I love how everyone gets so defensive over the precious A4 just because they own one. In a4lovers opinion the A4 and Audi = ****, and he is entitled to that opinion, I don't see why people are getting annoyed by his comments. It's an opinion, everyone is allowed one, however conflicting it may be with your own views. Also this topic is from 2003, is there really a need to drag it up again? Just to keep on topic, the build quality on Audi's is marginally better than equivalent BMW's, but anyone who thinks Audi's cars have better driving dynamics than BMW's, is quite clearly deluded. The E46 M3 is a masterpiece, the B6 S4? Forgettable.
