Well, if I’m being real for a moment, I would never buy an RS5 new. It’s a German Mustang that is less fun than a Mustang and, honestly, not actually as nice inside relative to the Mustang as that price-tag would have you believe. Still nicer, but not +$40,000 nicer. What I would entertain the thought of buying new is Read more

Navarra Blue is stunning in the sunlight. A shame so few are kept on the lot in the sea of grey-scale.

A stock RS5 is not actually all that loud even open; a TT RS makes it sound downright sociable.

I see mixed reviews of Dynamic Steering. The only reason I would want it is because it supposedly has a faster ratio in Dynamic (it’s fixed ratio even with Dynamic Steering when you put it in Dynamic mode) than the standard steering and it supposedly provides better feedback. But I haven’t driven one yet, most cars on Read more

They removed it on on the A3 because it takes too long to come back when you put the car into reverse. The infotainment display is where all of the proximity sensor displays and the camera display are placed and they are not supported by the center gauge cluster. Read more

My commute is from a suburban neighborhood to a suburban office complex. It takes place primarily on highways and then really short connecting roads. There are no winding roads going where I’m going that I can stretch the handling of a car on that aren’t residential. What I am given ample opportunity to do, on a daily Read more

Sounds like a less awesome GT350. Yawn.

And it’s still no faster than the less expensive versions! Nearly $30k for what Mazda is offering at the top of the Mazda 3 range is kinda raw if you are an enthusiast.

The people trying to tell me a Mazda 3 is plenty quick for its segment while ignoring that Mazda wants to move to a higher segment with it.

Sounds like you had a sketchy Audi dealer; mine has been nothing but pleasant apart from the irritating “WE WANT TO BUY YOUR CAR!” emails they send me periodically (it’s a lease, guys, chill). Not gonna lie, though, if you got a post-refresh M3 that is a major step up from the RS3 in driving dynamics. Read more

Don’t say that too loudly, you’ll get the numpties raging at you for not being satisfied with your “already quick” 6-second acceleration.
