I met an A3 TDI owner at the car wash last week, young guy. He was pretty pleased with his car, liked that he only had to fill it once a month.

I would have looked at it in 2009 when I bought my 335d but they weren't yet available. I did test drive the Q7, liked it quite a bit, but suffered sticker shock and I already had two SUVs and really needed an executive sedan for my daily drive.

No regrets what so ever.

I am confused, then why did you buy the 335d?

The A3 TDI is a nice little car. I like the looks and I like the interior but just knowing it is really just a nice Sportwagon and looking at the price tag kills it for me. If it is in fact drastically different then Audi/VW IMHO has done a horrible job at making that obvious to potential buyers.

Agree....it is an overpriced 4 door TDI Golf. I do not see the value in many Audis as they are too close to their VW conterparts to justify the price premium.

Ummm, the A3 TDI wasn't yet available in late 2009. The Q7 was an SUV, I have two already, needed an excutive sedan to commute.

Was my post that poorly written?

It's that part in bold that confuses me when referencing the 335d
