Ouch! Out With That Audi

LCT Magazine
Posted on May 28, 2008

TOO MUCH STRETCHING: Some vehicles are just better left alone, as chauffeured sedans only. Not every vehicle is meant to be stretched.

The Audi makes for a fine chauffeured vehicle, especially in Europe, with its comforts and performance.  Yet the visual of a stretched Audi looks too rigged and out of place. It's like watching a 45-year-old man with bottle-blond hair, a hoodie, a backward cap, and pair of Vans skateboarding down the street (an all too common sight in California).

Vehicles, like people, should act their age, or in auto terms, match their purpose and image. Leave the stretching to the Big Three -- M.R.
