wow that first one is SO OVER PRICED....get a quattro, I would pass on all the FWD. Also are you looking for a 1.8 or a 2.8?? If it were me I would go for the third one but I like my 2.8

i would prefer a 2.8 but im totally fine with a 1.8T, the only Audi ive driven was a 1.8T and i loved it.

well that 2.8 is a good deal....2.8 usally are more expensive and that one is a decent price with fewer miles, plus it is quattro witch is a must

Agreed,/and/if/this/is/your/first/car,/the/2.8/is/much/more/reliable.

That first one does look very very familliar.... anyways- I have a 2.8 and dont have any complaints, just cant do a lot to them engine wise, chipping wont make a noticable difference, and you cant throw a KO4 turbo in there for 800 bucks, you have to buy a supercharger for 4000 dollars, blah... but if you dont care about the engine mods, Id say get a 2.8........

since you are in cali, dunno if you really need quattro, but if you want to get some performance out of your car then i would say get it. as for the engine choice, i would look for a 2.8, my 1.8T is fun and all, but for some instances, like freeway cruising, and reliability, i wish that i would have gotten a 6 cyl. since you are looking at cars with higher miles i think a 2.8 would be a safer bet.

on another note, does anyone know what kind of grill the 1st car has?
