Come on Brian - sort him out!!
Aye he's still on the dark side, though he did venture into VAG ownership with a Polo GTi and an RS3. TBF the 3.0 straight 6 in his BMW is a sweet engine Not sure a D2 is on his "list", I suspect he hopes to inherit mine as it will probably outlive me

I do however have him to thank for mine as it was he that suggested I get one when I opted out of the Company Car scheme many years ago

Haha now why would you say that?

On a completely different matter, did you ever find that little A2 you were looking to buy?

I want one! I was looking at one recently 1.4se. Guy bought it as project but after he bought it it went to limp mode and then lockdown happened . He said it goes to limp mode if over 30mph. Not sure how much to trust but he did start the car and sounded pretty smooth. Plus had under 80k on clock that matches with MOT history. Oh it also had expired MOT. Would you say 1.6fsi is better?
