My buddy had one of the new car mags (Road and Track I believe it was) and they had a blurb on the A5 w/ manual tranny. Car got great reviews (of course) but what really surprised me was that the 0-60 time they achieved. According to R & T, their 0-60 time was a blazing 5.5 seconds as opposed to the factory quoted 5.8! Does that seem right? When I test drove the A5, I didn't get on it all the way because traffic was heavy. Just looking for your thoughts.

In other news, I found out my '09 delivery that was quoted for early fall '08 was now pushed out until March '09. I'm filled with chagrin. . . yet the car will be worth the wait. That I am sure of!

Yeah. I'm coming home form Iraq and buying through a military seller. Plus, purchasing from over here qualifies me for sales tax exemption. For the price I'm getting it at, I gotta wait!

Let me know when you test the car.

True, the exemption only applies if your living out of state, but have a home in another state. Believe me, there is plenty of paperwork required because the government wants to get theirs. The place where I got mine through you can find by going to the audi site and clicking on the discount link and then clicking on military personnel. I'm only paying $700 over the invoice price- that is, according to consumer reports.
