Where do I start?
Ergonomics. With the exception of the headlight switch (which you get used to) the 3-series and A4 are very similar.
Seats. they should be more sport oriented and do lack lumbar but they are comfy.
Thin sheetmetal? No way, this is a solid, no rattle car which will last as long as an E46.
Slow? The 1.8t is only slow with an auto. Manual 0-60 times are in the 8-sec. range. Don't go to Consumer Reports for performance figures, geez.
Styling. Every auto rag drools over the styling.
I like both cars, and like it or not, they compete. Good competition keeps pricing down. Life is good.
