    3 days 23 hours 54 minutes

    Let's see if I can actually make it from Newport, RI to Everett, WA in that amount of time. Not going through Des Moines this time, cutting through St. Louis and KC, MO (caravanning with another shipmate). I don't think the weather will support the timeline looking at the Weather Channel forecast.

    St Elmo was spotted by one of Newport, Rhode Island's Finest (and a fellow TDIer) during an unplanned traffic stop at a yield sign. St Elmo is a little bruised, but hopefully USAA can fix him up in the next 24 days. Pics to follow.

    Okay, explain this to me like I\'m a 6 year old... A number of A5 owners have mentioned they have never paid MSRP or List (by list, I mean invoice) for a vehicle before in their lives. We even had a thread a while ago dedicated to how much folks paid for their 2005.5 A5. This topic has spiked...
