$10,000 in options? Compare to the A4. Base car comes with leather and roof. Style package (1100) adds xenons and leds and some other shiny bits. Wood trim is $350. And to add insult to injury the quattro car's msrp undercuts the rwd 328i by a few hundred bucks.

I don't want an Audi. I want an F30! Of course it's a better chassis and engine. But the way these options are laid out... geez...
You can't compare it to an A4 because an A4 doesn't have RWD, is heavier, doesn't have included maintenance (or much of a warranty), has a smaller dealer network and in the end it's just not well made. **
