    After a brief stint in a 3 series tourer decided it was time to get myself back into an Audi, no way I was doing another winter in a rwd car!! Had an A4 B7 avant a couple years ago that I got slightly carried away with modifications, it was a great car but could do with something larger than an A4 now. The hunt began for an A6 and started looking at allroads, more of them I saw the more I liked them. Eventually found one in Belfast that ticked every box and had everything I was looking for so took a flight over to Scotland to pick it up. First impressions, awesome car!! Streets ahead of the BM in refinement and the driving experience, If I'm honest I'm actually quite shocked at how good a car it is. 272bhp is more than ample for me and still got 50mpg on the journey home with a good mix of different conditions, over the moon with it.

    Quick couple of snaps on the way to the ferry,

    And some of my other Audi, Coupe quattro with 4.2 V8 from an S8. It's almost finished, just really needs mapping and it'll be good to use.

    Thanks mate, Yeah all done at home, outside by myself except the respray. Just short of 3 yrs work, full rebuild. Thought I'd finished it 18mths ago but the original 2.8 motor was chronic so ripped it out and went for the V8.

    Mine too but it’s just a saloon. That colour is rare in Ireland and I didn’t see many advertised on Uk sites when I was looking.

    Daytona grey was my initial choice but I think the Tornado grey was the best now that I have it.
