Went to Vegas on Sat AM to meet my friend who just bought a 2010 Audi S4. We drove back on Saturday.

What a car. 7 speed DSG transmission. The thing shifts like an F1 car, it feels like. V6 supercharged. AWD. 19" rims with nice Dunlop rubber. Interior is plush, and the Bang & Olufsen 16 speaker system is completely off the hook. The nav is nice, and the iPod integration is really sweet.

Got picked up at the LV airport on Sat AM around 9, went to Craig road and filled up. I drove. We're leaving Vegas, just flowing with traffic, not even in the clear yet, and I get this.....

Lolz.....super weak. Cited for 85 in a 75. :shrug: I think I was following a frickin' Saturn, but whatever. I guess the state needs the money. Valentine was tracking one radar signal behind us, and never indicated another signal. Maybe he was fishing, but no big deal.

Into Southern Utah, and saw this:

Which is really fun, because you're not really even speeding till you're going 90.

We went to a friend's private property, and got to drive on his private road a little.

I'll repeat: private road, closed, and permission of the landowner. No laws being broken.

The car is governed at 155, which it hits without even breathing hard.

I've gotta say, this is one heck of an impressive car. It's dead steady at 150, and the torque is like nothing I've ever experienced from a V6. Coming up Vail pass from the West (the steep way), we had to slow down for a car in the left lane. Car moves over, and we're back up to speed virtually instantly.

I give this thing 4.9 out of 5 stars. Just one heck of a well-built machine.

Lol, whatever you do, don't go drive one, because you'll buy it. If you're thinking of upgrading the Lex, it would be a good choice.

Dude it's a frickin AWESOME ride. The power is nuts. The transmission is completely nuts. My bud bought it with 14k miles, paid 42 out the door, I think loaded up it was close to 50 new.
