I'm toying with the notion of buying an Audi A4

A 1.4 TFSI Sport Estate, to be exact.

However, being a cyclist, it's a bit of a dilemma. Especially given that 8/10 of the near misses I have whilst cycling involve Audis.

It's difficult for me to get past the "c**k rings" thing. What say the good people of CycleChat?

I used to have an A4 and it was a cracking car.

I am test driving a Q5 tomorrow- and i’m almost sold on buying it already.

It’s not the car that’s the issue just the tube driving it.

I bet your 8/10 stat isn’t correct
Out of the last ten near misses I've had, which go back to the start of last year, eight have involved Audis.

The other two were a Fiat 500 (which was the closest I've had to being killed out of the ten), and a van.
