Audi A6 v. BMW 535xi
By keiths7 on
2012 Audi A6 3.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 8A)
I decided that my next car would be a BMW 535xi or the Audi A6.
My wife drives a 2008 BMW 535xi T and we really love the car...it does drive like a dream.
However, the new 2012 BMW 535xi is a big disappointment.
Driving characteristics are null/void...nothing there...boring.
Is the BMW nice- yes, absolutely.
Is it refined, of course.
But ultimately the BMW does not compare to the new Audi A6.
I was shocked, floored and surprised.
It is that noticable of a difference.
We are thrilled with the purchase, ride, technology, and price ($2,000 off for current BMW owners).
Most gorgeous car we've ever owned...and my 6 & 8 year olds love the heated seats.
LED Headlights, rear seat ventilation controls/heated seats for kids, Nav system, LED interior lighting, easy to figure controls.
seats are very comfortable, everything is at my fingertips.
There is so much to learn....I love learning.
$30 a month for T-Mobile access for google maps??? Are you kidding me?
I really could care less if I get to see a mountain, building or trees in my nav system.
Mobile hotspot...sounds great but again, I can do that with my iPhone.
Complete waste of money and rip-off.
Nice to have, sure...but at $360 a year forget it.
If Audi offered this for $5 a month, a different story entirely.
