Why would they be? He only says it's the best other option if you can't 
afford the best. Does he metion that an A4 quattro theoretically can be 
had for about $28K, if quattro is the only option on the car.

Which other *cars* are out there with AWD? The Diamond Star cars 
(Talon/Eclipse) are hardly in the same grouping of cars, BMW doesn't 
import the X models anymore (shame on them) and I can't think of others 
just off hand.
