Summary: This is my first Audi. My wife and I bought it because its the FIRST car we have ever had that satisfies both of our wants, wishes and desires! First off its SUPER comfortable. The sport seats are supportive, very adjustable and of course for a car of this level has programmable settings. We got the car with the adaptive suspension, meaning we can change the handling ad stiffness of the car. In comfort, its like being in a super quiet, smooth and elegant car. You barely even hear the engine and dont feel it shifting gears at all. Put it in Dynamic, and it becomes a BEAST! The throttle response changes, the shift points change, the exhaust is heard and it goes! It also changes the suspension and steering. This makes it a canyon carver and with the torque vectoring sport differential it actually steers you around corners by accelerating the outside rear wheel to turn the car through the corner. It can also apply the brakes to the inside front wheel to also turn the car into corners. What you get is a car with huge amounts of grip and amazing handling. I have heard all the things about the super sensitive steering in dynamic mode. Its done for a reason...and I am not sure why no one figured this out. If you are driving fast in the mountains and you have to turn the steering wheel a few times in tight hairpins...then you need to shift...do you know which paddle is which at that point? NO. So like a F1 or LeMans race car (Audi has one LeMans more times in the last 10 years than any other manufacturer) the steering ratio is changed so you can go through hairpins without turning the steering wheel too much...keeping the paddles on the correct sides. Brilliant. My wife drives in mostly comfort...I drive mostly in Dynamic. She thinks its too fast in Dynamic because it will just GO when you step on it. I think...can it be too fast? The quality, fit and finish of this car is first rate. The stitching in the seats...the carbon fiber inserts, the quality of the leather are all first rate and belong in a 6 figure sports car. We came from a full size Range Rover and are very used to the luxury of that car. The Audi is just as luxurious, I say its MORE comfortable, has better electronics, and is an absolute blast to drive...and it Drop Dead Gorgeous. I find myself looking at it as I walk away from it....and every time I see it, I smile!
