I was thinking of selling my "old" 200 series.....some crazy prices out there atm...but I can't afford to update, so I'll keep the "old" girl !!

One of the bosses at work took delivery of a new 200 series VX about 7 months ago. The dealer rang him a fortnight ago and offered him $10k more than what he paid for it.
Another boss has a 200 series Sahara on order since August. Gets it early next month.

He hopes he gets it. Seems some dealers are playing games, handing deposits back on cars they know they are getting so they can onsell them to "new" clients that are willing to pay more. It is probably illegal, but who has proof.

He will get it, we buy (purchase outright not lease) our fleet from this dealership.

On the 20th Dec, a man ran from an RBT- breaking into houses, jumping fences, and hiding from police. When he went through our house, he discovered the keys to our Audi R8 parked in the garage. This is the full dashcam footage of the gut wrenching 30 minute joyride he took before damaging the car beyond repair and dumping it at a property in Windale. It is an absolute miracle no one was injured with the erratic way this lowlife was driving our Supercar, and we were fortunate enough to find the car with the help of the Facebook community.

There is dashcam footage of the whole event. For the most part, he looked like he knew how to drive seeing as he was going at insane speeds thru suburbia.
When the scum gets out of jail, he should be made to pay for the damages......even if it takes 20 yrs.

There's the problem, he will never go to jail...

At worst, might get a slap on the wrist with a wet lettuce leaf. That's about the only punishment courts hand out these days.

Reckon theres a fair chance most of his friends are known by the Bronze ..Thought the Audi was pretty weak in the rear end, to fail like that, given the cost of the thing .. Ohh well guess they're made to run on Billiards table smooth Euro roads though .

They know it is a stolen car, but do not report is. Is that not a crime in it self. ???

I grew up with people from houso suburbs, but nowadays they need to separate the low income "normal" people from the drug addict scum who drag the others down into their cesspits.?

The R4 rear suspension is a multilink system made up with alloy link arms. I'm thinking that he had the rear wheel up against the curb and gave it full power to break it like that..
