      Re: autobild compares Audi A8 4.2 and BMW 750xi (Nightranger)

      that was a cool article - thanks. Some of it was hard to understand what they were trying to convey. German doesn't translate with English so easily i guess.

      Re: autobild compares Audi A8 4.2 and BMW 750xi (A4Jetta)

      A4Jetta - I've driven the Boxter and it was the best handling car I ever drove. You can't beat a mid-engine for balance. It was the base model but since the car is relatively light - it had plenty...

      more than the 8 speed transmission - it's the lower weight of the aluminum body
    8. Re: Inside Line Says Audi RS 5 in USA by Sept 2011. We Say They're Wrong. (4000sfan)

      to clarify my last comment - even though they confirmed the RS5 will come - I think they are taking too long.<br>The other point I was making about bringing the RS cars (though I understand why not...
    9. Re: Inside Line Says Audi RS 5 in USA by Sept 2011. We Say They're Wrong. (George@Fourtitude)

      I don't understand some of Audi's moves. I know the U.S. market is not the most profitable - but c'mon - the RS6, TT-RS and the RS5 should definitely be available here...even if only in small #'s. ...

      Re: autobild compares Audi A8 4.2 and BMW 750xi (D Clymer)

      Yeah - I'm not suprised at all that A8 beat the 7 series. Magazines here in the United States also rated the last version higher. Audi's have been making bigger leaps each generation in comparison...

      yeah - it's a great site. You made a good point that they left out that version. Maybe it was only licensed.<p>I check this site before that has good information: <A...

      George - are they correct in the weight distribution of the S4?? I don't see how it could still be 57% over the front....then was the old chassis 60%???<p>The TTS continues to be a sleeper in it's...

      just got my issue. What's most significant to me - as Jean Jennings notes on page 106 (and as listed on p. 42) - Audi had the most different vehicles that received votes (Chevy tied it - with both...

      I agree - the dynamics seemed to be judged more harshly than the last generation. Considering this new iteration with the 3.0T did so well - the new platform should do wonders. As a matter of fact...

      This is strictly about generating "buzz". Unfortunately, controversely sells better, so they will create it even when there is none. Most of the people on Autospies I see post don't like Audi - so...

      aeroforce - true it is a better deal now - but that's because it's close to the end of it's lifecycle (A6) - so they need to get it off the lot. My point was that the E-Class is brand new and is...
    19. Re: Edmunds InsideLine Drives the 2010 Audi Sportback Concept in Hollywood (aeroforce1)

      The A7 is not going to be a volume seller here in the U.S. also. Audi is not going to "buy market share" in the U.S. - they have made that clear. That's why the A6/8 are not cheaper. Mercedes...
