RE: A4 Reliability
Buy the A4 that you want, with the options you want, plus the one you CAN'T
get on the 328I (we all know what it is) and be assured the reliability is
fine. I have had my A4q since April. I have over 13k on it and have had
exactly one proble: the driver window sometimes does not auto up. That is
it. No build quality problems, no engine problems, none of the poor quality
of materials or fit problems that 328's have. And it STILL is not nearly as
common as the 318ti/318i/328i and is's that are all over the road. Pocket the
change and be happy, especially if you live in a snow zone.

--Or take the 6 grand and modify the Audi to your liking. There are many
ways you can change the car's power output and handling w/out voiding the
warranty. $6000 applied properly to an A4 could make it faster and crisper
than an M3, betcha. 365 days a year. And check out the last few years of
Audi ratings in J.D.Power and Consumer Reports...way up there. No contest,
buy the A4Q or wait for the S4.
