Small correction. Its NOT kissing. There is such a small gap that it can hardly be seen. It is even more difficult to spot thanks to that idiotic Ritz in the background.
FS was backing up to park into the garage which has space for 1 big car + a hatchback. We were like 'Ah what the heck ,lets just park it & the results are there to be seen' LOL
Good enough for FS to have clicked a pic and put it in here
Sorry for going

Fantastic pics Kartik !

Waiting for some even more ravishing motion captures and also some interior shots at dusk with the ambient lighting at full effect.

Awesome pics, Fireblader! Real treat to watch! The second last shot stand out of the lot but all the pics are beautiful none the less.

The A4 is on my radar and could very well be my possible next upgrade.

This thread has been inactive for what seems like ages now. So after exactly 1.5 years and 26,544kms of ownership ,am putting up some month old pictures of her as a mark of my respect,awe and undying love for her ! Was a beautiful rainy,cold,misty day...perfect for a dash to amby valley. More pics to follow soon. If these manage to generate any interest whatsoever that is.. LOL !

Dont know why but I always felt that A4 has the best balance in the looks department among C, 3 and A4. Those DRLs are to die for and looks awesome even when you are good 500 mtrs away from the car. Upload the interior pics as well whenever you get time

Nope no niggles at all. The only unfortunate incidents have been the couple of accidents that have happened in my period of ownership. Sadly, there is nothing i could have done to prevent it from happening on either occasion. Nonetheless, its been fixed to perfection by Audi and the result is in front of you to see
I have always said, my ownership is probably 1 of the examples of Audi Reliability and A.S.S.
Somehow Audi A.S.S has always been questioned on the forum.

Yet to click some interior shots. Plan to click them at dusk when the ambient lighting inside is at full effect and makes it look like a SU-30 cockpit ! I was just waiting if this thread gets any hits at all or is completely ignored so i could put up more pics accordingly if it generates interest. Thanks anyways

Great pictures of a great car PlatzdaTurbo, loved the mud soaked quattro badge! 26K km in 1.5yrs is plenty of driving!

Technically, I am still on the lookout for a used 3.0 tdi quattro, but funnily all the dealers wrongly list the 2.0s as 3.0s :-)

Wish you many more safe and happy miles!

Thanks & yea it is quite a lot of driving. i drive her like she is meant to be driven. Thoroughly enjoy her. There was a blue 3.0 tdi A4 up for sale in Delhi some time ago. Belongs to a BHPian if i am not mistaken. Dont know if it is still there. I guess that is the only other a4 3.0 tdi in the country.

It was green. Looked like a beauty. But so is yours man, it looks brilliant in white and with the rims becoming a dark grey. When are you upsizing to 18s?

Nah nah i just remembered, it was BHPian mokshe's car. It was up for sale. A4 3.0 TDI sans the body kit etc and blue in colour. I saw it in classifieds maybe a couple of months ago. Dont know now. Upsize would have been by the end of this year but the car went through an accident in August following which it was at the workshop for just under a month. So that and a few more things have delayed upsizing to 18s now.

Errmm...these 2 cockpit pics were clicked at dusk itself.
Anyway they are just a couple of amateurish pics i had clicked.
Will shortly upload professionally clicked interior shots which i assure you would be serious eye-candy.
