    Default Austerity 2013.. EU style

    While the budget cuts kick in from the first week of 2013, it seems that at least one car dealership is doing ok..

    58 brand new, 131 reg Audi A6, minimum 46k on the road (and you can be damn sure these babies aren't going to be standard spec models) parked up outside Farmleigh... while your wage check is lighter

    You might want to think about changing that link- it gave me access to all the pictures on that facebook account.

    Doesn't make me sick at all. Audi are coughing up for this as a sponsor of the EU Presidency, hence there's no cost either to the State or to your "wage check" (cheque, by the way Rock).

    Sorry, what's your point? Do you need Ministerial approval to open a car dealership now? That must be new.

    In this case, its better than free. Audi want to flog cars. They create employment in Ireland attempting to flog cars. They give us free cars in an attempt to flog cars.

    Its your choice whether to buy or not.
