Oh, frigg!  There's no Audi content, but this epitomises both northern 
prejudices against southerners and their justification.  Back from a day in the 
south - saw two things worthy of note:
a) A _ludicrously_ pretentious ovloV S70-R in metallic gold.
b) An Audi A2 (yes, an _A2_) in original colours with decals and a legal-
   looking numberplate waiting in a stream of traffic to leave the M25 for the
   M40.  A street-registered A2?  Who?  Where?  What?  How?  It seemed to 
   have a Sport bonnet on it, so I will call Aelred in the morning (Dialynx 
   is in Swindon, up the M4, so it could have come off the M4 and been heading 
   for either London or the Cheshams.  I know he has an A2, but the last time
   I saw it, it was sans decals.  Spectacular vehicle, though.
