AUDI vs BMW

Home  \  European Imports  \  AUDI vs BMW

But m series BMW do not have quattro system. And what could be better then AUDI quattro with touch from porsche on it.
The result: :twisted: RS6 :twisted: ---> fastest family car.

And what happens with M3 or M5 on a rainy day or in winter when snow has fallen.

bimmer all the way. an e36 m3 could out handle and flat out out perfrom an s4 quatro any day. and as for the snow... thats when i bring out the x5. i live in southern california so i dont have to worry about snow anyways.

to tell u the truth Audi simply because of their better styling. chrus bangle sucks! and theyre just comparible power-wise, one isnt more powerful than the next....ok maybe they r but still....its also dependent on where u live. if u live where theres zero snow and little rain the BMW will be ideal, but for where i live where theres a good amount of both, the Audi will be ideal.

I say go with the bmw. The quattro system is nice for getting more traction, but you lose a lot of power to the drive-train, not to mention the fact that AWD systems way a quite a bit more than 2WD ones.

what kind of audi?, i think the new audi rs 6 can beat the mercedes benz e55 AMG.

BEAMER...eventhough I drive a VW which is made by Audi, and I drive a VW. I don't really like the looks of Audi except for the TT. Beamer has luxury, and speed!

Audi RS6 is a nice car.. 0-60 in 4.6 seconds. Thats as fast as HKS Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

nah E55 just barely edges out the RS6.....

and the RS6 isnt gonna be in production for '04.... :(

You leave the M5 in the garage and pull out the X5...no sense in risking your life on wet roads to prove a useless point...unless there are numbers stuck to the side of your car. ;)

oops...didn't read farther down before posting. ::agrees::

As my name says Bimmer for life, although Audi makes some real great cars, and has been for a long time, the only one I would get is the TT drop top, way cool car :D

posted by  MrBMW

I would go with the M3 any day... course i just love BMW!

posted by  theunbelivaBULL

Personally i think i would much rather have any bmw over an audi any day. don't get me wrong but i think a bmw would waste an audi. :)

p.s. not including lamborgini,ferrary etc.

Personally I prefer the comfort of the seats. Please tell me where I can purchase a TT with a 3.9 liter engine. Thank you.

Oh yeah, I'll take an Audi over a BMW anyday just because I prefer the styling and driving experience. That and I don't have any gold chains to wear around my neck.

Here's a funny thought. Ya know what the techs at the BMW dealership I worked at in Germany said BMW stands for? Broke More than Works. Cool, huh?

Okey dokey, since you asked.

The manager of a prosperous whorehouse in Warsaw one night found to his dismay that he was short of girls for the evening's entertainment. Thinking quickly, he dashed out and bought several blow-up dolls, figuring that, given his average clientele, no one would know the difference.

Soon he ushered a customer into a room that housed one of the new lovelies, assuring him that he was in for an especially good time. When the customer came out of the room a little while later, the manager was waiting eagerly in the hallway.

He winked at him and asked, "Well? How'd you like her?"

"I don't know what happened," said the customer, shaking his head. "I bit her on the tit, she farted, and flew out the window."

Here's the wonderful thing about humor. To be funny it always has to offend someone. Unfortunately not enough people can laugh at themselves or stereotypes about them.

posted by  BAVARIANM5WORKS

Do they have punctuation where you live at? Just wondering.

posted by  vwhobo

The BMW M3 has always been one of my favorite cars...but i would probably go with and Audi S or RS, just because they are more sophisticated in style and they just look so much nicer, and they have Quattro, which is very useful!...however the new M5 does look quite tasty even though i dont really agree with the styling, a V10 with 500bhp!!!!!!!!!!!!that is wicked!

posted by  Flying_Dane

I don't know about more "sophisticated" style, however I wouldn't disagree that the Audi is a good looking car and their reputation has been climbing higher.

Having said that...I'm still partial to the BMW's...no surprise there. :thumbs:

I've got a '91 325IC sitting here that I just picked up yesterday. I'll sell it to ya when I'm done with it... cheap!

posted by  vwhobo

What's it in for? Condition? Clear title? Mileage? Pics?

posted by  BavarianWheels

1. Gross neglect by the former owner. The first owner had it for 10 years and took excellent care of it. It's been ridden hard, put away wet and generally abused for the last 2 years. The things I know for sure it needs are brakes all the way, intake gasket (lucky me) and probably an airflow sensor.

2. It looks great but... The former owner was expert with the cleaning equipment but mechanically it was afro-engineered.

3. No, the title is opaque. However it's not a salvage or anything.

4. At least 194k. The odometer is inop, my guess is closer to 250k.

5. Not yet and probably won't take any. Since I posted my admittedly smart ass last post, some bozo came by and offered me $8500 for it with a $1000 non-refundable deposit. That'll almost triple my money and I've only had it since Saturday.:2cents: Ain't capitalism and the American way of life great.

Maybe instead if the Bimmer I could interest you in one of these. It's sorta like what we talked about previously.

yeah you dont need to please other people....you need to make yourself clear so that we can understand what you are trying to say. people cannot understand this:



because it does not have punctuation. you need punctuation
to make it so people get what you are saying. am i getting through to you? :banghead:

posted by  SuperJew

no im sorry could you explain some more

posted by  BAVARIANM5WORKS

There is a little known word (apparently). This word is accuracy.

Accuracy comes with practice and practice comes from discipline. By your apparent indifference to both, it only makes you out as irresponsible, undisciplined, unreliable, and simply untrustworthy...among others.

Take some pride.

Anywaise isn't audi made by Volkswagen? just wondering i cant remember?

posted by  BAVARIANM5WORKS

Why is it always one or the other? Cars that are relatively equal in the grand scheme of things. Both companies have made some outstanding performance cars, and some excellent luxury cars, as well as a few stinkers. But so many people act like one is vastly better than the other (on both sides of the fence).

Absolutely ridiculous how people have to cut down on the competition to their favorite cars. As though liking one automatically means you don't have the brainpower to like the other (or ANY other...).

I'll take my 6 series BMW, a Sport Quattro, a 2002 Tii, an IMSA 5000TQ, a 740i Sport, and a 4000SQ, and have a great time. A new M3 and Z4, and a new RS4 would round the group out nicely.

Yes it is. VolksWagen Group is integred by VW, Audi, SEAT and Skoda.

Maybe you'r forgetting Volvo and Saab in your list. I think both are as good as Audi.

I was just wondering if anyone has had good or bad expirences buying cars off ebay like me?
I got the Audi A6 2000 before Xmas and I'm very satisfied with my new toy.
It's pretty much flawless inside and outside from what i can tell
Has anyone or does anyone know someone who bought a car on ebay also?

Hummm....BMW's are nice cars for (usually) the older age group who buy for the name even though they are expensive....Audi's are for the younger people who just want a little luxury and a lot of performance for a low price (on average)...

posted by  StiMan

Older? I happen to be a '30 something' BMW owner x3...and from what I see (apart from the 7 series owners) I'm on the old side of the owners.

Where did you get your statistics for the statement above?

Sorry! I meant on the most part the 5s and 7s (not M5) are owned by older folks. The 7s are usually retired folks and the 5s are usually parents...the 3 is usually used by people in your age group. From where I am I see mostly younger people in the Audis and the older people in the BMWs...

Audi's are a much better value than BMW's. Both companies make fantastic cars which offer superior performance, excellent styling, and status. I would not be embarrassed to pull into the office driving a car from either company. I am 26(new money) and work in the Philadelphia area. I recently decided to purchase an A4 over a 328i for a number of reasons.

I test drove 328's at multiple locations in the Philly area and encountered the same problems at each location. First of all, BMW sales people are pretentious pricks who think they are doing you a favor by letting you test drive a BMW. Second, none of the dealerships I went to had 6 speed 328's to test drive. I was shocked when the salesperson told me this, and demanded an explanation. "Well, we find the majority of people buying BMW's these days PREFER automatic transmissions". We were surprised by this considering BMW's reputation of making cars for "drivers". It appears that BMW has fallen out of favor with the drivers, and is now popular among high school girls and soccer moms.

Since we were at the dealership, we decided to test drive the automatic. The interior was very cheap looking. My confusion grew because I also thought BMW's were luxury cars. As i pull away from the dealership in my automatic 328 with the underwhelming interior, I notice a complete lack of acceleration. The ride gets worse on the back roads because the 328 feels incredibly heavy and unresponsive around curves. After being totally disappointed by the car, the prick salesmen offers me 43k for a 6 speed 328i with leather seats. We rejected his offer and made our way for the door. He asked us what else we were looking at and assured us that he couldn't match an offer made by Audi. He was right.

The A4 felt much more nimble than the 328i, and they actually had 6 speeds on the lot to test drive. Apparently 80% of Audi owners don't drive automatic....The general manager offered 30k even for an A4 with quattro, leather, cold weather, sport suspension and NAV. We bought the car without negotiating. The 328i may test better on the track, but it comes at a 14k premium in some parts of the country. Did i mention you can't drive the BMW in heavy rain or in the snow?

No comparison between these two companies. BMW has become a complete status symbol car and Audi is recognized as a great value, performance cars for intelligent men. The women can keep the beamer.

Guess I'll be a woman...I simply prefer the BMW...although I have not gone in to see the new ones. 328's are the "touring" model of the 3 series...if you want better performance, you should at least look at the 335's, a difference of 70hp.

As far as service goes, I will say, as I've mentioned a few times here, BMW service is not as good as one might expect from a luxury/sports car factory. I've never been to an Audi dealer for service...never owned an Audi, but from what I have owned, Lexus is the leader by FAR on service!

lol...just a few years old this thread is...lol.

I don't like BMW's 3series...either performance or design, so, Audi.

5series are different, but still prefer Audi A6. Same for 7series and A8.

Now for performance, Mseries and TT'n'RS6...i go for BMW instead...it's the rear traction, gives me goosebumps :mrgreen:

A perfect opportunity for me to start here in the community, in a decades old thread. http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w245/lsixer/emoticons/hehe.gif

So Johnny, you dislike 3 series? If I may ask, do you dislike the entire evolution of them? Including the e30, e36, e46, etc .... ?

As for the performance, since you dislike that as well, as you currently driving a ferrari then?

I am happy with both my audi and bimmer.

I'm more for Audi, I don't like the Styling of new BMW's, the old ones look really great tho. The styling of new Audi's is just magnificent, no weak spots IMO.
