Hyundai is Korean, and Audi is German... Although I'm sure anyone here knows that.

Yeh thanks for pointing that out....I will edit that...!

The R32 is a limited production run I thought. Plus, I would imagine the ride would be a bit too rough for someone jut looking for a nice daily driver. (R32 is also 2door I think, but I could be wrong)

A 4-door GTI would be great though. Definately a fun little car to drive.

The new VW Passat looks like a very nice car. I saw it at an auto show
and personally, I was impressed.

my 135i with paint and sports package was 38k + tax and regs. Tell her to get that. Then again, i'm very biased.

The 535I gets great gas mileage. My co-worker has one and she gets 25mpg real world gas mileage at 70% hwy. Personally, i think there are better looking choices.

The only alt. i would choose would prob be a G if it was my only car.

Those cars do seem like a great value, but I just don't think I could get over the FWD.

Is the 4-door requirement really that complicated for everyone?

If she's happy with the 330ci, why not just move to an e90 330i on CPO or a new e90 328i?

Yeah she needs four doors. Im still searching for a decent 535. I dont want her to get a 07 335 or 328 because the facelift is coming.
