    test drove a 98 a4 coupe

    it felt really sloppy, only had 40k miles on it, but the car seemed to shudder alot upon acceleration and the car felt kinda sluggish, almost heavy, like it was weighted in the rear.

    the a/c was very "airplane-noiseish" like you could hear the belt or something spinning/whistling when it was on?

    I did like the turning radius though.

    so are these normal things about a vette?

    That dont sound normal for AC. Are you dead set against a 6-speed vette? They are such a smooth ride and the 6 speed is great.

    Ben Stiller movie.

    I was considering an a4 b/c i wanted michelle to be able to enjoy it too..well, i've never seen her in more fear of fucking up then i did watching here try to drive the a4 around the parkinglot...so she's pretty much not intrested in the car at all and now i can get what i want.

    I have a feeling maybe a grand off. My 99 coupe with heads up, polished 2000+wheels, etc. went for $20,500 and had 61k.
