	i hear the X3 handles spectacularly.

	i'm looking forward to the Q5, assuming it's on the A4 platform.

	is there one in europe?  i didn't see any at the plant in
ingolstadt last month, though i did see the newest not-yet-in-US
cars there.  i don't follow this stuff really closely, and given
the Q5 concept, i thought the allroad was dead and they were going
to multiple Q cars to replace it.

	i drove a Q7, it was fun.  if i had to tow a boat on weekends
or whatever, i'd consider it.  though i would prefer a 1991 power ram
with a banks boost kit, but those don't scale well to growing a family
to take on boating trips.
