleased to say that this week I’ll take delivery of a new A4 Avant Black Edition. It’s nice to be back! I had to go for Mythos Black in the end because of the crazy delays on the grey I’d ordered, but chuffed either way. And to top it off, got a road trip...

    Leaving Audi....

    So, the time's come to leave the brand. After nine-ish years of Audi Ownership, i'm jumping (to a not very far away!) ship... I pick up the replacement golf gti tomorrow and I can't wait. Aside from going back to petrol, I am pleased to be leaving Audi as a brand as, frankly, I'm sick of the...

    Chips away, Any good??

    Yeah, I'm over in Wortley, so not far at all. I was lucky in a sense, was going to the car, and there's this couple asking if I drive a white Audi. "Uh oh" I thought. They'd seen this nob in a Peugeot scrape up the side trying to get into the next space, but got his reg. As we were talking I...

    Chips away, Any good??

    Wish I'd have known that a few weeks ago, I had some little student tosser scrape the side of my A3 in Woodhouse Lane. Took a punt on a local garage and they did a decent job, but wish I'd had found someone proper :)

    Buy, Lease or Loan

    This is a big concern, i wonder if getting screwed on handing it back is common practice?

    Buy, Lease or Loan

    Yeh my mate said the same,lol. He actually questioned whether the A1 is a girls car, haha. I suppose my life's changed the past few years, I'm no longer spending ages cleaning or tinkering with the car and I do like the idea of a new car every few years - purely that its covered by warranty...

    drink driving details wrong.

    Whilst I never agreed with a zero limit, that actually makes sense. What about the morning after?

    drink driving details wrong.

    Drink driving ruins lives, no doubt. But does it make a guy a wrongdoer if he's drunk the wrong sort of lager? Had a single pint over? Not metabolised the alcohol as normal? Maybe his BAC is still high the morning after? I think the point is that there's many shades of grey here and whilst I...

    Microsoft Office

    To note, getting a student license and using it yourself violates their license and is just as dodgy as torrenting a copy. And the home user programme is only licensed as long as you're eligible, so it's no walk in the park either. Open office is okay, but it's nowhere near as polished (I tried...

    Flash for cash!

    Absolute nobs. A sick minority making our lives a bit less liveable with each twatish act. To the anyone who's gonna bash these people, I hope I am on your jury, or can be a favourable witness.

    Buy, Lease or Loan

    I'm looking for opinions or those that have actually done the maths: I've always had 2nd hand cars, my old A3 8L I had for years and loved. I bought my current car new for £18k ish because the 8P was a run out model. Webuyanycar will give me £13750 for it today which is probably a rubbish...

    Need Advice about getting a full refund for my car.

    Hey, Sorry to hear of the issues with your car. I'm in Leeds, too and I wondered, did you actually get the car from the Audi dealer (presumably in Leeds)? Ive got family who've had serious issues with cars left with them, and had a few minor issues with them myself when they've been doing...
