    That's wild that it's that common. I have a DSG w/ launch control in my car, and I have zero interest in using it. My car is enough fun as is, it's not worth the abuse IMO. I guess I'm just...

    I'm on board with this, but quoting the 0-60 time is pretty useless, since most/all require using launch control, which you aren't going to be engaging regularly (or ever?). That's why 5-60 is a much...

    I was about to say "great, I can only pay for them when I need them", then realized I live in a god forsaken place where the climate dictates I use my heated seats 8 months of the year.

    A4 and 328 are both decent choices. Way less car for the money than the infiniti though, IMO. Also maintenance. Typical Audi timing chain shit is present on the 2.0T IIRC.
