2004-11 Audi A4, A6 added to Takata recall

Audi Australia has expanded its Takata airbag recall, adding the '8E' A4 and '4F' A6 model lines sold between July 2004 and April 2011. This particular notice affects vehicles with potentially-faulty passenger-side airbags. As with all Takata-related recalls, the airbag's inflator propellant could degrade over time as it gets exposed to high temperatures and humidity.

2017-18 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, CLS recalled

Mercedes-Benz has recalled the 2017-18 E-Class and CLS, over concerns about owners using a child restraint in the passenger seat. According to the company, if a child seat is installed in the front passenger seat, there's a chance the airbag might not turn off as intended. In those cases, there's a risk the airbag will trigger in an accident and injure the child in a rear-facing seat. The 15 affected vehicles were sold between October 2, 2017 and June 29, 2018. A VIN list is attached here.

Bugatti Veyron interior for sale in the US

Fear not, because one owner is (rather charitably) selling their tan interior for the low, low price of US$150,000 ($207,500). According to the seller, all the components were removed from the car before the owner took delivery, after he requested the interior be changed to black.

Now details are beginning to emerge of just how he managed it. Various reports have suggested Ghosn hid between ¥5 and ¥9.5 billion ($60 to $110 million), with Bloomberg estimating a figure around $95 million.
