      Story is I sold my almost mint C4 A6 Avant to my brother in law in October 2010. He kept it for a month and gave it to a friend. I just received it back in trade for doing work on his wifes A4 2.8. Unbelievable how someone can destroy a wonderful car in a year and a half. Bro in law didn't do it, it was the friend it was given too. What it was to what it is today timeline.

      How often does someone appreciate something that's free? Neverish.

      Also, what happened to the wheels?
