I think VW won some engine of the year award with that engine. good stuff really but just put off by how to maintain it after the warranty.
Maybe some VW bros here can advise.

Saw the review on ST yesterday. Seems that its a very attractive proposition. Any comments?
Would u pay this price for an A-Class or this piece?
if i were to consider the A-class, maybe I shd look at the B-class. but then it will be the B200 turbo. Hey, maybe the C-class in this case.. but then, people will start telling me about IS250 and BMW 3 series. that will be 320 vs 323 vs 325.
or maybe some will said Legacy, Mark X, Accord, Camry, vectra, C5..
oh my.. there's no end. what a comparison.
but for a TSi, it's worth considering. hardly any in the right class to do a comparision. It's a TSi, for god sake.

for the brand. if you are having power in mind+space
go for Passat 1.8T, or Legacy GT.
no doubt the TSi have lesser power but the SC and TC doesn't really bring the Passat in mind. rather different league. and price as well.
If it's Passat 1.8T, maybe we shd look at Audi 1.8T as well

The Passat is a better choice overall due to other factors like interior " upclassness" (excuse the poor english), image, interior space, etc....
What i mean to say is, if you wanna get a car in this budget range, you can consider more executive cars like Legacy, passat etc..
IMHO, you probably do not need such a powerful car in Singapore in such start stop traffic. A comfortable one is more my ticket.
No offense to Jetta/ golf owners. I drive a VW too. Just my opinion.

I managed to get mine at 108K, after discounts. The current price should be 114K, and that's before discounts....
The new A4 1.8T should not be priced so high, in fact, based on the SE's estimates, it should be priced competitively against the entry 3-series and C-class (so expect between 140-145K).
Anyway, the new A4 is actually bigger and possibly better equiped than the standard passat 1.8T, so the comparison is unfair (especially based on the OMV). Audi A4 1.8T is comparable to the Passat 2.0T in pricing and features....
2008-2016 Volkswagen Passat
2007-2008 Honda Civic 2.0M
2001-2007 Nissan Presea 1.6M
