In Reply to: According to my brother, 323i vs. A4 test on C&D.. posted by Alex on March 02, 1999 at 20:01:10:


: The 323i tested was a base car with the 15" alloys. The A4 was fully loaded with Quattro, sport (16" alloys and 205 tires vs. 15" 195 tires for 323i) , and a whole bunch of other options. The A4 1.8T with all the extra options over the 323i just won by a single point. A SINGLE FREAKIN POINT!

: If they would have at least put the sport package on the 323i, I am sure it would have easily won over the A4 1.8.
: So much for fair testing at a "reputable" magazine. Equip them all the same (or close to same at least) before you test them you idiots (at C&D)! I do not care if the 323i would have cost an additional $1800 with the sport package. You gotta test performance with performance. The base 323i is the right match for the fully loaded A4 1.8QMS. No fair ! They never get it right, do they?
