Audi, and the R8 is the coolest one.

technology and entertainment. Listed below are

Why the Technology and Entertainment
Features are Important to Me
These features are very important to me because I
love music. With the radio and CD player, I can
listen to random music or my specific music. The
subwoofer allows me to get the most out of my music.
Finally, I have a horrible sense of direction, hence,
the navigation system.

Why the Technology and Entertainment
Features are Important to Me

looking at my phone or watch. Finally, I need the
cigarette lighter because my grandma smokes.
