This. I bought a JSW TDI after my E90 and kept it for ~11 months before I moved on to a F10. This really comes down to personal preference. I might have been driving a GS350 if the NAV display unit...

I remember the backup camera on my friends 2012 CTS-V having the clarity of a Logitec webcam from the early 1990's. That said, I would be very interested in the CTS Wagon, seeing as there is a...

I was hesistant to test drive the GS considering the lack of low end torque and the old 6 speed AT. However, in Sport+ mode the card was a beast. I loved many aspects of it - the interior is leagues...

I actually like the ride in the new M-Sport suspension. Not too soft - I suggest you drive with and without M-Sport to see which one you like.

Amen - I absolutely loved the 528i. About the only thing I hated was the single exhaust at the back. To belittle this due to a 4 cylinder under the hood is not doing this car justice.

Hello World

Been lurking around here a bit, and finally pulled the trigger on a F10.

Jon, I assume this would be a lockable deal like last years? Or do I need to take delivery before year end?

True and A4/A6 have interiors that make wonder why auto magazines rave about them. Especially the B8 A4 with the Grey/Beige interiors - ugh :thumbdwn:.

Going off the pics, the interior for the 6GC seems positively delicious - more so than the A7 (never a fan of Audi interiors) and the CLS.

That said, it seems to be way overpriced for what I can...

I would skip ordering Luxury line if I could get a wood trim in the interior base model. I do not mind spending on a BMW, but the Luxury/Modern lines are pretty pathetic.
