What's even worse, is that just about every review of an Audi I've seen
says "if it weren't for the crappy tires on this car, and if it weren't
so underpowered, and if it had a manual transmission, (and oh by the way
the cupholders suck) we'd say it was the best of the bunch."  So what do
we get?  "By popular demand, better cupholders!"
