quote:[HR][/HR]At that cost for the Jetta GLi (24v VR6 w/ 6-spd manual), your better off buying a loaded 2002 Audi A4 1.8T w/ 5-spd.
Plus, the value of an Audi is higher than a VW. Plus DEPRECIATION is tremendously better.
If I had to do it again, I would go Audi. Remember, the A4 has Quattro, thus making a upgrade such as APR's Stage 3+ worthy. Putting 300+ hp in a FWD doesn't make sense, BUT on a Quattro it makes ALL the sense.[HR][/HR]
Hmm your description of the Bora is a bit out, but let me say this.
the A4 shifter ****s all over the Bora's
The stance and handling of the A4 is extraordinary
The luxury of the A4 is amazing. No creaks or rattles.
But having said that,
1. I have burnt every 1.8T Quattro that I have passed.
2. I come close to the 325Ci (though on paper, the Bora is supposed to be faster, but the stock shifter is so slow compared to their shifters).
Also, in Australia, and I would have thought it is comparably relative, the A4 1.8T Quattro on the road takes it to about AUD$70,000, that is a good AUD$12,000 more than the the V6 Bora 4motion.
With that, I could if I wanted to, added sway bars, stiffer suspensions, and wide wheels, chip and I know the only 'A'4 I cant burn will be the S-series.
