      Heck, if you're a west sider, keep your eyes open for my buddy's black CTS-V coupe zipping around. Watching him dodge potholes the size of the grand canyon in Ohio City is fun. ;-)

      He, too, put on...

      That's great to hear. Pre-2012 B8 A4s are prone to the oil consumption issue. Audi has been pretty good about covering the issue if the car fails a series of consumption tests. It's a well known...

      I'd suggest that an A4 with the sport suspension is worth it for the seats alone. The stock units are flatter than a pancake. Note: the base BMW and Merc seats are no better.

      I've learned that most people have no idea how to negotiate - they just go with the "what's the least you'll take?" line. I've found that there are two successful ways of countering that request:

      What an entertaining thread.

      I think a lot of these stories can be concluded with the phrase, "the world is full of idiots - car shopping just proves it." ;)

      Of course, this also proves the...

      The 8" Discover Pro should come standard on the Autobahn package along with the lighting package.

      My hope is that everyone at AoA is on the same page as corporate. AoA has been driving for stronger residuals and better brand equity these past 10 years, and avoiding the temptation to whore...

      Dude, that new Yukon and Tahoe are pretty badass looking trucks. I'm not a big SUV fan, but I would seriously consider one of these if I were in the market.

      As for momentum, we've got excellent...

      I am perfectly happy with 18s on a car of this wheelbase. Anything larger and, IMO, ride quality really begins to suffer. This is especially true if you live in an area with less than perfect roads. ...

      I'm *really* surprised that the lighting package is not standard on the Autobahn models, considering all they really add is Climatronic and Nav. We're talking $30k and Xenons aren't standard?...

      For the sake of clarification: is DCC available as a standalone option, or must it be purchased with the Performance Pack?
    14. I think you'll always be best served by going...

      I think you'll always be best served by going with a dedicated set of snow shoes if you have any form of winter accumulation where you live.

      As to the value of the PP for the 'average daily...

      Did you drive the new 2.0T or the 1.8? I've been in both and I wouldn't consider them to be "wheezy".

      Yeah, no doubt the chassis on the ATS is outstanding. Puts the current 3-series to shame, actually.

      The whole move to Puebla was to allow not necessarily lower prices, but higher level of content. One of, if not the biggest complaint from American consumers of the Golf/GTI in particular has been...

      I'm impressed that we get DCC with the Performance Pack for a whopping $800 additional in the Autobahn package. Very nice.

      Still sad that the cloth seats are only available on the base model....

      +1 - the worst time to purchase is March - June: tax returns infuse a lot of cash back into the economy. Used and new car prices both hold very strong during this time. July-September usually gets...

      Audi made a last minute decision to make dual zone climate control standard across the board - but cars were already on the boat to the US by that point in time. As a result, US-spec cars without...
