love the look of the Audi's.. my old boss bought a r8.. disgustingly beautiful.. </p>
never heard about the reliability issues tbh.. </p>[/quote]
If you talk to a lot of Audi fanboys, I think you will begin to assess that they are not the most reliable. They put in a lot of effort into exterior and interior quality, but it's as if the overall car itself is over engineered, too complex. Need to change a headlight? You need to basically tear out everything!!!
I don't pretend to know everything about Audi, but do some searches on "Audi reliability", and I think you'll get the general idea of their quality...
My former co-worker was an absolute Audi fanboy. German cars in general, but Audi first. His A4 gave him so many problems, he completely disowned Audi. Their dealership services are horrible. Again, do a search on "Audi service, dealership" and you will see that the majority treat their customers pretty bad. The consensus is that it's the owners fault.
I don't want to bash Audi too much because I really would like to own one. But financially, I just cannot take that risk...
