I'm just glad to see Audi didn't choose to make an suv. I read about there 
variable ride height thing, and it's pretty impressive. This is what those 
commuter/family types need, something that can transport stuff, 4wd, and is 
safe b/c of it's low center of gravity and handling. The ride height 
adjustment is a great bonus, although most suv owners will never need that 
extra ride height. Most people I see in the mud around here in CT are 4wd 
trucks, never seen an SUV, but I'm sure it's happened....

I wonder how well Audi will do w/ this. Most people are too dumb to 
understand this is better than a suv w/ fixed ride height. I wish all car 
makers would switch over to the allroad type design, I just think huge 
suv's are dangerous for all of us, not to mention a waste of money. I 
wonder why Ralph Nader hasn't declared suv's 'unsafe at any speed'? Maybe 
he drives one.
