	The Cougar does not in any way compare to the Audi TT and I was not

	get higher margins.  I was just pointing out the use of the "Edge"

	the early eighties implemented the "Edge" styling prior to his
	retirement. And yes, my cousin that works at the design center said
	Audi heavily influenced the Taurus Aerodynamics and design.
