    I was surprised to find that my 2017 C200 exhaust tips are not fake. Although the visible tips are not the actual exhaust but there are exhaust's behind then that do actually vent through the cosmetic exhaust tips :)

    the S6 thing really puzzles me as the whole world seems to be against diesel now, what better time to bring out a really big one?

    As most Audi drivers are about as popular as a fart in a space suit adding a Diseasal engine just adds to their overall appeal ;)

    Yesterday got to see very rare CLS32 AMG, only the 320 badge looked poorly cut with the 0 missing and the 2 was crooked. I really wanted a photo but the lights changed and it zoomed off in total silence :shock:

    debadged purely because the cloth snags on the letters and the polish residue gets in the edges ! took them off dont care what people think . I buy a model of car for its purpose and practicality . If im sat at the lights and a SLR or C63 sides up i think nice but if i won the lottery i would be in a vanquish one day and a DB5 on sundays
