    I still want proof that Kunk fits in his A3.

    When I clicked on this I had hoped to see something a bit more exciting. It's Ok but not impressive. I like most of the other recent Audi models though.

    The original A3 design was so much better looking than the new one.

    She had an S4 before, so compared to that, it is a slow poke. Still, it handles really well, which is fun since we drive most in our crazy little city.

    the styling in the first pic, particularly the rear end, reminds me of the mb cls...isn't there a :vomit: smilie?
    I like the rear-end, looks so much better than the Panamera.

    ^lol. my wife said I should get something more responsible and when i showed her the 140hp on the diesel, her reply was "fuck that". she drives like 55 max so i dunno why that would matter to her.

    Good answer. I thought I had missed some economic advantage of diesel (in the US).

    Kunk, ask your wife to drive a diesel: their low-end torque is what makes them fun. Diesels don't make high HP because they don't rev very high, but most people don't rev their engines very high anyway.

    I dont like the A7. Its neither sleek nor sporty nor elegant.

    In other news, the Panamera has grown on me.

    Feel the same exact way, both times. I wouldn't count this upcoming BMW 6-series 4-door out of the picture, either. Where I live, CLS' have been insanely popular for the past 5 years or so, and rightfully so, as they're nice to look at, and AMG's are really popular here even though they cost 200 grand. There'll be plenty of these A7's when it's new but I don't see it being the share leader of the segment, it's not that good looking, I don't really know if it's sexier in and out than an A8, even, which has a better defined purpose. Tons of Panameras around here, and the new 5er is old to me almost, I've seen hundreds of them already.
