I test drove an A4. It's smaller and also a bit noiser than the 3. Audi does a good job on the interior but not on A4's. Also, Volkswagen is notorious for frequent problems and thus poor customer satisfaction. I wonder if Audi is any better. Have you considered a 335i sedan w/ step? 335i seems to have near-M3 performance but also everyday practicality.
By the way, how is SMG? Read much about it, but it seems like there are split opinions on it. Is auto mode of SMG - automatic/comfortable enough?
