Default 2004 Acura TL or Audi 2004 1.8T Quattro??

Hi all,

I am in the market for a new car. I would like opinions regarding the 2004
Acura TL (I know this is a Honda ng...but I couldnt find an Acura one but
since they are the same manufacturer I didnt see an issue) vs 2004 Audi 1.8T
Quatro model. Any concerns/gripes/frustrations etc.......I test
drove the Audi and it felt really "good". However the price is a little
steep close to US $30k. A friend of mine also has the new 2004 Acura
TL....and it looks really "sharp" and for a little extra (just like $2k
more) you get way more bang for your buck (bigger car, bigger engine, more
standard features etc). I currently own a Honda and so am a witness to
their reliability.

However, I have no experiece with German cars. So I would like opinions on
whether previous Acura owners would still go for the Acura TL or the AWD
sporty turbocharged A4. From the grape vine, I have heard that the Audi is
much much much more fun to drive with its turbocharged engine where as in
the Acura 270HP for the 2 front wheels is a tad bit much and hence not as
much "fun". This is just what I have heard, so dont know if there is any
truth to it since I havent owned either cars.

PS - Auto consumer reports also show that the Audi reliability is not up to
par with Acura......any truth to that?

Thanks in advance!

I advise you to visit the local library and check back issues of various
car magazines such as "Car and Driver". Read any reviews related to the
Acura TL and Audi. You should also test drive both vehicles. I agree that
a turbocharged car is more fun to drive than a car that is not
turbocharged. I know that those that race cars prefer cars that have AWD
or rear wheel drive.
