Funny how fashions change, and, consequently what we are willing to pay extra for. I remember when Ford introduced their basic 'Popular' ranges, with matt black bumpers and door handles instead of chrome ones, so you could tell it was the cheap model. Then it was body-coloured trim, after that everyone wanted chrome (too much in some cases), but now the matt and gloss black are desirable.

So now, an Audi upgrade is what was once featured on the poverty spec

:o)

Given that Audi will sell a record number of cars both in the UK and worldwide this year, and finally overtake BMW in the UK while they're at it (unless BMW repeat their trick from last year and register over 22,000 cars to their UK head office at the last minute...), I think they are probably happy with their sales numbers in this 'austerity ridden time'.

And the upside is you will only see another hundred exactly the same on the way home, just what your after after shelling out your hard earned cash.

A car with the ride quality of a house brick, comman as muck, absolutley no style and near the bottom of the pile for reliabilty, just as well its so cheap!!!!!!
