I looked at the Audi A3 (have an A4 also) but for the money VW gave you MUCH more and was more sporty. The GTI's engine is GREAT! And... it has CLOTH seats! Hurray! When will the USA market realize leather is NOT what everybody wants. I want other features in a car, but don't force me to take leather to get them! AND...hatchbacks are great!
The speed sensing wipers, reverse gear activated wiper, super engine response (non-chipped), ergonomics and comfort, and safety features abound!
Share Audi parts where possible. VW uses low grade plastics that break EASILY and squeak/creak! Add a parking light position to the lights. Add a bit more sound insulation to the wheel wells. Keep the power active to the 12V socket when the car is off. Lastly, why does the horn NOT work when the car is off?
