I will agree with you on your point that all cars are different, a
nd it's almost useless to compare them. They each have thier own unique person
ality, and should be respected for it. The only thing I am noticing in the 90'
s is a lot of cars lacking 'any' particular personality.
I used to own a '90 Honda Accord EX. I needed a car that was econ
omical at the time. But, I soon realized that I was paying a far greater price
by not owning a car I could truly enjoy. Everyone used to rant and rave about
how great Hondas are, but I didn't see what the big deal was. I had a nothing
but complaints about it. And the dealer never did anything right--they were a
ll a bunch of morons, even the service manager. The brakes were horrible; they
cracked after 3 mos. and I switched rotors and went to Repcos. The dealer tol
d me that I should only put Honda factory parts on the car and I was asking for
trouble, but see how far the factory parts got me. Well, I could go on forever
but the truth is it's and OK car--got me from point A to point B, but no person
ality. It did everything OK, but nothing great. It was so blahh.
I'm venting aren't I. Sorry.
The point I'm trying to make is that most cars have a distinct pe
rsonality, and people have their own personalities. I think that Audi owners o
ften have simmilar personalities, as thier cars do. But Audis are different fr
om Porsches, and so are thier owners--they can be very different. Audi owners
seem to be the most down-to-earth and nice people I've ever met. The quattro n
et just supports this.
I like Audis because they are an enthusiasts car--built and race
developed by entusiasts for enthusiasts. I also like them for their driveabili
ty and thier practicality. It is meant to be an every-day car.
Do you get what I'm trying to say? Thanks for letting me expre
ss myself--that was a long one.
