Default My First Audi

Just found the only known photo I have of my first Audi, apologies for the quality as it's obviously a photo of a photo, but thought it worth sharing.

It's the S4 I mentioned in my introduction, a 1994 Ragussa green one, I'm sure all on here will know more about them then I ever will. I was fond of the car, my first quattro obviously, and though the tints are not to everyones taste I thought it was a great looking car. I'd just had a stainless exhaust made and fitted at Leeds for around 600 quid then my A8 came along and it was no contest, it had to go.

And before anyone mentions it, I don't always dress like that, I was at a wedding

Cheers fella, I thought it looked great but it was quite rare so I guess not many people knew what it was anyway.

On the subject of your A8, I'm resisting the urge to come and look at it as you're very close to me. It's got loads more toys than mine but when I'm ready to upgrade I want to get a D3. I'm worried if I do see yours I'll be tempted to buy it

Good luck with selling it, I hope you get sorted with something more suitable

An endless supply of spares and panels, it's certainly tempting.....but sentiment wouldn't allow me to let mine be the donor car, it just doesn't deserve that fate
