You all know the deal, got new job, R32 had to go.
But a car nut can't be driving to work in a Prius. I wanted a balance of economy and performance, and i kept coming back to the same answer.
So without further ado, here she is:
She's a B8 2008 A4 Avant, 3.0TDI quattro.
242PS, 369 lb·ft 0-60 in 6.2 seconds. But can happily get 42MPG on the motorway, which is significantly better than the R32, but the same performance figures.
- Xenon headlights with LED running lights
- S-line trim
- Bang and Olufsen audio system
- Panoramic sunroof
- Front and rear parking sensors
- Half-leather S-line seats
She's just shy of 97K miles, and drives flawlessly.
There are already some plans for this car, once i get my redundancy money in a couple of months, the fun can begin!
But for now, all i will be doing is FITTING CRUISE CONTROL. BECAUSE WHY THE HELL IS IT NOT STANDARDDDD!!!??? >Rant
Same story as my last car, big spec, but they didn't spec cruise. I just don't get it. Luckily that should be pretty straightforward to retro fit, if it's anything like the MK5 was.
Now i need a new signature, and i need to take some proper pictures with the DSLR some time, the camera phone pictures really don't do this metallic grey paint justice. Got some scratches and a bit of over-spray and whatever, but nothing a good rotary polsih shouldn't iron out, I think mr jay might be getting a visit for that, as i know he's the man when it comes to polishing things, oh and paint correction.
