Dear Guys,

As you may know I had a FWD A5 3200 for several years and I really loved the experience. Personally this was the first car that I really enjoyed apart from a few years with a BMW 530D, and I joined this wonderful forum and even made some very gentle mods!!

I sold her and purchased a 2006 S4 Avant just before the COVID lockdowns so I have been able to use her very little indeed, just local trips. Well, last week I finally ventured from Amalfi to the UK and back and I covered almost 6k kms, and blimey WHAT a car and what an experience.

You can read more on my blog here but suffice to say I am now in love with the Quattro system cos it snowed almost all of the journey and the S4 remained totally cool!!!

Nice writeup Simon. Yup crossings are now even less fun than before. Any reason why you didn't use the train?

Tony I must confess that as my first venture since the bloody COVID hit us I did not really feel confident using any public transport. We can currently get Ryan Air flights for 30 Euro return!!! Call me cowardly but I prefer caution to be honest, until things hopefully get better. AND I confess I went to see a LHD Jaguar in London (XKR) but with all this snow I decided to keep the ol' S4!!!!

I get that. I just prefer the ease, speed and frequency of the train.

Yeah I get that Tony mate. BUT I always think that if the nasty guys wanna cause a big scene then a bomb in a car on the Chunnel would be fun......
