we rip GM for not selling in volume yet 187 A8's in a month is acceptable. 'premium small cars will sell in america' yet 419 count em 419 A3's sold last month.

without an A4 audi would be hosed. they make impecabble cars but need to be sold as outrageous prices.

this business model here can't keep up. it wasn't but maybe 7-8 years ago the a6 sold lots better.
