Apart from the obvious towing issue, i can't see a trade plate on the back of that Audi. Surely it shouldn't even be on the road?

to be fair though, that's pretty impressive towing for the Audi

You'd be pretty desperate to tow a van using a A3 Cab, surely they would have some old smoke lying around they'd use to tow it with. Better off using an old A8 V8 TDi or something.

Its a Sprinter with the space for one car on the back. If they had the choice im pretty sure they wouldnt have used the A3 as a 1st choice.
