RE: A4 Estate import ?

My words exactly...

Too bad too - a A4 1.8T Avant would make a fine replacement for the 200
come that time. Of course, by the time the 200 dies there will probably
be a 1.2 turbo A4 making 300+ hp from the factory running on tap water

The European pick-up programs are always US spec cars.
