2008 Audi R8: It was a Dark and Stormy Night

December 15, 2008

A storm was brewing in Southern California, so I figured I'd get my weekly shopping done before it really kicked up. It was a strange night on Friday, the astrological Grand Cross was forming portentously in the sky, the clouds were crowding in, and the winds were calm. It was the calm before the storm.

I went to my local market and came out with about 7 bags of stuff. Then realized, oh crap, I have the R8. But as Mike mentioned in his last post, we just got the latch fixed on the Audi's trunk, so I opened the hood to reveal a seemingly tiny compartment. I turned to my passenger and said, "looks like you're holding some of this stuff on your lap."

But to my surprise, the R8's deep trunk held all of the bags with ease. It even had a handy light so I could see what I was doing in the dark. Not bad.
