huh?!

A3 starts at 26k, get the Premium package with AWD and you're barely cracking 30.8k
X1 starts at (supposedly) 30k and all I do is step up to the 28i and X line, (not even the sport or M line) and I'm at 35k already before I've started.

Not to say the two are comparable but, I wouldn't put one in the same league as the other.

The A3 still boggles my mind though, to have a manual option but front wheel drive only, yet you can get an A4 quattro with a manual...

I sure hope you'd like the X1 better because if the current A3 is anything like the one I drove, it is definitely a cut rate Audi that's a huge step down from anything I've seen from BMW. I'd probably put the A3 more in line with what you get for your $$ in a MINI.
