...give some credit to the Audi A4. If it was not for the A4, the E46 was not going to be as good as it is. A little competition is good for everybody. The A4 IS a great car. The E46 is just a different flavor that tastes better! At least to most of us Bimmerphiles. The A4 is a better buy though than the E46 for sure.
A fully loaded A4 2.8 QMS (with 20 more horses) is the same price as a fully loaded E46 323i sport. The A4 is a better buy. Just not the better car IMO. Meaning, I would still cough up the extra $$$ and get a BMW over an Audi. Audi has made tremendous stride with the A4, A6, and A8 and they should be commended for it. Remember those Audi Foxes, and 5000's?
Hooray for both BMW and Audi for bringing us fun small compact sedans into the states. I cannot say that about Ford and Chevy.
