Proper tires?  are you saying snows, or aggressive low-profile tires?

A comparably equipped (sunroof, heated seats, ski sack) 318i, when I 
priced it out was about the same price as a 90 quattro, thus the 
325i would be considerably more expensive for that slight edge in 
acceleration to 60.  The one thing that BMW probably holds as an edge 
over the Audi is resale value.

I dont really notice the servotronic that much, I still get plenty of
'feel', however I think it is preference.  Ill have to try disconnecting
the boost computer and check it out.
