Hello Scotty and gang
I am looking at purchasing either a 2018 Volkswagen Golf R or a 2018 Audi A5 Coupe. I wish Toyota or Honda would offer a all wheel drive automatic hatchback but since they don't I feel that those two are my only realistic options. Other than about 10 grand price difference between the two, what can I expect for out of warranty maintenance and parts that break and go bad on either? Would like to keep what I get for 10-15 years.I like the Golf R and that you can get cool dynamic sweeping tailights for them via ESC tuning and it gives you the Audi look for a lot less but part of me says that the Golf R is just to "toyish" and the A5 is a little more mature and classy option. Also can you please elaborate on your opinion of Volkswagen dealers since I think you have said previously that you are not a fan of them? Currently drive a Toyota Avalon and love the new ones but they are not all wheel drive so its a deal breaker. Thank you, let me know if I can buy you a beer if Im in your neck of the woods sometime.
