Loss here, too, but satisfied never the less...
Making a pitstop off of I-95 north between D.C. and Baltimore on Wednesday -- otherwise I would have been way too early to my morning meeting. So I get US-29 north to pick up US 32 back over to I-95:
First there's a first gen Tiburon which I'm generally ignoring, MMYOB for the most part, trying to goad me into a race, but then an Audi RS-4 enters the hwy. 420 hp, AWD, the RS-4 was a possible alternative I was looking at when I purchased the Goat. It saw me, and took off like a bullet with the Tib lagging behind. The traffic was thick, and the RS was jinking in and out through traffic, and before long he was doing at least 140mph if not more once he got clear of the pack.
I just sat back a watched. I wasn't going to blast through traffic like that. Besides, being from Va., with the new "abusive driver" charges -- even though I was in Md. at the time, I just don't want to cause an unnessary wreck with other "innocent bystanders".
Pretty amazing car (the Audi, certainly not the Tib), but at $72K, I'm quite happy with my 20 hp less for $40k less.
Would have been fun on a closed track, but I let it go...
Oh, and the Tib hadn't a chance against the Audi.
