New Car! - December 2005

I ordered a new car! It's the very fun-to-drive, five door Audi A3 with the 3.2L V6 and all wheel drive (Quattro). Unfortunately, most of these pictures are of the 2.0L front wheel drive version – fun, but it didn't make me smile like the amazing low end torque on the 3.2 version which also has the sport suspension of the S-line package.... sweet! Unfortunately, all the 3.2's in the western United States have the "open sky" roof option and I'm too tall for that. So, I had to order one and wait for production, overseas shipment, delivery, etc. Hey, but this little guy has enough room that I can sit behind the driver's seat adjusted for me! (Heh, why would I give up the driver seat though!?) It's actually faster and handles better than my Supra, has better mileage, has all wheel drive and is tons more practical with a real back seat and I can even sit up straight in the driver's seat without hitting the roof! Now... which color??
