      I just got back from Ottawa, 31hr straight through.

      I can't believe that car hasn't sold yet.

      edit-
      Maybe add why your selling so people don't think it's a lemon or something.

      Holy crap dude. Phenomenal range is one thing, I don't think I'd have the sanity or discipline to make only one stop.

      My hubby has a 89 scirocco that he just loves, and was wondering if anyone in Winnipeg gets together anytime.
      I was at a car show tonight and not a single VW in the mix, was shocked to see that, considering we've seen VW's all over town of all models and years.

      Winnipeg euro enthusiasts will usually meet at assiniboine park parking lot around 2 on Sundays.

      It's not always a question of having friends. Myself I have lots of friends but very few of them can hold a wrench never mind turn one. So myself I'm always down for someone to give me a hand at thigns

      Wrenching for beer, I should of said "do you want a new friend" or something. Anyhow, I know **** about wrenching yet I work hard and if I have the time I'll msg you.

      Best of luck.

      I thought these cars (s4) were sleepers, I guess audi is hoping ppl will cower at the sight of the s4 badge. On the other hand it's not like these cars compete with M3s or C class amgs
