ok, here is the deal. went to the Audi dealer this weekend. I test drove an A3 and it was marvelous! I do love those hatchbacks... so the choice for me would either be: new '05 A3 2.0T, sport pack, bose audio, xenon lights.. was quoted about 27.5K @ 4.9% or slightly used '04 A4 1.8T Quattro (carmax has them for about the same price as a new A3) I'm torn here. The A4 has always been a favorite car of mine, but the A3 was sweet car. comments? crap!
