I'm sure they'll let you use your credit card

Selling B5 and 1M would get you close Cool

I still want the old one Rolling Eyes

Lovely, the ultimate 4-seat sporting GT? Can't think of much that comes close, a Maserati Granturismo S perhaps.

Presumably the B5 will now get this upgraded engine.

Will be interesting to see if they do a D6 version.

Need the Touring for the old dog (still have Sandy) and keeping the 1m as I think it is a future classic and itís a blast

Would like a 730D M sport or a B7 just now to cruise about in Very Happy as I miss mine Crying or Very sad so the credit card would be needed for fuel for the 730D Msport or B7 Confused so the new toy is out the window Wink

Any idea on rough price yet?
I'm guessing it's lottery winning bracket?
