: :However, it's no BMW. It doesn't have the heritage, pride, personality, aftermarket part following, or 50/50 weight distribution we are all used to but sometimes take for granted. If you were to buy one or heaven for bid trade in a BMW for an Audi, you would eventually grow tired of it. Besides, have any of you seen sketches of the upcoming 2002ti/E46 318ti??
: : Jon Maddux
: : 97 Z3 2.8
: perhaps in the US, Audi is the red headed step child of the Euro big three, but in Germany Audi stand toe to toe with BMW and Mercedes. Maybe we can blame 60 minutes and the unintended acceleration fiasco.
: History: Audi was racing 16 cylinder Auto Union racers on the Nurburgring when BMW was still known for a funny little thing called the Isetta.
: Racing: In addition to the above, for a number of years (not recently) Quattro Audis have been dominant in the Europen Touring Car Championships. Audi used to absolutely rule Group B Rallying until the cars were legislated out of existence.
: I love my Z3, but I would sell it in a minute if I could afford a 225 hp, quattro TT. Is it better? No, it's a completely different kind of car. BMW could learn a lot from their interior designers.
I agree ,Audi not inferior to BMW,only different
car,thanks God people has different taste.
Audi full of Heritage,more than BMW maybe not,;Interior?Jon you should enter an Audi once.
Racing;All the World Rally Championships alone
are more than enough.Parts in common with
VW ?Why not they are part of the same group;even in Ferrari they use some Fiat parts.
TT is different,you can like it(like me),you can love it or you cannot stand it.Is a kind of car that looks good on the road,like the Z3.
Z1 red/black 1989
Z3 1.9 1997 triple black
Z3 M euro model 1998 triple black and surprise.........AUDI QUATTRO Rally ,ex factory
