I always looked at it as Audi being the Higher class than the VW, no matter 
now good VW are.  But some people can afford A4 and some can't.  So they get 
to buy a passat.  Audi is a better built car and the VW.  VW had many 
problems in the past with oil leaks from its VR6 engine and the fit and 
finish of a VW is not even compared to a Audi.  Why do you think VW has a 
100,000mile or 10 year bumper to bumper w?  Because some people are scared to 
buy VWs V6 engines.  If you wanted more POWER and be cheaper, why dont you go 
invest in a Camaro Z28.  Its Cheap, its REAL fast! Do you get what I'm 

Hope that explains it, but this is JMHO.
