I posted this in the Golf R thread, but want to see what A4 people think as well.
I put a deposit at my local dealership for a 2-door Golf R w/Sunroof & Nav (CSG).
I talked them down a few hundred bucks but it seems like most people won't get very low on the price of the R...looking at their invoice and holdbacks, that makes sense...they aren't making a ton on these anyway.
I priced out a 2012 A4 Premium Plus with Sport Package, MMI Nav, and the B&O Stereo System (I hear it's amazing). It looks like there's more budge in the MSRP on the A4.
I'm looking for something sporty, AWD, fairly quick, nice interior, but not super boy-racer.
The appeal of the Audi to me is the massive torque at such a low RPM. With an APR stg I tune, it has almost as much HP and a huge amount more torque than the Golf R. I also hear quattro is quite nice in the snow (I live in new england). I am coming from a WRX and need something nicer. Thoughts? thanks for your input.
