    Pretty car. Did you consider the S?
    We did. We are trading in an S4, but I didn't feel the extra 20k was worth it.

    I like the Smart Car idea...can they make it up SF hills?

    2.0 or 3.2? Six speed is only available on the 2.0 which kind of sucks.

    sure and since they are so small and light, they are a cinch to push up the hills.

    Flashback to Gibraltar. Had a tiny little rental, forget what it was exactly, but it had a hell of a time getting up the rock. At times I was scared it was going to stop and start rolling backwards off the cliff.

    SF is one of the only places in the world I would consider getting an auto.

    Of course, the minute you get out of the city proper a manual is sweet, sweet, sweet.

    No need whatsoever for an auto in the city.

    BTW: The A5 is a gorgeous car but the Hank Williams Jr. car is unique and still available ( I just checked ). And I'll get you the home town discount.

    2-door coupes suck, just as an FYI.
    I'm a fan of them. Mine has worked out very well. YMMV.

    I am starting to like two door sedans.

    My original post was tongue in cheek, but this 2 door A5 sure looks good.

    My last post was also tongue in cheek and that new car of Matt's is indeed gorgeous.

    What colour Matt?
