Default Fresh off the boat

Took delivery this morning! I think I'll call her Scarlett.

2014 A4 P+ w/Manual
Brilliant Red / Chestnut brown
Walnut inlay
Sport Package
MMI Navigation Plus
B&O Stereo
Side Assist

Traded in my 2001 A4 of similar config, but all I can say after putting a good 200mi on the car today is "wow". What a difference. Love this car!

Now that's how to do an A4! I think every unit should have the sport package standard. This is the best appearance.
Congrats, great taste.

Indeed it was! How'd you guess?

Picked up the car in the AM, then arranged for a baby sitter for the afternoon so my wife and I could spend some quality time with the new car Drove up to Hamilton/Ipswich, spend some time on the great secondary roads up there, and went for a nice walk on Crane Beach to boot.

Did you clean the treads of the tires before the photo? If yes, sneaky! ; )

I live in Rhode Island, but one of my daughters lives about 10 minutes from Cranes and we go there quite a bit in the summer. For some reason, I recognized the parking lot/dune combo....a great place to take your photo and your car looks terrific!

I no longer own my A4 - we still own an A3 sportback - but I agree that the A4 has to have a sport package - mine did not and the seats alone were reason I wish I had had one. I now drive a Buick Regal, which is very similar to the A4 with sport package in terms of seating and suspension.

Although my wife probably wouldn't have batted an eye at that - no! All hard packed sand to that point so the tires just stayed nice and clean.
