As promised here are some pictures of my new baby! I don't know what to say about her that can truely express how happy I am with it. Since many others have already given their own review of the car, well heres a little of mine; What I love: From the moment I saw the car the color is everything, if not more than what I expected! The Wheels look outstanding in person, which was suprising from the pictures others have posted, I never thought they were that special, man was I wrong!! The fit and finish are excellent and all the curves nicely wrap around you, a very driver orientated feel. The navigation system is definately a cool toy. I usually leave it on the map while I'm driving and I now look for new things like lakes or points of interest. It is very easy to read and I like how it also tells you the altitude. Then my favorite part of all is the performance: HOLY S#(%!! I have been obeying the break-in gods thus far and currently managed to rack up 200 miles in the couple of days I've had it. I haven't hit sport mode yet as reccomended from someone else on the board, or had it over 5000rpms, but already I can feel the power lurking, just waiting to get out. The other day I was exiting the highway and hit the off ramp at a pretty good speed, the car stayed flat and confident through the whole turn, excellent! The shifter is very nice, a big improvement over the sloppy one I had in the S4. As far as the exhaust note, well it definately unique. It's quiet at idle but pure race car on throttle. I'm interested to hear what it sounds like in the upper RPM range! All in all I love driving the car, and it seems like I am always making excuses to drive somewhere :) Complaints: There are really no complaints thus far, except for one minor bug: when I hit reverse, the passenger side mirror tilts too far down, (anyone know a fix for this or if its possible to be disconnected?) This car just begs to be driven hard, these break in miles are really a test of your patience, come on 1200!

Here is a picture of my new baby as well as a link to my album. Enjoy!

Guess you were too excited to read the manual before driving. But to make it short...just switch the mirror control switch to the other side..and it'll prevent it from tilting.

It tilts almost to the point of looking at the ground before the rear wheel, I don't mind having it look down a little, but it makes that mirror useless when backing up, unless your using it to judge it, since there is a way to turn it off, its not that big of a deal. I might have it looked at on the 1200 mile service.
Thanks,
