...but, take a look at the Passat. The have the same engine choices as the A4 (2.8 or 1.8T) and there's more backseat room than the A4/S4. For about $600 you can chip the 1.8T and boost it from 150hp to 190hp (my A4 has 218hp w/TAP Stage 2 chip and exhaust). Or, as JD pointed out, wait for the 1.8T in the Jetta, if the backseat room suits your needs.
