If the new TLX is as reliable, well built, confidence inspiring as the TL SH AWD was, they'll have a hit. From what I've read, milano leather sports seats, aluminum trim. torque vectoring AWD, what...

Schnikey.....:yikes:

Not sure where you're at, but I'm in SW OH. Doing a quick "Truccar.com" pricing exercise on the 435i coupe shows about $3K-$4K off MSRP. That's before the BMW drive event...

Driven both. We'll have to agree to disagree! The N20 is a torque monster little motor, too. But, it sounds more like a John Deere than a motor in a $40K+ car.

Don't know who you've seen or read from the Audi forums, but they're flat out wrong.

Now, if you want a BMW, then get a BMW.

But, let's be real here. The 4 cyl turbo in the A4 Quattro is...

How did you configure the A4 to hit $50K as a FWD car? For that money, you could have had an S4.

Anyway, both are great cars. I own a B8.5 S4 and an F92 335 iX. They 335 is going away, since I...

B8 A/S4 are the perfect size for me and 3 friends. I haven't tried to fit 5 or 6 in anything smaller than a Crown Vic taxi cab or a 4Runner in a long time.

Kind of a silly comparison, but fun...

Obviously, a lot of this is subjective. But, I find the interior and the MMI of the S4 superior to that of my E92 335ix iDrive. Materials seem better in the S4, and the seats are more comfortable. ...

Chrome 20s? Not since "Pimp My Ride" was on. Maybe on a 5 year old Scion.
