I honestly couldn't disagree with you more. Sure this is an Audi forum but it's also first and foremost a forum full of car fans. We all love cars in general and i'd imagine a very wide knowledge of all cars. So if an 'Audi fan' cannot listen to and accept opinions that maybe, just maybe other manufacturers may have a better product i think thats a shame. I genuinely love nearly everything about my A3. It suits all my needs and i wouldn't swap it for anything in the same class. I accept other cars are probably better at certain things but the A3 S-line does it for me. Audi make some world class cars (particularly S and RS models) but to me the base models throughout the whole Audi range are dull as ditch water. It's only the sports styled models which stand out for me and it's my right to say that. I paid my money, i bought an Audi....and i'll give my opinion. If some one asks my honest opinion on a car i'll give it, Audi forum or not. It's pretty much accepted fact that the BMW 335d coupe is a better all round car than the A5 3.0TDI. More focused, lively drive, better engine but with a worse interior and maybe....a worse image. No manufacturer is good at everything so it's nice to share opinions and swap ideas. Heated, passionate debate is great...bigotted, rude comments and insults aren't so as long as it's kept polite and educated and not just intended to piss off other forum goers i'm happy for people to say whatever they like about Audi. I don't want to listen to people saying everything about the brand is brilliant if it's simply not.
