Just want to share my new ride I originally planned on buying a 2011 WRX awhile back but..

Never got around to doing it. The more i look at the car, the more "boy-racer" it looked. I'm already 24 now and i honestly don't know how i would feel still driving it in my late 20's. Just recently got a pay raise at my job last year and i could actually "manage" to afford something a little better.

I looked and looked and looked. This vehicle i found was perfect for me, great utility, drives excellent being a cross-over based on the A4.

I bought a brand new 2011 Audi Q5 3.2L Premium Plus with Navigation and S-Line package. I picked it up this passing Saturday and i absolutely adore it. Paid a little more then i wanted but the southeast region is short on this car. The first dealer i went to would only take $480 off MSRP and the second dealership wouldn't even budge on the price. This wasn't the color that i really wanted.. but it's something that i could live with.

Sorry.. I baited and switch on you guys, No R8 eye candy :lol:

Heres a few pictures of it.

Also some more shots from last night.

Didn't get the shot i wanted since i couldn't find a suitable location. But that doesn't mean i won't keep trying later!

These are results from last night. I lost a umbrella, 10lb sandbag wasn't enough to keep my lightstand planted on a windy night. Lucky the umbrella cushioned the fall or i'll lose out on one of my flash units.

2x bare flash off camera with no modifiers. I definitely need more practice with off camera flash.

They're decent but no where near good enough! Lots of shots in here puts me to shame.. Pointers? :P

Welcome to the 4-ring family. Have a B8 S4 right now and have had several others in the past.
