    I don't know how many of you remember all my posts about what type of car to get, sport suspension or not, and much more from a while ago....
    Well I finally picked up my new baby this Saturday and took some pictures this afternoon.
    It's cloudy out so the car looks black, though it's actually Ming Blue with Blue Leather interior:

    It's an Audi A4 3.0 Quattro 6-Speed, with 97 miles on it (14 miles when I picked it up)

    Man, the interior looks plush!!! Very classy looking car! How does the V6 and the 6 speed match up, must be pretty quick.

    I've got stories about that car...
    I was working at a car show, and one of my friends brought a rental with Tiptronic.
    Let's just say it corners really well, and it's not a nice feeling fearing for your life.
    Oh, and when you know nothing about the Audi, figuring out how to open the little door for the gas tank can take a very long time.
    And Congratulations! That car is capable of more things than you can imagine. (unless, of course, you already have)

    Pick me up at the NE corner of Southdale Mall @ 6 pm, Thursday. I'll make sure I wipe the soles of my Nike's before I slip into that perfect ride.

    Congrats, Brian. Although, how the hell are you going to bear to drive that during our winters? With all the gravel and stones kicked up from traffic ahead?

    Show us a shot of her behind [​IMG]
    I believe this is the model with the dual-exhaust, or maybe I'm mistaken.

    Congrats Brian, that's a nice car. I'd love to own an A4, if I can ever get a job that pays well enough... [​IMG] I'll have to stick with my Saturn for a few more years I guess.

    Even with the quattro, the winter tires will be a huge plus. I have a '97 E36 328i with a set of Blizzaks and with traction control, the snow tires are so much better than the performance Bridgestone Turanzas that were stock.

    Good luck with the new set of wheels!

    Brian,

    I remember that thread. Congrats fellow Audi Owner! P.S. Ming Blue is a cool color, I'd post pics of mine, but I don't have a digital camera.

    Enjoy!

    Congratulations on your new ride Brian! From my test drives of the Audi A4 it seemed like a great car. The Ming Blue was also my favorite color. I'm sure that you'll enjoy it for many years to come.

    wow! [​IMG] I truly love Audi's. I think they are just gorgeous cars. A4 & S4 are my favourite... and everytime I see a TT on the road it brings a smile to my face. [​IMG]

    It's hard to tell Brian, but does it have a sunroof? Every A4 I've ever seen has a sunroof and removes me from considering one since I'm so tall.
