2009 Audi A4 Avant Meets the 2010 Audi R8 V10
September 10, 2009
"So what are you in for?"
"Full Test. You?"
"Long-term. They bought me."
"Really, I'm only here for a week. But two of those guys, Ed and Dan I think, just drove me all over the place. We ran over a rabbit. They even took me to a dragstrip on grudge night. The Ed guy can sure throw gears."
"Sounds fun. I don't get to have much fun. I'm a wagon. I drop the kids off at school. And that Scott guy keeps putting his messy kids and shedding dog in me."
"That sucks. They just track tested me. I'm not as quick as that white GT-R over there but I'm close. You ever been track tested?"
"Yeah, but you know, it's not really my thing. Then I had this problem with my steering. The same problem as the red S5. Have you guys met?"
"Yeah, I was parked next to him yesterday. Good guy. But he seemed a little conceited. Like he loves himself or something. Maybe it's just all that color."
"No, but I did just do some lapping at Sears Point...I mean Infineon Raceway. I always do that."
"Me too. Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca. Give me a break. It's Laguna Seca and it always will be."
"Have you done a photo shoot yet?"
"Tonight, but I did do video."
"Ah, those video shoots take forever."
"I know, and we started at 6 am. Anything I need to know about the photo shoot?"
"Who's doing it? Kurt? Or Jacobs?"
"He's good, but don't let him take you to GMR. He has shot all of us at GMR. You deserve something fresh. I mean you're the new R8 V10 for goodness sake."
"Hell, here comes that Scott guy. His dog must have to go to the vet. Have fun tonight."
"See ya. Don't let that dog get to you. Keep your grille up."
