When i was doing mot and servicing...the big earners where the german cars. Merc vag and bmw expensive parts and seem to fall apart outside warranty. French stuff i added an extra £10.00 ph as most difficult to work on and fragile.

Back to the Audi
I am now in a bit of a quandary .
It was pre registered car so now basically a year old but the lease is over 3 years . Given what has happened on such low miles I be asking if they will either extend the warranty over the period i have the car or put the lease over 2 years .
Don’t want any expensive bills on something I don’t own

See why so many people in the states lost their feet from drag racing back in the day.

Pedals either side of the bellhousing. Engines got more powerful and the performance of other parts didn’t catch up.

Strapped into a drag racer going full bore and summat let’s go and ya have to just sit there n take it....

Doesn’t bare thinking about

Ross from Dragon performance had a clutch/flywheel explode when he launched his drag car. Don't think he raced after that
