: We own both a 99 323ia and a 99.5 A4 2.8 Quattro Avant. Although we live in east Texas, one reason we bought the A4 vs the upcoming E46 touring was the all wheel drive. We have family in the North and find it neccesary to travel during the holidays, with the potential for bad weather. Although at this point I prefer the 323 for daily driving, there is no substitute for the traction of a good all wheel drive system. It would also appear that in some ways the Audi offers better value in some areas, i.e. interior features-bells and whistles. We have had our 323 for 10 months and have yet to take it back for service...The quality is A1 for a car of it's price. Just my two cents :) AB
Have you had to take the Audi back? What do you think of the Audi's overall quality? I'm also trying to choose between the two. I live in south florida so snow is not an issue. I'd appreciate any input on what you think of the two cars.
