I bought this car when it had 125k miles on it and have put 30k on it in two years. The only thing that has needed replacement is the tires. I live in Idaho so I see more snow than most cars do and it handles amazing in any weather.
Engine and Quattro, amazing on Sunday drives and trips up to the ski hill.
Yes the cup holders but this car is made in Germany where nothing is supposed to compromise the driving experience. Unlike in America where if it can't fit a big gulp it's too small.
