Re: Kestrel's Car Spotting

Nice shots but give me your dads Kia anyday,better value and fun per mile than any of the others...The Lambo whatever it's called and all the others are probably owned by drivers with an inferiority complex and need to stand out in a crowd....

Re: Kestrel's Car Spotting

I'm not really a fan of sports cars. I have a BMW 520d (current shape) but I'd love the new BMW M760
BMW M760Li xDrive gets 592bhp twin-turbo V12 | Auto Express

My car:

#newcar #5series #bmw

In Sweden we get to use one of my father in law's cars: A BMW X5

Ok. This beats my 520. #x5 #bmw

I do love the 7-series BMW, I think your 5-series is better than the X5 tbh, im not much of a fan of the bigger 'jeep' like cars. Im more of an all round car guy, I like the classics, rare, super even some common cars I enjoy seeing and photgraphing. If it has more thank 2 wheels and an engine I can apreciate it.

Re: Kestrel's Car Spotting

I once had the chance driving this car:
It's an Audi RS6-R made by Abt Tuning.



I can tell you something. This was the most amazing experience in my whole live. As you may know, here in Germany are a couple of Highways with no speed limit...
