Yeah. Lobster is good there too. Probably would've lapped Saintor in getting his car.

And yeah, the 2016+ Camaro as well as the 718 Cayman are two of my favorite looking cars on the road today. No, they also haven't changed all that much from their predecessors, but I like them all the same.

Btw, those sport seats look striking. I really like the "quilted" leather look. Very exotic looking.
Agreed, and as I said, the original S5 is still one of the sexiest cars I've ever seen. The only issue I have with the current one is that Audi has basically sharpened the original design, with more wedges and angles rather than the softer curves of the original. But once I saw those Sportbacks with proper wheels and ride height I came around. The white one with the gold wheels looks killer!

Audi interiors have been setting the standard for years now and this new one is no exception! I do have to say that the new G70 interior is extraordinary, and you can really tell just how much Hyundai's scalping of top German designers and engineers has paid off!!

Yup...they put me into a 2019 Q8. Pretty nice cross-over thingie. The all-digital console is very nice.

Feels a bit like my FX overall though obviously given the platform.

I'm really curious about the new Audi touch interface. I really like the current setup, though

Very very very cool. It is definitely...cool. Audi IMO, knows interiors. I would not kick the S5's interior out of bed but dayum, this new all-digital GUI for the center console is pretty neat in the Q8. Same one for the new A6 and A7.

Though, Geebus help you if the screens go dead.

I love having loaners, helps broaden the overall car experience, trying something new.

If I were in NorCal, I would've been in proximity to slap the smug grins off of a few people long ago.


But, sadly, not very close. By the look of things, I look like I'm closer to Alaska.

Glad you got your car back, H. Looking forward to comparing notes.

I had it for six months. It is cool. I let it lapse when I decided not to pay AT&T $480 for 18 months of wireless access since I use my phone GPS. I still pull up the map view at times when I am in an unfamiliar area and want to see what streets are around since the VC is much more panoramic than the phone.

I really like the map view, but for navigation CarPlay/Android Auto works well, too. VC is amazing.
