Well that brought back a lot of memories. My German granddad had a brand new BMW 3 series. He kept it in a heated insulated garage and looked after it with loving care. Then had a stroke.

All the things that they say in that program ring true.

I love my German car. It's an amazing machine. I've driven several cars that were "comparable", but none really were comparable. Nothing I've driven (that was under $60k) even comes close to the exhilaration that car gives me from just driving down the road.

I will be buying Audis for the foreseeable future. Well done, Germany, well done.


“It’s what non-car people don’t get. They see all cars as just a ton and a half, two tons of wires, glass, metal, and rubber, and that’s all they see. People like you or I know we have an unshakable belief that cars are living entities… You can develop a relationship with a car and that’s what non-car people don’t get… When something has foibles and won’t handle properly, that gives it a particularly human quality because it makes mistakes, and that’s how you can build a relationship with a car that other people won’t get.”

She turned me into a NEWT. I got better, though.

I've been driving BMWs for 33 years. I'm on my sixth one.

I've never driven an Audi. Consider

I'd highly recommend a test drive before purchasing a new vehicle. A friend of mine recently bought a BMW 5 series and regrets it. He drove 3 Audis before that car and all 3 were more fun to drive.

I drive a TT Roadster and absolutely adore this vehicle. It's not the fastest car I've owned or driven, but it's the most fun. I jokingly call it "My Go-Kart" because it drives like it's on rails. I can throw the thing around a corner and be going 45 mph by the time I leave the curve and never slide or chirp the tires. People laughed at me when I bought such a small car saying that I'd regret it when the snow hits. I just responded by reminding them that Germany has lots of snow, they know a thing or two about driving in it. Then I laughed over the winter as my friends with big vehicles were complaining about slick road conditions and I was doing just fine with my quattro.

She turned me into a NEWT. I got better, though.
