The Americans I know who feel the need to actually carry a gun in the car usually duct tape it to the underside of the steering column. They don't feel the need to wave it around like some surrogate willy and post pictures of themselves on the internet. Cop

Apologies to the OP for taking this off topic. Normal service will be resumed shortly.


oops digit problems .....

No worries Max ,
I actually think it’s great the way we can morph one subject to get onto other additional issues we need to share ......

As I read the comments about the US models gun holster/ guns in the car , reminded me of many conversations I had with colleagues from across the pond on the subject of gun racks in their( Monster) Pickups ......it’s usually their first optional extra and I just couldn’t repeat the conversation contents without fear of offending their ‘ intellect’ but in all honesty they may/ probably do have a different set of circumstances to live by....

Now ,the cup holder I could really do without ...I forget it’s actually there and would just never see any instance where I would consider having a hot cup of coffee above my centre console and the way I drive , it just wouldn’t make any sense ...I even tried putting a bottle of water in it once but it just looked so fKin stupid sat there !
It’s a damn sports car fer Crisesakes!!!!!

Nice cup holder!

On the subject of the badging, my issue is they use too many different font's.
That's what cheapens the look IMO.

Reminds me of an Audi I spotted in traffic a few years back which appeared to be an A6 2.5 Tdi RS6 Sline if the badging was anything to go by.
