LTH here...the owner of the A4. One minor correction as my car is a 98.5, not a '97. I have to say that the 328i is a gorgeous car and is a car I'd like to own one day, however my wad of cash is only so big, if you know what I mean. For the time being, I'm completely satisfied with my A4 as it is a happy median between speed and handling.
As for the suggestion by your fellow BMW owner to set-up a road course...I may be somewhat confident of what my A4 can do, but I'm not downright dumb. The 3 would mutilate my A4 in a road course. However Mike, for the time being, you ad I both know that the tiny 1.8T had the kick to pull on you! :-)
Unfortunately MKL, I'm sure that once you are fully broken in, we'll be neck and neck...I'm sure we "meet" again!
