111r Turbo pickup day!!!

HI All,

Had my car picked up today by a friend......unfortunately I'm overseas at the moment so he had to do the duty (he was pretty stoked to do so haha) He currently owns a new RS4 and said this would totally annihilate it around a track and was still comfortable to drive on the winding roads. Was really surprised how tractable the turbo engine was and how much low down torque It produces. He was supposed to drive it straight to the garage but ended up doing 80km in and haha and took some nice photos so Im happy.

He's helping me out allot with looking after it, taking it to get the new wheels and suspension fitted shortly etc so i dont mind him having some fun as long as he takes it easy

Anyway let me know what you think. I think I might be in love and Ive not even driven it!

Cheers
Riley

Hi.

Looks great. Can you post a close up pic of the side marker badges? Oh, and one of the engine bay too. That must be some good friend you have.

Thanks.

No offense but I've seen this story play out before where you lend your buddy your car and then it's wrapped around a tree/pole/fill in the blank.
