    Buying an S5 - advice please

    Hello, I'm currently looking at aquiring a used S5 auto & wanted to ask a few questions & get some feedback from other owners. I would be looking at a 2007/8 but the current brochure states that the S5 comes with tiptronic as opposed to s-tronic (DSG), other web searches talk about s-tronic...

    The General Public

    I know exactly what you mean, quite often these scenarios happen to me over parking aswell. Only yesterday I decided to take the family out to Alexander Palace, so on finding a paking space I indicated, moved forward to reverse park in. As I turned round, some complete wank3r shot accross from...

    Question Time

    Interesting read but the article also states: "That nearly one quarter of British people might vote for a neo-Nazi party with views inimical to democracy, human rights and common decency is truly appalling. "

    Cracked mirror - stained paint

    My wife's Lexus suffered a shattered wing mirror, as a result the phosphoric gel which is used to dimm the mirror in bright light has leaked out and stained the door with green patches. I managed to clean most of off using just a damp soft cloth but there's still visible traces all over the...

    All traces of Britain slowly being eroded

    Can't realy agree with you on this, my folks moved to the UK in the 60's & none of what you have written applies to them or me. Yes, we may have different ideals & values but that has never prevented us from co-existing with anyone else. They never looked to create their old home here or set up...

    If you go for Sham then Na'am bay is where all the clubs, bars & restaurants are at but i found it too touristy. I would recommend one of the nicer 5-star hotels which are a few miles north form Na'am such as the Savoy or Ritz Carlton, they should provide shuttle buses to get about...

    I think I've been cheated!

    If what you have said is all there is to this deal then yes you have been done like a kipper and by a main dealer. He may not necessarily have lied to as it may have been inintially sold (and returned) but he was not completely open to the fact that he was selling you the same car at a £1k...

    Best place to buy a kit??

    I've just ordered a Blackfire kit from this place: They're based in the states but with the current exchange rate i may have saved a few pennies.
