 Nice. I plan on purchasing an SQ5 soon. 

We looked at the Q5/SQ5 back in Jan. when my wife was looking for an SUV, we test drove it and it felt smaller and more cramped than we were looking for in an SUV so we passed. Plus my wife wasnt a huge fan of the MMI interface either, we were looking at used models to it didnt have the touch screen like some of the newer models have.

You owned an Aztek... clearly your judgment in cars is not to be trusted 😃

One of the most functional cars I've ever known. Rear seats didn't even just fold down, you could take them out entirely. I camped, I kayaked, I fished, I took my dog all over the place, I traveled, I golfed… Was perfect.

And it drove pretty well, too, for something that size.

Off topic, but I'm the OP so I think it fits. For those that don't want to read it. The best line is: "It’s so powerfully ugly that a blobfish wouldn’t be seen next to it."

Why would I want a tiny car typically driven by those with penis envy

This reminds me of a conversation I had with my wife today about our driveway plowing contract. They come out if there is at least 3 inches of snowfall. We only got 2 inches last night, but my wife thought it was close to 3.

I had to break the long held marital secret that what I was telling her was 3 inches all of these years is actually only 2 inches.

The question is in your garage...I have a huge shop...🤣. So with unlimited funds, the garage would be whatever SUV my wife wanted and I'd take a brand new Crew cab Ford truck. I'd save the toys for the shop...😀. Is that cheating the question?

I never said it was cute.

Okay, this is a topic which I'm sure will be fun to hear the answers from the group of folks here on TST. 

On a conference call yesterday my boss lead off with this ice breaker question: You can only put two cars in your garage. However, let's assume you have unlimited funds. If you can only own two cars which two cars would you own? Remember cost doesn't matter, but you can only own two cars. By the way they don't have to be cars. Trucks, vans, sport utes are also acceptable. No airplanes, helicopters or hover crafts. 

I actually had to go first. Having never though about the question before I went with a Tesla Model S and a Dodge Ram 1500 TRX. --- I was mocked for being a little boring. But, I stand by my answer. 

Okay, so what two cars would you put in your garage? 

A 2021 Audi A4 and a skateboard.  The latter is soon to be an Olympic sport.

My wife's and my girlfriend's - just not at the same time, hopefully...    🙂

Eh, it’ll be my daily driver. My wife already has our family vehicle. I think it’ll fit my needs.

I'm garaging my two favorite vehicles: a Volkswagon Thing and a 1971 Ford F-100...Two tone, red and white, with 5 yellow lights on the top of the cab.  Pull up to a keg party in the latter and someone is going to say..."Hey ya'll...there's a tow truck here".

Pull up in the Thing and someone is going to say... "Hey y'all... did someone call the National Guard? Were we rioting?"

Yeah the SQ5 would be great then if you already have a family vehicle. 350hp and a 0-60 of 5 seconds is plenty quick for most people especially in an SUV. I like the fit/finish and styling of Audis in general, I was really close to getting an S5 Sportback a couple months ago until I test drove a Tesla Model 3 :whistle:

    • Waiting for Friday morning. 
    • And it's being hailed as some great move, like the stupid spaceman astronaut mannequin thing. Has a European ever even gone to outer space, or have they all been Russians and Americans? 🙂 (Mostly joking, as I'm sure there have been, on the International Space Station or something.) I think it's dumb.
    • Odd move to gain support. They even went with Packers colors. No chance fans are switching over getting a cheese hat thrown to them in stands.  Golf Digest writer does not share the same opinions as I. 
    • I'm completely on the other side of the "brilliant move" by the Euros today: I think it was a stupid move. They look like morons, their move is SUPER transparent, and half of the spectators might be Bears fans.
    • It may be more fun to go for the green on the course, but it's much more fun dipping into your friends pockets after the round. With golf being a game of good misses, I'll play boring golf all day long. Risk vs reward, just like everything else in life.
