Before you decide exactly what you are buying, you may want to test drive 
a Q.  All I've got to say is the difference is night and day!  I test 
drove both myself, and found the Q to be to exciting to let go.  Yes, the 
Q's are more expensive, but well worth it.  If you don't care about the 
all wheel drive system then I urge you to find a GT to test.  These 
models have the five cylinder engine the base 4000 lacks.  If you think 
Peugoet's are extraordinary autos, then you'll feel quite the same behind 
the wheel of some German steel. NOW SCHNELL! Buy an AUDI!
