    Saw some pics of the Boston Auto Show....I can't rememebr the damn city...it was seeing all teh cars that made me lose my memory. Anyway I like the R8 way more, it's the right fit for me, I'm not buying anytime soon, btu I just like the shape of it more. That red one....awesome car.

    Meh. Seen better. Audis are overrated, IMO. I used to have one, a 5 speed Audi Station Wagon from like 2002 or something like that. Nice car, but wasn't for me, my mom complained that it had to be taken in to the shop about once a month for repairs. I've also driven an A4, which was nice, but not as nice as my mom's 2007 Lexus IS350, which absolutely FLYS. I've seen their flagship car (Audi R8, it's the 2-door "exotic" car) and it's overrated. I talked to a guy back home that has one and he doesn't really think it was worth the sticker price.

    I like the design. Is it a concept car, or is that going to be the production model?

    It is technically a "concept car," but it will be nearly identical to the final Audi A7. I can't wait for it to come out. It looks much better than the mercedes CLS

    ^^^The Rapide is going into production this year.

    Check out the drinks cooler in the back.

    I'd be happy with a Jaguar XFR though.

    I like how everyone's copying the Lexus LS tailpipes now, they look sweet.

    And those LEDs in the front headlights...:p

    I disagree. Audis are far better handling than the Lexus. I had an A4 and I must say I had problems with it but they were much fun to drive. Got rid of that and have a Lexus IS 250 which is a nice car but not as fun. If Audis were more reliable, I would not pick another brand.

    Your digs at England are cringeworthy.

    Although you should see how red some people become when the sun so much as peeps through the clouds :roll:
