Could well be. The A4 I drove had the "lineartronic" or whatever their stupid "-tronic" name is for "CVT". The autobox in the 328 is okay, but I wouldn't buy one. My point was, VW is so pro-DSG, and Audi has DSGs all over their european line; that's the ONE way I'd compromise on not buying a manual, I'd consider a DSG, but they don't give us that option here except on FWD A3s.

Audi is sticking to the manual transmission throughout the A4 sedan lineup, but not the Avant because people don't buy them
Me neither, now.
