Apples to Rotorooters
Bart, always good when you drop by. I agree with your post 100%.
Here is what prompted me to get on this BMW v. Audi pony. I drive a
'89 200tqw, and my extended family probably drives 5 or 6 other Audis.
I love the car, but seriously, Audi needs a boot in the backside for
some of the stuff on these once $35,000+ cars.
The headlights are flat unsafe. My first vehicle ['71 IH 3/4 ton
p'up] had lights better than these past generation audis. Deserves
nothing more than a factory recall. Brakes, little better but not
much. Engine SEVERELY underpowered [it will beat a Yugo off line
though], on and on.
I want to see Audi succeed in this country. But, does Audi want to
succeed here? Frankly, I think the buying public deserves more out of
a $35,000+ car. Right now, BMW and several other foreign makers [not
counting US comp] are providing it. Don't need a racecar, just want
to see at night, stop sometime before the next city limit sign, and
have enough power to leave a red light and cut across a lane or two of
traffic when need be.
Anywho, I think I am done with this BMW thing.
