Alan,

I wouldn't call this car awesome.
Now I know the power it delivers is nice, but you do get used to it. Moreover, you absolutely don't need it to have fun. But...

Where is the fun in all that weight?
Where is the fun in AWD?
Where is the fun in all those electronic safety systems?
Where is the fun in big bills?
Where is the fun in not being able to work on your car?

This car is just to move from A to B in a comfortable and relatively quick way. Once the novelty of the power has worn off, it's just an Audi AWD. Unless you drive it on a loose surface, it's no fun on a perfect 'drivers' road.

John

Wouldn't be much use on that back road near our house John...........probably wouldn't get over that bridge or get any 'air' on the straights!
