      TheStraightPipes audi’s infotainment us by far better than merc n bmw. I want you to review rs3, love the five cylinder sound.
      Try to also compare it with M2 and c43 n let us know how it stacks up against them. I know they are all not in the same segment

    Audi.., didja just hear that verdict from Yuri (?) ?, he's absolutely right U know..,on especially the radiator-grille design of the TT's being the best or most handsome. (Yuri's opinion aside) Contrary, her other siblings' grille, most looked seemingly vulgar by comparison. The distasteful portion is where the bottom-half of the others' front façade (the area where the fender once used to be), that chin area, that bottom overhang that juts out too much in reference to the front wheels, thus from allowing it to be proportionately perfect. As things stood for this, the A8 & other siblings', that had a near similar design from the same core template they all shared, it looked unproportionate that this undesirable overhang being there, seemingly lurching, as opined by a good few car review commentators.
    For since the Audi Brand today is understood to adopt the what is now so-called AWD, what is in essence an advanced 4 by(x) 4 drive system of Her respectively known "Quattro" trade-mark insignia, now employed across the board in all of Her upper-end models along with Her respective version of the All Wheel Steering System. So what really is there to restrict the 'Wheel Base' from being longer or in actuality the front axle being set farther afront & the sed offending "Chin" protrusion get tucked in to make it all look absolutely perfect, how all cars shud look in the 1st place. Since they now mostly have AWD, those that have this feature can be sed to no longer anymore need to compensate for forward gradient climb tire traction, what all 'Front Wheel Drive' vehicles require their engines' weight at the far-off front extremities to assert a certain down-force to weigh-down the front end. Hence, the engine needs to be mounted farther afield forward of the front wheels in order to obtain traction proper from the weight the engine naturally provides.
    Cant say the contrary that car reviewers everywhere alike's findings can be at all wrong in all of their respective deliberation & it's genuine what they testified of Audi recent makes' achievements. In all fairness, of the 4 major German automotive marques, in terms of external aesthetics, none had as many winners for looks than the Bimmer (BMW).

    Funny how it looks like the KIA Stinger from now 2 years ago. Before all you KIA haters even chine in, the Stinger was designed and out the door before the A7 and yes, a former Audi engineer has been working for KIA since 2011. Now they have BMW people as well.

    A quick suggestion: could you also give a gas/brake pedal firmness rating for car that you review in the future? This information is hard to find and will be unique. I drive a golf and I also sometimes drive my wife’s Lexus. The striking difference is how firm the pedals are (and the doors are). Golf is very firm and it is less relaxing to drive during long commute. My knee hurt and required physio therapy at one stage. Also in general, what is your ranking of pedal firmness for VW, audi, BMW and Benz, Lexus and Mazda? Great reviews thank you!

      You still can choose it in the car funfigurator between 3 diffrent wood types - if you wan´t .E.g:
      Most Press cars are fitted with the best selling features. I think all luxuary German Brands offer wood trim as option in and above above the midle class. The walnut trim is at Audi a ca. $900 option, birch wood is without extra charge.
