Well there's an AUDI fan if ever I saw one.
My story for those who care to read it.
I too was "an Audi Man" I thought that 4 wheel drive was "necessary" for safety and poor weather.
I have owned : 2 A6 Avant's: 2 A8's 3.0TDI and Sports 4.2V8 TDI: 2 S8's one V10, and RS6 and finally the B7 RS4 pictured.
I was never satisfied with the way any of them steered or handled corners.
I decided to give BMW a try, first with the 640D M Sport, after some "changes in driving style" I was hooked and moved on to many new BMW's: X3 35D MS: X6 35D MS: E90 M3: 550i M Sport F10: F31 330D M Sport, and now the M5 LCI on order for September.
IMO BMW cars handle and drive better and with a winter set of wheels and tyres are brilliant. Just my 2p.
