Everything was sorted. The coupe was for sale and I was going to move on. A brand new MK3 TTRS is what I was saving for. I came very close to making a deal just before Christmas and then almost bought a nearly new one more recently. A few factors pulled me back from the edge though and with Trish changing her job I really began to re evaluate spending upwards of £50k on a car.
So I had my A5 detailed and ceramic coated (£££ Don't ask) and started to think that maybe the best option would be to wait for well specified RS’s to return from their PCP contracts and save a fortune. So this was my plan but it still didn’t feature a Coupe though
Then came Turin. As I walked around the Lingotto I fondly recalled the event there. Then speaking to all the Italians, via Facebook messenger, selling the coupe kept being mentioned and I was struggling to justify it. Could I not just keep the Coupe and take it out for shows and events?
I then remembered an offer from one of the Polish fellows made last year when we met in Holland. He had just rebuilt a car for one of the Dutch fellows and he too was urging me not to sell. Over dinner and a few beers he suggested getting my Coupe over to him to refresh the underside and address any tiny niggles such as the dash plastics.
I was still resolute in my stance that I could not have a TTRS and the Coupe. So why then have I called him this week this week to discuss possible options?
