    Well it looks like I'll get the chance to order one in the next month or so. But I think my Sony N9000ES will be fine for the time being and I'm going to use that money towards an '03 Audi A4 1.8T Quattro [​IMG]
    So unless someone REALLY far down in line wants me to buy it and ship to someone else, I think I'll just be canceling my order when it's my turn.
    I really should slow down my HT upgrades anyway [​IMG]

    I am going the more frugal route, and getting the Passat in the 4 wheel drive version. I already cancelled my 950 and have decided to just get the Integra 6.3.

    Aww, C'mon, Brian
    The Polk LSi25's are infinitely more affordable than the Audi [​IMG]. BTW, what's up with the lack of reviews on the 950? Other cancellations? Dissatisfaction? Hiss?? The official review thread has been as dormant as the Lakers' offense. Jan

    brian, chip that sucker. I (my wife) got a VW 1.8T jetta, chipped and it flys, I can't keep the front tires from spinning, when traction control is off (4WD will be nice).

    Already have the 950 but I'm thinking about getting an '03 Infiniti G35. Didn't want Lexus 300 or Acura but wanted zoom zoom and high reliability with 4 doors. But it's a new modell so can't be sure about the reliability. But hope it is. Anything else I should consider in its price range?

    This thread is too funny and hits somewhat close to home.
    I had been waiting for a 950 for months, was very early on the reservation list, and had the cash in an envelope sitting on my desk. I wanted one of these BADLY.
    Unfortunately (for my Outlaw purchase), I recently acquired a 1990 Porsche 911. Lets just say that the cost of a gear box rebuild, clutch, etc., for the car far exceeded the amount of cash sitiing on my desk
    [​IMG]
    I cancelled my reservation as soon as I realised that I needed functional transport more than a new Pre/Pro.
    Oh well! At some point I do plan to buy the Outlaw, but then again, since I got the car, my thoughts of upgrades to my HT system have been supiciously dormant!
    BTW, the 911 is a fabulous car. I had wanted one since I was 14 or so, and must say that tooling around in a 911 is wonderful. Then again, my wife refers to it as a "money pit". I wish I had a good opposing argument!
    Enjoy you cars and your HT's! You guys with new car warranties make me envious.

    When I first saw the title of this thread I thought that either
    • Audi was running one killer of a sale
    • The 950 had increased dramatically in price due to last minute inclusion of fire wire, Logic 7 and nice knobs.
    Thanks for clearing things up.

    As some of you know. About 3 years ago I decided, upon retirement to treat myself to a Home Theater instead of a new set of luxury wheels. I have not regretted my decision one bit (no pun intended) and I estimate that my savings on the insurance alone pays for most of the software.
    I'm also willing to bet that 2-7 years from now I won't be looking to trade in my HT for a new one. New equipment? Of course. But I still think I'm ahead of the game.

    Well I need to buy a new car anyway. My fiance is driving a Neon that belongs to her Parents, and I hate that car. We have to give it back at some point so she's getting my Mystique. I was looking at the Passat but I want Quatto and a Stick (see the long thread in After Hours [​IMG])
    I'm looking at a 3 month wait after I order, so some time this fall.
    Don't worry RAF, someday I'll have a Home Theater that will rival yours [​IMG] but I'm turning 23 in a week so I've got lots of time.
    Besides I think we need to have a house before I can go that far... and we're not sure exactly where we will be living, so we're holding off on buying a new house.
    Besides we all know Outlaw will have a new pre-amp someday, perhaps we can do this all over again then. If nothing more I'm sure I can't wait forever to upgrade....

    for teh guys who are considering the G35, give it a test drive, you will be impressed. My family owns a group of dealerships and my father has been letting me drive one. I love this car. B&W and audi better be careful this will compete and is much more of a threat than the Lexus IS300.

    I was so impressed with the car, that I am double thinking getting my Nissan 350Z, in favor of the G35 sports coupe (lighter, 15+ more HP, and 6 speed stick avail in fall-compared to the G35 sedan).

    Well my Wife won't be driving my A4 for a while when I get it [​IMG] I won't trust her with the clutch for a while [​IMG]
    What does your wife think of the TT? It looked like a fun car, but I wanted a 4-door.
    I just have a thing for German cars, I don't know why... I'll buy japanese electronics, but I like the German cars better.
