quattro is better because for $2k (difference between a4q and legacy sport 
w/2.5) you get german vs. japan engineering. no contest there. i had a 
subaru (as a student), bought at 100k, drove to 200k without a single 
breakdown or no-start. great car, but it sure can't compare to my 4kcsq for 
_anything_ except ground clearance.

someday i'll have an s4/6, someday. . .
