    I like having the extra space of a wagon. Also, I feel like some wagons have a better balance about them than their sedan counterparts.

    I like the FF a lot in person, I find it to be just a striking as the F12. To each his own.

    Also, there are relatively few current cars I like as much as the A4/S4/RS4 Avant/Allroad (in terms of styling).

    Here's one from the weekend:

    Part of the appeal for me, at least, is that an RS4/6/M3/5 is that you can chomp up 200 miles of motorway without getting a back-ache or having your eardrums bleeding, but the twisty bits are still good fun.

    In this respect Bentley are rather good; when you are pottering about it runs as a 4 cylinder, and when you floor it you get the full power.

    Saw the new 4 series coupe today, besides the fact guy who was driving it drove like a complete dick, it was pretty cool.

    I think the underwhelmingness if the FF is sort of the point, just like the 612, 550 and that other late nineties front engine Ferrari which name I can't remember 4 something. (edit: 456).

    They are GT car not super cars, so you want something that you can park everywhere without it drawing too much attention to it self and you want to be able to drive it to work everyday, you can't really do that in a mid engined super car without looking like a douche.

    I can't really make my mind up on the FF one day I love it, the other not so much, but I do love utilitarian aspect of it and the fact you can use it everyday and in a way have it as your only car.

    Exactly, that's a good example. Why buy the sedan version when the wagon looks better and has more utility?

    ^^^Probably the only wagon I've ever liked.

    First time I saw an FF was in Paris outside of the US Embassy. It had snowed so there was a light dusting on the car but it was beautiful. I love the car but can see why others hate it.

    As for a wagon, an A4 All-Road may be our next purchase.

    New S-Coupe. Dare I say another home-run by Mercedes?

    Spotted two different M235i's this weekend. Pretty nice, but I don't like the lone "M" badge on the front fender.

    MB really is killing it lately with their new design language.

    Love that S coupe.

    Did you get to hear the exhaust?

    I'm really itching to test drive one with a manual tranny. Maybe, just maybe, I'll lease one if I get a job in Austin.
