Sprint Blue RS4 Avant (B7) heading south at Awatoto (between Napier and Hastings) this morning.  Not seen one in  that colour in the flesh before - looked very good.

Also saw a red 130 Abarth just prior, Drew?

Saw another B7 RS4 later in the day but this time a black sedan.  Wife agreed that it was a very good looking car.

Thanks for letting me know. I didn't exactly speak much to her, kinda had a 'star struck' moment.   :D

I've been following her for a while now, have always wanted to meet the person behind the blog so it's good to finally meet her in person but caught totally off-guard hence the "star struck" moment.

I guess the word "famous" means differently to each individual. :)
