My New Daily Drive

I picked up my new (to me) daily driver. It's a 2005 Audi S4 cabriolet, in "sprint" blue, very similar to VSBL. I originally found a 2006 Mitsubishi Evolution MR with 4K miles, but after some research, it didn't do too well in NHTSA side crash test and I have a 4 y/o riding around with me so it didn't meet my needs. After all the S4 has 340 hp and is AWD, so it is in the same vein.

My previous daily driver was a 2006 Civic Hybrid (gone now, so you can stop busting my [email protected] Rich ) I'm not so worried about my loss in fuel efficiency because I have a 6 mile commute, my primary concern is that the hybrid battery pack is right behind the rear passenger seat where my daughter sits, and who knows the long term effects of radiation exposure that the battery emits. I have read that I shouldn't worry about it, bit oh well.

Picked it up from PA and had a great drive back to NY.

Here are some quick and dirty pics:

Topless is for chicks

You have increased your carbon footprint considerably. And after all the manly rides you used to have, you have some making up to do!

This one I will give you. but not all of them are, Porsche Cabs, Ferrari and Lambo Spyders aren't chick cars.

Once spring rolls around and I put the 19" wheels on it, it'll look more masculine.

Let's see, you are parked at a Donut Shop. The shadows are long, which could be morning, but there aren't alot of people. So it's mid/late afternoon. Possibly on a weekend. Plus the pickup in the driveway indicates that fellow is home from work. No leaves on the trees, indicates that it is indeed a current pic, so it's probably cold, so you stopped in for a cup of coffee with 2 cream and 4 sugars and then decided to get a chocolate frosted donut. From the fresh wear on the tires I can see that you've already tested it's acceleration and corning ability on your way to the donut shop.

Congrats on the new motor I wouldn't say no to getting an S4 myself. But if I had the money I'd definately go for an RS4
