I can't find any info on what the actual event entails. Is it just one of those show up and drive the car around the block with a sales rep type of events? Those are pretty boring.

Looks like it. The one for Chicago is in the downtown area... Not a whole lot of "fun driving" to be done there.

^ Thanks, but too bad TX didn't make the cut. I know we're not a big e-car friendly state, but Austin is a pretty e-car friendly city, so I'm surprised they didn't get it.

lol I feel ya. I'm actually very interested in checking out what Audi has to offer but going to be out of town Frown

It actually looks like a real car, and if it's quicker and cheaper than the BMW i3 then it's a pretty big win IMO

How'd you get it?

If you want to try out the V series. I can use it if you are not going
If either of you want it, I've got an extra code for Miami. Unfortunately, it is waitlist only at this point.
