    Went to Glasgow Audi showroom the other day to have a look since me and my gf had nothing to do. We were looking for a space to park next to the other audi's outside. Driving along the carpark, I saw one of the most beautiful Audi Ive ever seen! I practically just stopped and stared at it, not even the company's flagship R8 next to it could stop me looking away. Yes Im talking about the new Audi S5 coupe:hubbahubba: stunning in every angle honestly. The one I was looking at was pearl black and it just ooozed class (pictures dont do it justice btw). I looked out my window and just drooled over the front end for a few good seconds before I got out my car and checked it out. Amazing looking machine! Looking at the aggressive evil looking front end first, I thought to myself that I wouldnt like to see that in my rear view mirror. The other thing that just grabbed my attention was the aluminium wing mirrors, perfectly contrasted to the pearl black paint which just adds extra presence to the car and screams YES im an "S" Next I checked out the rear end and just loved it, from its chrome quad exhausts to the subtle boot spoiler. The side view wasnt bad at all either, loved all the curvy contours which brings the shapes to life creating alot of shadows. Hey those 19 inch alloys werent bad either! which fitted perfectly under the big arches. I only had a little peak inside the interior as I needed a key to get in but the interior is typical Audi, beautifully designed and excellent quality. Yep that made my day, knowing I had a dream to chase, to get me one of these sum day:) And oh, one more thing, nice looking R8 next to it... but just didnt grab my attention like the S5 coupe did. Good job Walter De' Silva:icon_thumright: I salute you.... and the rest of us.

    A chap at the end of my road has one in black, and it is definitely a head-turner. Still not totally sure if it's a great shape, but the S5 has real presence.

    it seems every marque has released at least one old dog of a vehicle.

    A2 is a damm good car and far better than a lot of Audis in terms of reliability and running. It was a long way ahead of its time, its a real shame it didnt get the support it needed from Audi UK.

    Our A2 TDI was better than a Prius on CO2, if that is the future of motoring then it's not so bad.

    Wait for another 15-20 years and you will still see the A2s going strong due to their aluminium chassis. Only then will people realise how good they actually were.

    I love the S5's and was fortunate enough to borrow one for a night, anyone for a dribble....
