    Try living on Anglesey and you don't travel far for stunning locations, I couldn't get out of England quick enough when I retired. The trips back to Cheshire are shared with my wife's Range Rover hence the low mileage.

    Audi Service Price Match - have they told the dealers?

    I use a local independent garage that purchase a genuine Audi service kit from the dealers and then carry out the service way cheaper than Audi. 2 year oil change service - £140 all in. Service warning reset and electronic service record filled in.

    The world vs Audi drivers...

    I remember years ago whilst road testing a loaded artic (32 tons shows how long ago) and a d-ck in a 8L S3 was so focused on overtaking me in a 40 mph zone he didn't see the parked car on the other side of the road until he hit the brakes and front ended it. Di-khead ! I didn't even bother to stop.
