    Default What I want vs. what the reality could support

    Call me a pervert, but I want a V8, around 2.0 liters, AWD layout with
    rearward bias and the seats that have lateral support on one
    hand and in which you could move in the other. Lack of static
    electricity discharges is a plus. Let's see, 55 profile tires for
    summer on R15 or R16 and around 60 on R15 or R14 for winter.

    Since no such thing exist my heart whispers 325xi, but my wallet tells
    me A4 quattro with something motivating it in the 1.6 - 2.4 range.
    The former 4 banger being hard to find (also have doubts 1.6 could run
    A/C well)
    and the latter guzzling quite a lot of gas despite being 2 pots short
    of the desired
    pot count i might just have to suppress my disdain towards turbo.
    Maybe NVH of an audi four bangers is not that bad
    though i never heard any raves about their engines.

    Looks like A4 is the way to go, primary because (official) bmw
    services in this part of urop are ripoffs
    and vw services are plentiful. Sigh.

    Talk me out of this

    At that engine size an I6 would probably be better.

    A 2.0L V8? Is there such a thing?

    Why would you think a 2.0L 4-cylinder can drive an A/C, but a 1.6L can't?

    That's 250cc per cylinder. I've had lawn mowers with bigger cylinders than
    that. Seems to me that a 2L V8 would need to turn lots of RPMs.
