Yes!! Thank you X3. BMW is still the ultimate
I have a 2.8X3 loaner (4cyl). No sport pack. What a great chassis. The ride vs. handling balance is great. Engine is strong and smooth.
I had a 13' A4 2.0 loaner last week for my other car (not an Audi BTW). I thought the A4 was nice. Good interior. Thoughtful technology, but man I kid you not the SUV (x3) is more fun to drive. If that isn't a death sentence for Audi I'm not sure what is.
A 3 series is the most dynamic BMW chassis. So if Audis 3 series is bested by BMWs entry level SUV.... You get my point. Nothing against Audi, just not...not a drivers car. And I find it hard to believe an S or even an RS can remove this engineering imprint/philosophy.
Long live the king
BTW, my wife wanted an A5 cab after our X6 is off lease. Now I'm keeping a close eye on the 4 series....
