I spy a 23

Post by RichardW »

Time for biannual spotting...

Saw 2 today, both Defenders on Yorkshire plates - they must have been on delivery, they were a couple of miles apart on the same road.

Saw one on the A4 near Knowl Hill today, black Audi S4 driving like a tool. I'm just as bad, I admit. I couldn't resist seeing him off down the A404 sliproad on the motorbike :oops:

Some visuals. Difficult to look unsuspicious so no close ups and nicely out of focus

None yet but not very observant, I forget to look for them and EVs.

A couple more, an I-pace(*), Tesla Y and a Kia Sportage(?)

* far too much money if you buy one of these; with the dire economy and vast purchase price. If this is representative of where Jaguar are going with the super-luxury EV only market, they may not be long for this world!!

Spotted 4 23's today

BMW i3 2023 model, The red car in the photo, a Red Honda SUV thing, and a Citroen on a Flat Bed Truck ( delivery I presume not the first breakdown!)
This could be anything Red car...definitely a 23 though!

Not many days left, and many FCF heavyweights still to register a spot of a "23".

Saw another one the other day VW Golf, not sure whether it was just a courtesy car, or VW are giving them away. They did have a VW ID3 21 Reg, very happy with it, would be surprised if they have replaced it with a Golf unless VW are doing a bit of discounting.

Neil

Edit....It was a courtesy car, the VW I3 is in for a recall, and the dealer is waiting for the part/parts/software update or whatever.!
