By now, I’ve finally understood what the band “Tote Hosen“ meant when they sang about “days like these“. I really had to pinch my cheeks when I went to the Audi garage in the early morning. What I was getting from there? A brand-new Audi RS 4. Misano red. Ceramic brakes. Full equipment. Sought and found. The dull tapping of the engine starting grabs me from my dream and throws me right into another dream. At least, that’s what the day promises to be: Summerly temperatures with 21 degrees Celsius, bursting sun light. Off to the Altmühl Valley.
By the way, I’m not driving on my own, but meeting someone whose name is quite similar to mine: Maximilian Karl – industrial engineer at Audi, tinkerer and owner of the first Audi RS 4 B5. A gem in Avus silver, as I was told. An enthusiast, they said.
