    Found rust just before summer season..

    Really thought I would be spared but I have now found rust in my rear wheel well on my a5 from 2011. What to do now? Audi won't pay for a respray and before it spreads and I lose a lot of money do I sell or sand it down and paint for now? God damnit.

Don't really like the look of it by default but with some work it really is a gem to look at. Even without...

    Coupe vs Sportback, are you happy with your choice?

    As I ended up with the sportback having looked at the coupe first I must say I regret my choice somewhat sometimes when I see a coupe next to me, it just looks a bit better in my opinion mind you that I have yet to lower mine or had any nice wheels installed yet which will enhance my cars look...
