Aren't petrol BMW's more fun?No one suggesting that (unpractical?)
^^prefer maniac revs to turbo whoosh, the kick you get while shifting at close to red-line is nirvana(motorcycling terms)

Among the 3 and A4, the a4 is a clear winner. With the corporate edition in the 3, you hardly get any features, plus the ride on those RFT's are bone jarring.

Go in for the 2.0 TFSI, its a gem of an engine with excellent performance as well. Altough getting colour options and delivery dates may be a problem.

The Audi A4 2.0 TFSI - by far the best. Don't bother with the 1.8 or the 2.0 Diesel.

The 2.0 TFSI leaves the C class and 3 series gasping in terms of performance and/or features. I did extensive research before getting mine.

Yeah. I have gone through your thread. No pictures though. Is there any noticeable difference on the outside other than the 2.0tfsi badge? What was the on-road price you paid? Would be grateful if you'd help.

Apparently everyone is going crazy about the 2.0tfsi. Haven't driven a turbo petrol though. Is it that good? Driven a friend's 320d , it is unbelievably fast. There is so much torque , you just need a blip of the throttle to overtake.
So, both have roughly the same bhp figures and over 300 nm of torque.

No difference in exterior.

I don't think you can compare the refinement of a petrol with a diesel, especially since you are getting such amazing torque with the petrol.

Plus, in terms of looks and interiors, size, road presence, the A4 leaves the 3 far behind.

ME too would vote for the audi a4 . Did you check out the a4 2.0tdi. thats supposed to be pretty good and is super economical. Anyways with respect to your choice the a4 2.0 turbo petrol is awesome and one test drive of the vehicle will make you fall for it.
By the way my dad is also getting an A4 in march and i have convinced him to go for the 3.0tdi. Thats a beast also . works up to 43 lakhs on road in chennai with the optional bang and olufsen system and the 18 inchers.
I did take a testdrive of the 2.0 tfsi and was hugely impressed.
And also the torque figures between the 320d and the 2.0tfsi are just around 2 kgm withthe uper hand going to the 320d.Its just that the torque is more available and useable because of the small powerband and the availability of the torque at a very low rpm, the characteristic of an oil burner. On the other hand with your audi you have an engine thats so revvable .
Think you will have more fun with the Audi.
Cheers.
