Farewell BMW

I decided after 13 years and a total of 7 cars to have a break from BMW. Pick up my new Audi A6 S line 40 TDI S tronic on Wednesday.

My car have been:

(E60) 5 Series saloon 520d 2006
3 series Coupe 320d 2007
(E60) 5 series saloon 520d 2008
(F11) 5 series touring 520d 2011
(F11) 5 series touring 520d 2014
(G31) 5 series touring 520d 2017
(F30) 3 series saloon 330d 2027

I've really enjoyed my cars and ever since my first BMW I've been hooked. But over the past few years something has been missing - i don't get that special feeling anymore like when I did with the E60 and to a certain degree the F11.

So I've bitten the bullet and I'm going to give Audi a try. First impressions after lots of test drives are positive. Like BWM, they are when pushed, willing to discount heavily especially when you give them you car history and I think they see it as a coup to get me to buy one of their cars.

I shall be loitering on the forum as I really enjoy reading all of your experiences, the knowledge sharing and general camaraderie.

Farewell....for now

Good luck and hope you enjoy the Audi.
Doesn't mean it will happen to you, but superb and reliable car though it was, I could never get comfortable in the Audi A6 that I had. I drove it all over Europe and it never missed a beat and is rock solid reliable. But it was missing something..... As I say, may just be me.

I get what you're saying...nothing ventured nothing gained.
