Here was have a 2008 A5 3.2. It’s the geriatric enthusiast special: beige exterior, hideous 2-tone interior with bright wood tri(why the seats are not gray is perplexing), and yet, it has a manual... And also of note: only 37k miles.
I would be in the most inconspicuous vehicle ever. And — presumably, but who knows — in an Audi that wasn’t driven hard and still have a few thousand miles before the rear control arms go and the timing chain starts clattering...
Well anyway. Back to the grind.
