I'm confused! Saying that it's not that hard with me :wacko:

Easy. I pull ahead with the torque and laugh that my car which is half the price of their BMW or audio, just took the lead! And I say I have only spent x on unexpected repairs over 50k miles, but they spent that on tyres in a year...

I laughed for the whole 2.5 months that Ford had my car in the garage, fobbed me off, then tried intimidating me with solicitor letters.  Don't get that premium level of service and build quality at any of the German marques.

As a matter of fact....

One of our cars (Mine in fact) is a lovely glacier white S3 saloon. I say it looks lovely, but thats it.

The car has several rattles and 2 loose bits of internal trim. Misaligned drivers door, replaced haldex pump. After 8 months of ownership 3 rattles and a stubborn trim piece are still present. Sure the dealership was helpful to start but they eventually soon get fed up and play hardball (As do Audi CS). My only option is to keep a check on when I can sensibly get shot of it.

(Most if not all of these issues are hardly restricted to my car alone)

I did look at the A4 but that's currently going through the early model stage with gearbox, engine, trim and build quality issues.

Sure they don't affect every car, but then neither does anything you read on this forum.

You pays your money and take your chances. It's just that the disappointment costs a little more if you go German
