The Audi A6 Avant: A different experience

Over the past couple of years, I’ve driven many different Audi SUVs; the Q2, Q5 and the Q7 among them. The Audi A6 Avant was going to be a different experience.  I hoped it would be a much more practical family vehicle than the Q7 yet more spacious than any of the other Audis I have driven. Without further ado, here’s what I thought.

Groupon: There’s an online discount code for EVERYTHING

When you think about online discount codes, what do you think of? I generally think of cheap hotel deals, maybe money off a meal or getting an electrical item cheaper than on the High Street.
