Default Brother bought one of his dream cars today

He loves the Bonneville and is a boostaholic now. But he needed a winter beater so we went to the local auction where we got his bonneville. Watched a bunch of cars go throw and he bidded on some but didnt get them well..... An Audi A4 quattro 2.8L comes up (ever week we go he has to sit in everyone and tell me how much he wants one) so i tell him to bid. He is like, i cant afford that right now. But he starts the bid and him and another guy go back and forth for a while and my brother looks at the guy with one of those "this car is mine" face and just holds his number up. Needless to say everyone walks away in disgust and he stands proud lol.


Got a wicked deal on it. Anyone want to guess what he paid for it. Fully loaded (i believe every option offered lol) (moonroof, heated seats, bose audio system with 12 disc, ect, ect) AWD, 5 speed. KBB'* for just under 7,000.
