I got a new car. - Page 10

post #136 of 146
I'm not really a fast driver, but I do drive a bit aggressively at times. Speed is nice, and I appreciate knowing it's available to me, but I also enjoy all the comforts and tech that enhance the overall driving experience.

Given the landscape of SF, I can't think of a better gearbox/engine pairing. Particularly when one's trying to pull away from a stop on a 45 degree hill BTW, A5 is one of very few Audi models that retains any sorta value after the end of the life of factory warranty. P.S. Projected residual @ 49%. No homo.

And come on guys, if you really want to make fun of him, he wants to buy a SMART CAR for Christ's sake.

Perhaps I am wrong, but I was under the impression that he had the Porsche SUV, hence my reference to speed.

Pio proved my point via PM. Frankly, I could give a flying fuck what you think.

Speed is never an issue for bigtimers because they never have to get anywhere on time. By definition, events start when they arrive.

Yes and no. Everyone has to answer to someone at some point.

It matters in Engineering or the sciences, as you will usually not qualify for graduate programs or for work in the field without the appropriate undergraduate degree. I like to believe that these fields are professions. One's undergraduate degree field also matters to the Patent Bar. ~ H

A5s are pretty nice in person, black especially.

I prefer the Cayman myself but for matt the A5 is probably a way better choice.

I wonder if the 2.0 doesnt feel underpowered though, even for reasonable practical purposes?

I saw pics of a 4-door A5 in a European magazine at Borders today. It looked nice, but I'm not sure if it'll make it to the U.S. market.
