Have to say I admire that person for enjoying their money and to Hell with the naysayers. Well wear on the new Ford and I like that shade of blue.

I have my new A4 all specced up for (hopefully) later in the Spring at this stage, and a Passat R Line as Plan B.

I know the discussion has been had but the thoughts of replacing a year old car with the same thing everytime sounds like being in a sould destroying job.

I'd buy new cars all the time if I could but it wouldnt be the same one year on year.

Some years they could probably distract him for a while, valet , clock and change the plates, give him back the same car and he wouldnt notice.

I'd agree with you except for the fact many people in Ireland buy paddy spec miserable yokes just to keep up with the Joneses and have a new reg. Terrible way to spend money.

I never understand this. Looking at his photo he looks like a Rolls Royce would be wasted on and this fella grew up in am era when cars had crank handles and a radio and a heater were extras, to him a car like that is very high tech.

He may not be keeping up with anyone, he has a few bob and spends it on a new car, I personally doubt he's doing this for appearances.
