    Inverse relationship between VW stealth wealth and Audi real wealth. Now you know why VW isn't going to return to the days of premium middle-class vehicles.

      @runs_on_h8raide Correct Audi and Porsche make a lot of profit for VWnot. So much VW itself

    I miss my old A3, best car I've ever owned. I might of gotten a new one if they made a hatch with a manual, but alas.

      my wife still has her 2006 A3. I got a 2015 A3 loaner when I brought my S4 in for service. Trust me, you don't want a new A3. The old one is better in pretty much every conceivable way. unless you like powered flip-up screens. because that matters.

    I can see the post-winter bump, but the end of the year bump is a bit surprising. Do those December big ribbon "event" ads really work?

      In 2014, December was the best month of the year for BMW, best for Mercedes-Benz, best for Audi, best for Lexus - you get the picture - even though it was fourth-best for the overall industry. Christmas is for luxury cars.

    this chart has no value unless compared against other makes. (almost) all the luxury makes have been doing well as the economy seems to have hit a stride, but there hasn't been a lot of position changing among the top 5. like, any position changing. Audi is still a bit player with few converts from other brands. I realize I'm an outlier, but I'm still waiting for Audi to get its comeuppance for some of the trash it sells like the A3 and A6. they botched both of those cars, in my opinion. The new Q7 hasn't really hit the streets yet, but it's butt ugly, which can't help. the old Q7 used to sell well partly because it wasn't that ugly, but mostly because it's the cheapest big luxury SUV you can buy. I fear for the B9 A4 due out next year, which MUST be a hit.
