My car shopping has just gotten a little easier. While I've long thought the Subaru Outback would be the sensible purchase, I've been hankerin for an Audi Quattro wagon. The Audi is looking more and more sensible.
Once you've lived with Audi interiors, it's hard to go back to most other marques. And German cars are designed to go 120+mph on the Autobahn, and even at a mere 80, they just feel different. And it's a really good "different".
GM may be getting a clue, however. GM spent considerable suspension development time for the CTS-V at the Nurburgring. I'll look at one closely, on the next go-around. With the current exchange rates, I expect it to be a really competitive choice.
