Tbf he's not wrong. Audi/VW cars are absolute bags of shit these days. Genuinely as unreliable and cheaply built as any Renault.

Yet you can sell them for crazy money simply because the badge.

Same with Range Rover Evoques. Useless, cheap, knock offs with a Transit engine. The new Kia Sportages are superior in every single way, yet because its a white Evoque folk go crazy for them.

Yeah I still couldn’t really believe he came out with it though. The Evoques are quite smart tbf 😎 What’s your opinion on the Scirocco?

Depends what engine tbh. Diesels are just Peugeots these days.

Always found Mercedes drivers to be the lesser of the German w****r automobiles. Audi sits top by miles tbh. I've got a VW, like to think of it as the good guy of the bunch. 
I rarely drive now, except for the shops and up the west coast highlands. I really despise this NC500 concept, brings all manner of fuds and tourists that think the road is now essentially a tourist attraction. Which is utterly moronic, a road is for getting from one place to another, nothing else. Glencoe area is a big massive car park now, in fact car park infers an order to it all, people just abandon their cars anywhere remotely resembling a space. The tranquility of it all is gone, it wasn't that long ago I could drive up on a summer night after work and easily stop somewhere safely for a break from driving, impossible now. 
I recently read Kintyre businesses are trying to launch an equivalent tourist route there - the Kintyre 66. The A83 to Campbeltown is a good road but the B road on the east side of totally unsuitable - single track with hairpin bends that the campervans will come a cropper on.

That reminds me, coming back from Argyll a few weekends ago, I'd just left Inveraray and saw in my mirror a campervan overtaking the car behind me. He overtook me shortly later and then proceeded to overtake another few cars before going past another campervan and disappearing into the distance. Nothing wrong with a campervan overtaking but some of the manoeuvres were downright dangerous and there was no way he could see round upcoming bends to know the road was clear.

Dalkeith Road/East Preston Street junction going southbound. The road lay out allows you to go straight ahead or turn right if you're in the right hand lane. White car in front not signalling. Lights change to green. Car in front edges forward and stops. Still no signal. 

The p***k is turning right but is now blocking me from going forward. Had they bothered to signal when waiting at the lights I would have anticipated this and switched lanes. Stupid ignorant dangerous inconsiderate cnut - hope they get rear ended by a bus sometime.

Shout out to the p***k driving the Dpd van on the Tay bridge today about 3pm cutting in front of me then poroceeding to drive up the arse of anyone until they pulled into left hand lane. p***k.
However why do people persist in driving down the centre of the bridge. It is 1.5 mile long and like any dual carriageway albeit with a 50 limit.
Are they honestly not capable of getting in the correct exit lane in the last few 100m. Or are they worried they will fall over the edge.

It's like folk getting on the Kingsway at Lochee heading West and immediately getting in the overtaking lane because they're going to Asda.

Yeah that does boil my piss but to be fair to the cars being tailgated by the Dpd driver were in the process of overtaking

You can't go wrong with Mazdas lads.  Had 2 and they've never let me down.  Apart from the first one when I went over a mental pothole I didn't see and half the back end of the car collapsed on me. That wasn't the car at fault though, this was a fucking hole in the road.

I had a 2016 Mazda 3 and that was solid.  Used to pass MOTs with zero advisories. It was a superb brief.  And the Japanese don't mess about when it comes to specs (specifically tech) too. This thing was kitted out inside and outside.

Agree I'm on my second Mazda (3 and now CX-5)  and will probably get another one when this one's up. Especially agree on the tech specs. Kitted out to the max.

Yeah I think the Scottish 66 is actually well under way now. In a way kind of glad if it takes some of the load off the A82 as I don't drive the A83 anywhere near as much as I used to. I know the B roads in that region well, some of which awful to take a large load down *kenneth williams gif* although no worse than the Bealach na ba which is seen as an extension to the NC500 now. I've seen all manner of tourists attempt ridiculously large motor homes and towing huge caravans down that road. Murder if you get stuck behind them as they seem to have zero awareness despite signs indicating to let people overtake. 

Would be interested to know the sort of speeds you maintained and rough size of the campervan, usually if they are larger they should be doing 50mph in a national speed limit area. Apart from the very large straights after the Dunoon turn there isn't many opportunities for a slow campervan to pass. 

I passed a bus a while ago on the A82 a couple of miles passed Tyndrum, had what looked like Chinese writing on the side, driver was not hanging about. Anyway at the end of the straight I looked back and he was pulling out for an overtake two thirds down the Bridge of Orchy straight and on the corner I passed a number of bikers making quite some progress. Unsure how that encounter ended, assume all ok but a scare for someone.

Either that, or they wait until the lights have gone green then signal. Like that helps.

@Florentine_Pogen is clearly the arsehole on the road here - driving when he can't read a number plate from an appropriate distance

I was driving behind one of those 30mph on the open road arseholes today, who promptly speeded up when he entered a 30mph zone! Also had only one brake light and his right indicator didn't appear to be working. His left one was, though.
