For the last 15 years I drove a BMW or MBZ, beacause what I like to call "QUALITY OF DRIVE."
Downside higher fuel costs & repairs.
Another BMW/MBZ is out of the question; as pricing isn't sensible and searched until I was surprised by the quality of the Audi A4.
My 'near-new' A4 is as surefooted as my BMW, but tons lighter like my MBZ.
Luxury is not lacking but, could be better.
What I love the most is both my BMW/MBZ's ran approx 16-21 mpg -- I'm now at 30 MPG's in my Audi A4 2.0T and she get's me 500 miles between fill-ups.
This is the best of both worlds!
Since I also purchased 'Near New' I purchased the extended warranty -- german vehicles can be fickle -- you just never know.
