Talking Seeing Alot Of A5/S5, X6, & 135 On Roads Now

just today i saw x2 a5 (beautiful), x1 s5, x2 x6s and another on a flatbed, a 135 coupe and a conv. anybody else see the x6 on the road? they are a real head turner. looks much better than the x5.

on a side note, i was in the city today and every 10 seconds, literally you will see a black s550 lol. also saw two maybachs as well. cab service perhaps?

i also saw a most fucked up thing today. going to the city there is a flatbed truck with a benz c300 on and at the end it has a white 335i coupe being towed behind it. the rear was lifted so it was running on two front wheels and everytime there was a minor ditch or something i would see the front bumper scrape so badly.

also i saw the new sl550 on the road today first time and they are very aggressive. better for me i guess lower cost on future sl55

Gotta love the new A5/S5. The headlights are phenomenal! I'm still not sure about the X6. I think my problem with it is the Pontiac-like extreme features. I'm sure it will grow on me in time. I wasn't nuts about the e90 body style when it came out either. Now I'm a fanatic!

Do you live in East New York by Kelvin (e90fanatic)?

I saw a 120d hatch parked in the lot near his building. That day we parked in the lot and took the ferry over for the NYIAS.

Test drove a X6 the other day and i have to say its pretty damn slow for a twin turbo...the car felt sluggish...my friend and I took the car for a test drive without the SA and we kind of beat on it to see what it had, I was quite disappointed at the power output, but the handling of it was awesome...those big rear rubbers really glued the car to the road....

I'm guessing you test drove the 6 and not the 8 cylinder one? I'm sure the TT 8 would be a MONSTER!!! lol!

lol! I know the 6 is a TT too. I'm pretty sure it's the same N54 engine as in our cars. But you also have to remember the weight of the X6 vs. e9x.

You make me want to test drive the 8TT. lol!

I work close to an Audi dealer so I see a few S5/A5 even an R8 here or there.
haven't seen one 1 series yet, figured it would be all over here, since the 3 is about as exclusive as a civic.

Probably not since diesel prices are going through the roof.

I saw a maroon red IS-F today on 80E near Paterson, car looked pretty agressive except for the ugly exhaust in the back...car was brand new and was in the right lane just cruising

The driver was a mid 30's female in what looked like an expensive business suit with her hair tied up, she looked pretty hot

My buddy's neighbor got the S5 when it first came out. Guess he was on the waiting list early. Every time I go to his house to hang out I see it on the driveway. And every time I think I should have waited for the S5 to come out to buy that instead. At least for a little while. It looks fantastic. Haven't seen IS-F on the road yet though, or an X6.
