    Perhaps not Vegas, but I am in Corby tonight and Haydock tomorrow.....

    Interesting, an A6 decided to park right next to the S6 in an otherwise empty hotel car park!

    Duh! I don't know why I didn't think of it when I wrote this - it turns out that the new Continental has the Porsche PDK 'box, which is easily up to the job of a 650bhp+ engine. I was guessing -wrongly - that VAG had beefed up the S-tronic.

    Probably hoping that some of the "life force" from the S6 would rub off on it.

    Most likely thinking if a car was gonna get stolen/vandalised it would be the s6 and not the standard A6 😄

    Good point!

    Saying that, nothing has yet happened so all good and hanky dory.

    Funny thing happened today as I pulled into the car park at a customer. One of the ladies, who I dont deal with, started talking to me re the S6, loving the color etc. she said she’s a real petrol head and knew all about the S6 at another customer, the MD drives an RS6....he still looked as I got back into mine (his is a normal dark blue metallic)
