Eh, I don't see why one should let others have such an effect on oneself where it changes your opinion on things.
Even if TCL were full of TornadoGT1's, it shouldn't affect how one feels about Audi/VW and most fanboys are anywhere close as bad as TornadoGT1.
I have a long relationship w/ BMWs, but still, it has been BMW drivers who have cut me off a no. of times (while driving rentals).
That's not what's been souring me on BMWs; it's the design language w/ those goofy/droopy front ends.
