My new ride. - Page 6

> was expecting pictures of a WRX
> is disappointed



but hey, as long as you like your new ride, then I'm happy for you. If I ever get a new car, I do want a WRX though. The funny thing is, the reason I want a WRX is because I don't think they look racer-ish at all apart from the hood scoop. If you bought a hood without the scoop, it'd pretty much look like any other 4-door car (I'm not considering the 5-door/hatchback version, were you? I'm kind of thinking you were, judging by the appearance of the Audi you bought?).

but, I currently drive a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant, which I'm really happy with for the time being

Hehe, I didn't purchase the Bang and Olufsen sound system upgrade. I heard both and it didn't blow me away so i went with the stock system. (Not that i could choose anyway since there was only 1 Q5.)

One thing, WHY WHY WHY! did you buy auto?
Only auto brah. But i do have "tiptronic". Q7 is too expensive mang. The TDI = auto pr0n. But tips 70k >_<

I really wouldn't mind a WRX, but when people see me in one. They instantly think the stereotypical teen racer who doesn't care about anyone else on the road. That's what really got me to reconsider my choices.

Hey.. a rechip on the ECU gives the Q5 major performance boost. Something around +50hp and 40ft/lb torque. But that voids the manufacturer's warranty.

Very nice Q5 looks like a dream to drive.

How's it handle?
You couldn't tell it's an SUV honestly. I've driven many.. 4runners, fj cruisers, f-150s, grand cherokees, q7s (i test drove it ^^), x5, MDX, RDX. None of them compares to the Q5.. It's just so damn planted. Feels just like a small car. It's amazing.

I was considering the 5-door The hood scoop and wide-body kit = auto boy-racer. But then the non-wide body doesn't look as nice :S.
