I did see an S7 recently in a parking lot and it did look really nice. I like the A7/S7 a lot better than the A6/S6, even though the car was tempting me years ago. The lease killed it, was going to...

I got mine put on yesterday. Didn't end up being that deep where I live, although some areas around me got a lot more. Still, had a slushy snow on the ground and icy roads, and the tires handle...

I agree. I'm pretty frugal. I'm also in IT, so I do this kind of stuff all the time, dealing with software installs, configuration, etc. Even with that background, it was just another thing I...

Very nice! I really like the individual colors. I wanted to get Citrin black, but the the extra time required for the build would have put me out too far.

I was able to buy a three day U-Bahn pass for 15 Euro from the hotel. Great deal for unlimited rides in the city center. Germany is on what you would call a POP system, or proof of payment. Ticket...

Great story, and a really unique experience. I agree, once you take delivery once on an ED, it's difficult to imagine taking delivery any other way. Pretty impressive fuel economy too.

I hear you. I'm totally ruined now after doing a PCD and then an ED. The concept of taking delivery at the dealer is foreign to me.

I'd keep the LED lights. I love them, but they do not provide any additional illumination over the standard HID lights. They do give you LED turn signals, which was the main reason I chose them.
