well...I wouldn't say ugly. I still love the looks of the A4. I just didn't like the turbo lag in the A4. But you can chip the car and boost HP.

I also prefer the interior of the TSX than the A4. I got lost in the center console of the A4 when I test drove it. And I'm not too fond of red guages...

I'm not bashing the A4...it's just that the TSX suited me more than the A4.

Are you shopping around between these two cars or just wondering?

I know if I were to get an A4...I'd go with the 3.0 :nod:

I drove a 2003 A4 1.8T with automatic. It was nice but it felt dog slow because of boost lag. I never found a 3.0 for sale at a reasonable price, and the 1.8T is one of the most heartless and souless engines ever produced.

The interior was very solid but a little Teutonic. The TSX's is not quite up to material quality but much more inviting.

I didn't even have that choice.

Cost of the A4 comparably equipped like the TSX base would have put me above $30,000 USD including tax.

It got cut pretty quickly after that.
