As life goes on it various commitments may influence the type of vehicle a person will buy. Sadly, the dream of owning a Porsche 911 or Ferrari may fall short due to lifestyle changes or a growing family which can force the need of something a bit more roomy. The obvious choice of vehicle is an estate car where the larger boot can easily carry golf clubs or even a bicycle on weekends (for those with an active lifestyle), whilst still being capable of doing the school run through the week days. Unfortunately this is never normally an attribute that is associated with performance vehicles with brute-force and pedigree, but there was one estate that decided enough is enough and that it was time to narrow the gap between performance and lifestyle markets - that estate was of course the Audi RS4 Avant. Previously available in both saloon and estate variations, the RS4 is now an estate-only option and offers just as much (or more) grunt than even the most purpose built sports cars.
The RS4 Avant we have in this feature is the latest model, freshly released for 2018 and finished in the ever popular 'Nardo Grey' with contrasting gloss black trim. Recently purchased by its owner and only a shave under 800miles clocked up this fast estate was brought to us in order to gain the best start to its life through our Gyeon Quartz Certified Detailer treatment. The vehicle arrived to us in a very clean state with surface dust in places and a few light bug remains.
