Re: 159, Mercedes C, Audi A4, BMW 3
I got a 159 roughly two months ago, so far I had the windscreen noise which was fixed
with some silicone spray, and Blue & Me system not working at the start. I think these problems
are really minor and was fixed easily, so reliability wise I think it is acceptable.
My family have both A4 and A6, both are reliable no major problems can't think of any minor glitches, however the interior of the
A4 seems to wear out easily, also had a S Class and used to have an E class, both have far more
glitches and less reliable then the Audi, and E class' interior and exterior quality seems cheap.
Driving wise, I think the mercs are really passengers cars and a safe ride, so really not fun for
the driver seems like no matter how hard I press on my right foot it doesn't accelerate fast enough,
the A4 1.8T and A6 3.2 AWD are more of a driver cars (more power), but the seats are less comfortable comparing
to Mercs and Alfa, will be a hard ride for the passengers. I find the Alfa to be far better drive,
but since I only got the 2.2 JTS it lacks a bit of power, but it really drives well, turns well and stick to the road,
and quite comfortable for the passengers too (I assume) ... Can't comment on the BMW.
