Some places quote both, some max width overall, some width with folded mirrors, not always clear which on a source that only gives one width measurement.

Just refreshing this to tell everyone how much I still love this car. More or less flawless. I even went off road in it recently down a river bank and across fields whilst fishing.
Depreciation is painful at £1k+ per month so I was toying with the idea of getting rid of it.
Especially as a while ago every warning light in the world came on warning me that my abs was malfunctioning, my esp was, my sport dif was, my start stop stopped working and my rear brake was permanently stuck on.
I took it into my local garage who put it on the machine and said it was a brake switch, and changed it to no avail.
I tried to book it in at my two most local Audi dealers who are specatucar cnuts. Next available slot was 6 weeks. When I laughed and said sooner, they cheerfully laughed back and said 'goodbye'. fcuking massive cnuts.
So I decided to just drive it around like that for a couple of months hating what was now a worthless and fcuked car.
Anyway, I google Audi independents the other day and it turns out there was one about a mile away. I dropped it off same-day and he called me tomorrow.
He said it was the strangest job he had had. He followed the diagnostics and stripped down to the brake switch and noticed my local garage had fitted it but had failed to turn a switch that effectively switches it on. Do he just did that, everything worked as it should and charged me next to nothing.
So now my car is perfect again and it is worth a depreciation for a couple more months!
best car I have owned.

Accepted. But when I take into account my good fortune of having my car and looking like this >points to face and giant cock> rather than having your car and looking like that >has a pained expression and can barely make my finger point towards the face in case it gets pointing aids< then I win overall I think!

I'm really glad you like this car TT, and that you have something equally as fast Gregg.

I admit, that it is very convenient for you that you are able to point to your face and giant cock at the same time.

(Not because you penis come up to your face like some dancing cobra swaying to a piped tune you disgusting autosexualist, but because it grows out of your gigantic Tefal-toaster scientist forehead! HAHAHHA!)

Glad to hear the Xmas tree dash wasn’t terminal or expensive. Has it used any consumables like tyres or pads yet?

Not yet, although I am deliberately avoiding looking at them ever in case I notice they are low

Yeah, I hadn’t twigged the 700bhp thing with this car. A heavy right foot will shred a set of tyres fairly rapidly, no? And what max output is the gearbox rated for?

No idea, but it is almost 600 as standard and apparently nearly 900 is cheaply and easily available so I assume the gearbox has some flexibility. I wont own it long enough to care in any case.
