I Bet! I had an (used) A4 1.8t before the Subaru. Loved that car. then the timing belt popped. 5K of repairs, after that I swapped it for the WRX. Months later Audi writes me a timing belt recall letter. I sent the mechanic's bill and they refunded me the $5000.
I don't miss the luxury, but having the $ I would get an S4/5.

Why does that manual shifter say P-R-D next to it?!?

I can't stand that we've all become a bunch of auto drivers. It's so bad that a lot of vehicles aren't even offered manual anymore...

Well, it's a good thing you don't have to drive it. Technically, it's a DSG tranny like they put in race cars.

I bet that felt really good getting a huge check in the mail!

A friend of mine just got a new RS5. That thing is seriously sick.

Great car ToeCutter.... need to fix the stance (for the summer) a little and they look awesome, like this:




I had a B6 A4 Ultrasport and really enjoyed it, but it was getting up there in the mileage and had a few things that needed fixing (AC compressor went out, $1100-1500 to fix) and I said, F this I want something new with a warranty so I don't have to worry about anything for a few years.

Thing was great in the snow though. I had Cooper Weather Masters or something like that on it.

Nice ride. I like the gunmetal peelers.

Yeah I know they can shift MUCH faster than a manual, and they'll rev match downshifts and everything. Don't get me wrong it's a wonderful piece of technology but it's still neutered if you don't have a clutch and a stick you have to shift yourself.

They got rid of traction control in F1 because it made things too neutered, too sterile.

These. Not cheap, but I used them year round in Lake Tahoe and they were fantastic. Even when the roads were closed for people with chains and "dedicated snow tires" only, I'd always be allowed through, even though they were only A/Ts. They worked out nicely.
