maybe I'm being simplistic but, to me it seems the "low end" A3 is only a sporty parts away from beinga rebadge of the much sought after VW R32 or golf R now, i dont think there's anything in either the a3 or the 1 series to be looked down upon.
TBH I'm kind of surprised BMW doesnt have something like this still in production to go up against the A3 (and maybe the wrx sti?). Any purists feel free to flame the idea. Seems like it would be a great project though.
well, A. Its not the right weather for it, B. I definitely trust them to deliver a product of great fit and quality and C. perhaps this most profoundly settles my anxiety, i received my bball just a few weeks ago so I'm still floating by on that.
