Really liked the rear lights, with a line of LEDs at top and bottom, one for the indicators, one for the brakes.

OK: stop groaning... I remembered the "Q", the 3.00ltrs and the colour! It's a start
Hmmm.. LED tail lights mean it's either the Q5 or the 2010 facelift Q7! I guess the real question is did look like a huge mammoth SUV or a less huge mammoth SUV?

It looked pretty mammoth to me!

Looking at the Audi.co.uk site, the sharper angles of the Q7 rearlights seemed more familiar.

Heck... Never thought I'd find myself liking an SUV!

(Not strictly true: I like the CRV, but that is because it is not very mammoth!

@Manish: That house looks suspiciously like mlcarrera's. Is it? And the R8 also belongs to a BHP-ian isn't it? Can we have some videos of the two beauties being ripped? Very nice germans there. @Audi A6: you're included as well.

Droool...Awesome pictures! The R8 looks lovely in that color combo.

A question to those who drove those beasts: Given a choice, would you pick up the Turbo or the R8?

I would not answer that Q. imho it is not gud to compare a tbhp baby to another, its better to compare cars from one stable or someone who is not on tbhp. ow you will not see too many of such pics in the future. cos eachone loves his own

one should be happy to a certain extent wid what they have , there is no end to the number game..ifthats the case all who have a budget for a supercar will just by the gtr or an atom and say i am faster

one should like their cars even at 0 kms per hour..

having said all of this, i had already made a choice
