Colin,  I have been looking at changing to an S6 this summer.  The idea of a 5.2 litre V10 is hard to ignore.  The problem is my head is steering me towards an XF.  We have also owned Porsches in the last few years, so aren't exclusively Audi, but are both averse to BMWs.

Jarmin, my company was Scoobysport.  At some time or other, I have driven all but 4 of the 22B's that came into the UK.  The ones I missed were David Lapworth's, Colin McRae's and 2 others.  Great cars and my wife very nearly bought one instead of her 500 SS.  :o  They are likely to appreciate in value over the next 5 years, especially if still running the original 2.2.

Wifey picks up her new car tonight.  Will try and post some pics over the weekend.

    Here he is.  Wifey has named him 'Ayrton the Abarth'.  She is very pleased with him!!

    I like the photo with him next to my mate's Mazzer.  Two Italian thoroughbreds  :)

    I can recommend the XF highly. The 3.0 s which is a diesel twin turbo, but 0-60 in 6s. you have never felt power from a diesel like it. MPG is amazing too, best of both worlds. the interior finish is class, the 20" are the ones to get too. the engine performed better than the old S type 4.2 V8 which was shocking. There is a big diff from a normal 3.0 XF and a 3.0 's' XF.

    nice Abarth btw, love it in grey and white wheels, very nice indeed  :thumb:
