    I arrived safley home last night from picking up my car. Almost exactly 500 miles, I broke it in per recommendation and got on it a bit on the last stretch.

    Im absolutely amazed by this car and the a8 tranny. No matter where you are at in the rev range, or how fast you are going, when you ask for more it comes flowing out likeNiagara falls. Its quite simply breathtaking. And then there is the sound....omg that sound. Its so angry....

    But the crown jewel is that a8. Paddle shifting under load sounds like your breaking the sound barrier with a loud instant thud. Its intoxicating.

    Sadly, and I say this as a hobbiest photog i lugged my camera all the way there and forgot to charge my battery so good pics will be coming eventually.

    For now here are a few phone shots.

    Mpgs were suprising. I drove all they way from madison wi, past chicago Il roughly 200 miles and still had half a tank left when i filled it up. Made it home 510 miles on 2 half tank fill ups. Granted i drove like a normal human the first 300 lol
