honed (verb) to perfect or make more intense or effective
American Heritage Dictionary
The decision's been made. It's the Audi S5, in Spring 2008. My dear, car-co-dependent husband and I went to see the new S5, and within seconds we knew this was it. This is the only car at the moment that will make us trade our spunky A3. In all honesty it didn't take much! If it wasn't for the fact that we want to wait until the DSG (automatic with "tiptronic") we would have placed our order a week ago.
V8, 4.2 liter quattro, 354 HP... ridiculous. Embarassing really. Gas guzzling, more powerful than what the USA roads allow for our driving enjoyment, but never-the-less... this is it. For the record, I am concerned about the environment, our relying on foreign oil, our carbon footprint, the need for more alternative fuel cars, all that. But, I have gone through the exercise in my head, and have justified the need for us to have this car, with a RED leather interior.
Done. Yes. Is it spring 2008 yet??
