At the detailer

Post by giles » Sat Mar 21, 2020 11:48 pm

Loving the RS6 since delivery Thursday. Incredible.

It is now at the detailer for most of the week. I will post thoughts/review when I get it back plus photos. Here are a couple for now.

Really like the colour of leather you chose. Nice to see something other than black for a change. Is that a normal spec option on the C8 or is that Audi Exclusive (so expensive!)?
Currently running:
18 plate Lamborghini Huracan Performante (5.2l of V10 naturally aspirated craziness)
67 plate RS6 Performance (fully loaded)
66 plate Range Rover Autobiography (for wafting around)
16 plate Mini Cooper S convertible (lots of fun but rather skittish when thrashed)

Favourite car ever owned:
1971 Citroen DS21 - The Goddess (pure art on wheels)

Nope you can cancel it when you want as long as I havnt signed the car over to me. Audi UK agreed and so did the sales manager and they managed to get the car ready for 11am Tuesday and Bojo has locked us down lol

They are just trying to workout if they can first get it from the prep centre and then possibly drop it off to my house. Fingers crossed!

I have thought about it and there is a couple of issues:

1) Dealers is closed so i cant cancel until they open up and when they open i can collect the car has been PDI'd just needs to come over from the prep centre.
2) If they didn't do anything yesterday then yea i would have canceled but considering they went from we dont know when you will get your car as its in a queue to be PDI'd to we will have your car with you in under 24 hours they actually pulled out all the stops to get me it.
