L337E46 will become famous soon enough L337E46 will become famous soon enough
Most of us in the U.S. have never driven a 320i...

However some of the Canadian/European guys may have...


We only have the 2.5 liter, 2.8 liter, 3.0 liter and ///M engines here in the U.S.

AZ325Ci is on a distinguished road
i've never driven the audi yet so i don't know much about them. i would choose the bimmer, of course, but i'm sure there is somebody on here that can give you the comparisons of both.

if not, then when i get home from work, i will do some researching for you. :wink

I had an Audi 2.8Q. Great car. The quattro is exellent. The 1.8T can be modded very easily. My friend has a 1.8T and that car is a beast. It also depends on what you like. I would get the Audi again although i do love my bmw.

is the 320 a 6cyl or 4? if i remember right its a 2.2L i-6. it may not be as fast as the 1.8t and it may not be as good in bad weather as the audi, but it is a very solid car and looks alot better imo. i would deffinately get the 320, even tho the audi probably looks better on paper.

i dunno, i call that car the 318i 2nd Edition lol, i am glad it is not in the US cause the bimr look would be much more commonplace....i'd get the audi mainly because i like turbos and the gas mileage is really good but you still get lots of power....check out club18t and a4forums before making a decision. Again i'd get the Audi but if you really like bimmers than get the BMW. Test drive both, i cannot stress this enough. Again remember people will give you advice some will say get the bmw and some will say get the audi but frankly although i would get the audi on paper if i test drive both the audi might annoy me with turbo lag or i might like the bimmer better while driving and get teh bmw....hope i make sense :lol:

where are you geographilcally ???

bmw handles much better, has better shifter and better brakes. in adverse weather, i'd take the audi anytime however.

european audis have very non-progressive brakes. a4 is also noticably bigger inside. it will understeer so , your call....
