SPOTTED: Austria Ski Team's Audi A6



Saw this car driving from Richmond to Vancouver on the Knight St Bridge.

Its a Audi A6 2.7 TDI wagon, which I don't think we have here.

It said "AUSTRIA SKI TEAM" and "SPONSORED BY AUDI" on the side of the car.

The driver looked like your typical german dude with glasses talking on the phone. (obviously doesnt know about our new ban on phones while driving)

you can legally drive an european plated car as long as its insured for "out of country use" from, say, germany?

i would love to have those plates permanently, they belong on european cars, not some white or olympic themed rectangle

According to a friend that worked at Mercedes, there are a few Maybachs registered in Vancouver. I haven't actually seen one in person either though.

AND remove the car when your visa expires. You cannot have it plated here permanently.

Russians have A6s, Passats, Q7, Q5 and a few black escalades, and a few black 300Cs
I drove Malkin around today, and my bro, Ovechkin in one of those.
