I'm not saying this happened but what happened quite often is a car get's dropped on you out of the blue. Even if you booked it in in advance it does'nt...

    Polished Bliss vs Audi RS6 - The Full Works!

    Very good work lads. I was probably more impressed with the exhaust tips than anything else because I know what a pain they can be. At a rough guess I would have thought with two ppl on the car plus time and traveling the price would be around £250 ish
