Re: A4 vs Passat?

Funny thing happened... My cousin's Accord broke down. Donno if this is
due to Audi Gods, or VW Gods... But he's definitely serious about getting
a new car within few days.

But he's faced the sticker shock -- at leat on the A4q Avant. Dealer (the
damnable one) wants around $35,000, which was $10,000 more than what he
was planning. I looked at Edmunds and figured it was quite possible with
all the options thrown in.

Anyway, what's a realistic price (that is, a car that you can get off of a
dealer's lot) for an A4q Avant? For A4 FWD Avant? What's the lowest
possible (option configured) price?

Is the VW Passat GLX wagon out? I can only find listings for GLS wangons
(if any at all) from several on-line buyer's guides. And what's a
realistic low price? Average price? (Both with "real world" options.)

For both Audi and VW, are there must-have options? How about the darn
radio? Are the interior trim pieces interchangable between A4 and Passat?
