RE: Buy A4 or wait for Synchro Release in the US?

We just had this discussion.  Just because they share the same pan and some 
other mechanicals they are not the same car.  Drive them side by side and I am 
sure you will see MAJOR differences in the way they handle and the quality of 
the cars.  Probably the biggest difference is going to be a more sporting 
character as well as a more refined overall package.  It just depends on what 
you are after.
1 hour is not that far but it depends on you.  You sadly will probably get 
better service from the VW dealer but not because it is closer.
Happy shopping.
And one last request.  Can you please tone down the blatant add at the end of 
your post.  Some of us do not need to be spammed and to sort through all the 
extra garbage.

I'm on the verge of buying a '98 A4 Quattro, but have been a little nervous
about the $ and even more about the fact that the closest dealer to me is 1
hour+ away. Now I hear about a new '98 Passat with the same engine and a
AWD system like the A4 is out.  Does anyone have specific information on
availability of this in the US? There is nothing on the VW site (US), but
plenty of great info at http://www.passat.de
What about thoughts on the comparison of these two vehicles. The Passat is
gonna be cheaper and I'll have a local dealer....

Any information would be appreciated either via direct email or through
this list.
