I found a car-wash and the S4 starts to looks like the elegant old girl she is….

We have been locked-down at home since early March and it is just starting to be eased some 3 months later. So the old S4 has been locked in the garage gathering dust and looking rather sad and sorry for herself. Finally I have been able to take her out for a drive and wowContinue reading “I found a car-wash and the S4 starts to looks like the elegant old girl she is….”

One or two jobs done and the old girl starts to feel better….updated!

So during the dreaded lockdown I have been able to make very limited progress with the S4. Firstly I replaced the car battery as I noticed that the one on the car was too small (physically it did not fill the battery space, which is on the front bulkhead, as well as charge wise itContinue reading “One or two jobs done and the old girl starts to feel better….updated!”

Well, the S4 sure needs some good ol’ TLC…

As previously reported I recently took delivery of a 2005 B6 Audi S4 with that wonderful V8 4.2L engine and the Audi Quattro 4WD system. She has been very well looked after and has a full Audi service history from Audi Switzerland so I could not ask for more and I think that the dreadedContinue reading “Well, the S4 sure needs some good ol’ TLC…”

Have a look at this lovely classic car…..

You may love or even hate the original Fiat 500, but you cannot deny that they form a large part of the European motoring heritage. When Italy came out of the Second World War, the first cheap and mass-produced contribution to get the Italians mobile again was possibly Piaggio with their little mopeds, and thenContinue reading “Have a look at this lovely classic car…..”

You just godda see what this man can do with a damaged car or van or whatever…….

My mates are convinced that my lady pays him to pay me just to get me out of the house, which of course could be true but I don’t really care cos the experience is amazing. Mr Cioffi has been plying his trade inContinue reading “You just godda see what this man can do with a damaged car or van or whatever…….”
