What else is new! What annoys me most is that the "Ultimate Bragging Machine" is 
so damn arrogant. Actually I think they are afraid of the A4Q, that's why they did 
not bring it to the party. I don't see WMB winning too many rallies or touring car 
championships. Instead they are winning the admiration of a certain gold chain set 
and "cafe racers".

An M3 "Automatic"?! An M3 "Luxury"?! Gimme a break, for crying out loud!

Like Phil Payne said, they concentrate on a sporty image, whereas Audi 
concentrates on sporty performance.

Can't wait, lemme no as soon as you get it on the car. I am thinking about it too.
