      hey, all I know is that my dealer showed me a CPO S4 with grey alcantara inserts and I wasn't impressed with the durability. maybe the DSPO was just a dirty dude.

      the velvet is probably alcantara, which is what Audi uses for the same texture on the S4 seats. I would not get the grey alcantara or leather insets. The grey leather wears poorly and the grey...

      If people didn't want the 'look at me' factor, they'd buy a Jetta ;)

      I dorve the 320. It's kinda.. well, it's slow. and you can't tune to the same limit as the 328. BMW put cheaper cast pistons in it that won't take the boost. just be mindful.

      great write-up.

      I'll also add that with the GTI you trade away a quasi-useless rear seat and a completely useless trunk for a completely useful hatchback.

      Audi has taken the sedan format and...

      Once again, Audi has made the most fearsome competitor to one of their own models sit on the same showroom floor.

      Local MB dealer has 16 CLA's in stock, not including 5 CLA AMG's.
      I wouldn't call it out of stock, but it's probably on the low end of right-size, and I certainly do see tons of them on the road.

      Audi didn't sell a lot of 8p A3's, but 2/3 of the one they did sell were TDI sportbacks. Considering that Audi never marketed the old A3, never gave attractive lease offers on it vs. the A4, and...
