Have you considered alternatives?

If you're seriously considering an A/T and the consensus here is the 328's A/T is unsatisfactory, have you considered alternatives? The two that spring to mind:

1) 335i with the superior ZF...

You might want to consider having your chrome trim wrapped in vinyl - the catch is you probably won't have the glossy look of the shadowline. Here's a thread from E90post that goes into it:

@I-Hele, perhaps I missed it in your original post, but did you say your '09 Audi A4 was an Avant? If it isn't, then getting into an Avant would appear a "no-brainer" and mitigate your current A4's...

thanks, yeah, too bad they discontinued the wagon - although the outback XT continued to be available with an MT up until this year, i think. Good call on the head gasket issue...fingers crossed!
