1997 ridges are detailed.. 2015 has that icey sole.. if one could restore the 1997's but swap with a 2015 sole..we could have the best of all foams put into one..

I despise clear soles on Foamposites...

Rather have them super yellow and gummy.

Penny Packs gets the better box than the Jordan packs.  Well I never go the DMP which is a sweet presentation but my GoF vs this Sharpie pack.  Sharpie Pack in presentation any day for the price they wanted.  

 

Also WTF is up with Nike shipping this in a 3 foot tall box with zero stuffing?  I mean my box isn't damaged but damn what a waste of space :{

I was just coming to say the Penny Pack box is pure awesomeness and Nike did a great job on that.  And yea it shipped in a HUGE box but mine was filled to the brim with air cushion so my pack was nice and safe.  Still havent looked at the shoes but I am already in love with the box lol 

 

did your air cushions have air in them? just got the lady liberty AF1s in this afternoon, and this what i got.

yes its flat. no it didnt pop. yes thats the only "air cushion" i got. just thought that was funny. :lol

They need to just start dropping 2 foams in the pack instead. 

 

This is how my box came from NDC :{. At least nothing was wrong with the shoes or the penny box

That's why the entry-level & used luxury market is consistently at the peak of sales. As I said, most slander comes from those with little to no experience in the matter. Off the top of my head, I can only think of one recall that hit A6s in recent years & that was the '12 3.0L TFSI models. Regardless, the majority of that recall covered VWs. Please don't confuse poor maintenance of a vehicle and/or isolated "lemon" issues with a brand's overall assessment. For such "horrible" vehicles, you'd think these companies would be out of business, no?

Audis (especially new Audis) are actually pretty reliable & consistently receive average to above average ratings. Usually the people that throw-out conjectures either were reared to have that stigma so they can minimize/degrade an asset they typically cannot afford or simply have bias in as they do not personally own and/or have experience with.
My comment was based on experience with a 2011 A6 that needed a transmission and then gas line within 6 months of the warranty expiration, in addition to the traditional bad rap they receive LOL.

Yep. Bad rap and then my bae bought a 'lemon' as you call it. Don't like them enough to consider getting another one or denying my experience when discussing the subject. You have now idea how the car was cared for so its pretty ignorant to include poor maintenance as a reason it had the problem it had. The dealer gave her a break on the gas line repair because he said it was a known problem. If you have good reviews and experience with Audis that's great but don't try to discredit my experience by trying to be condescending in your rebuttal, its not necessary and makes you appear to be an ***. ETA I only said they were horrible OUTSIDE of the warranty LOL

There's a difference between personal preference and/or experience versus generalizing a company as a whole. I was expecting your reply to have a bit more substance to your claim, but again; an isolated incident should not dictate a company in it's entirety. As for my post regarding maintenance, please refer to it again as I had prefaced the statement with a conjunction of several options/associations. Simply put; Facts are facts. Your "bae's" experience is certainly not a universal problem.

Not saying they are bad cars, but there are definitely ones out there with issues, be careful and stay away from those years.

At least this post has somewhat accurate information. You are correct in regard to particular models requiring a quart of oil in irregular periods. However, please don't associate changing oil deemed as excessive to issues such as "beaters"/"rust buckets" that consume volumes of oil due to age and/or actual leaks. This was an internal issue that was easily rectified with a new regulating valve & updated software. It would be quite a reach to deem this particular engine as troublesome considering it actually won several awards & accolades (i.e. 2009 International Engine of the Year in the 1.8L to 2.0L category/2010 Ward's 10 Best Engines/etc.) As for years, it was actually 2009 to 2011 A4s/A5s/Q5s. If you want numbers, the Audi A4 has gone from 58% of vehicles requiring at least a quart of oil between changes to 2% since that year. The A5, 52% to 2%. The Q5, 24% to 0%. Mind you, these percentages do not dictate owners having to add a quart of oil of 1,000 miles, but an assortment of mileage ranging from 0 to 10,000 miles via NHTSA.

After looking at that collection photo up top, I really miss those defined ridges. My OGs never made it past 2001 as the soles were ground down to nothing. Haha!

At least this post has somewhat accurate information. .
It's a fact that my experience with an Audi is similar to others who've stated that repairs are frequent outside of the warranty. An "isolated" incident will dictate your view of a company when you were advised as to what was gonna happen before hand. 5000 glasses.gif

My S4 as you can see plenty of miles but I keep up with my maintenance. You'll hear 100 negatives before you hear of 100 positives way of the world.

As for the pack the shooting stars PE was better than the sharpies IMO
post #22495 of 38598

Both are really nice shoes. The actual box it self is nice i just realized there are tigers on the box lmao. And the little card that explains the history behind the sharpies  is a nice touch as well.

think I might try too, that shape and shade of blue looks the best. I'm guessing they don't go as much as the last retro?
