Uhhh.  A VW could handle just as well as your Audi...don't get on the high horse there man.
Audis handle just as well as a whole host of other cars, both more expensive, and less.  Toyota and 
Lexus?   I don't like Lexus much because they suffer from that Japanese sterility.  Has nothing to 
do with the supposed lack of prestige a Toyota nameplate gives.  That was a dumb answer.

Yes, BMW still do AWD.  In fact, they've expanded it to include certian 5-series models as well...
(formerly only available in the 3-series and X5/X3).

When faced with the need to replace my Peugeot 405 Mi16, I went the big V8 RWD route.  BMW 540i 6-
