Very Good Cheap Daily Driver If You Can Afford The Repairs — Extremely fast this car has torque everywhere in the rev range and it never gets old, good brakes, good handling Very Good build quality. 9 years old and doesn't have a rattle I personally love the look. very conservative. I get 24mpg regularly. I have achieved 31MPG before though. Maintinance has been a killer though. Very expensive repairs. Very fun car to drive everyday

Fast, Fun, And Gorgeous Car! — The audi s4 is a extremely fun car to drive, it has amazing handling and acceleration. It does excellent in the snow or going fast around corners because of the quattro all wheel drive system. The car is also very sleek, classy looking, I always get compliments on mine! but I haven't had the best of luck with the reliability on it. It is a money hog, unless you know how to work on everything on audi's, you are going to be dumping alot of money on the vehicles maintenance.

Poor Man's Porsche With Great Winter Handling — wow, what a car. superb power, great handling, very nice interior and all at a fairly reasonable price. And the best part is the all wheel drive works quite well in snow/ice. You can seat 4 adults, pay half the price of a high end sports car and get all weather handling. What more could you ask for? Its a great car....

Cons

i had a fender bender recently

2001 Audi S4 Quattro — This car is mind blowing, the detail on the out side and in side is just astonishing. The way it handles around the turns is wonderful(quattros are amazing), the biturbo ads serious power to the engine and it clicks in as soon as you put your foot on the gas, i only had to change the bearings in this car and do the usual service and maintenance, the audi s4 is rock solid, build with a stiff suspension and a tough frame it can handle anything, and its very comfortable and fun to drive.

Audi S4q Rocks! — AWD - 420BHP - a sports car with 4 doors and a full size boot! From the factory they understeer and have lots of torque but are still a bit tame. The factory brakes stop well, but they warp easily. Several modifications later, this car is amazing. Understeer is fixed with coil-over suspension and a rear LSD. The high-bias centre differential is important also (to get more power to the rear). Big 6 piston Alcon racing brake calipers allow you to stop all 3750lbs with ease (over and over again).

Pros

This car has been great.  Even after 11 years, it's still a blast to drive and has plenty of room for four.  The trunk is huge.

Cons

None, really.  Great reliability, great fun, great handling.  Great in ice/snow as well.

German Engineering At Its Finest — I've had this car for 11 years and 150K+ miles, and I've enjoyed virtually every one. it's fun to drive, great traction and handling. I live about 15 miles outside of town, and going to and from work has always been a pleasure.

Pros

Great sounding engine (helps to install an exhaust system), tons of low-end torque, stylish appearance, luxury features in interior, solid handling, AWD is great in winter.  Tons of aftermarket support.

Cons

Nose-heavy means understeer, not good for the track.  Parts are costly.  Stock turbos are not reliable.  Power out of the box a bit lacking.

Great Car For The Enthusiast With Some Spare Funds For Modification Parts. Not A Good "only" Car. — I love the B5 chassis. However, I am an enthusiast who does not mind dumping money into one of these things. They are not incredibly reliable but with some mods this can be improved. The stock power is not really sufficient for a performance car, but there is a huge aftermarket segment devoted to performance modifications. The car's looks and features are great out of the box. Current prices are quite low, making it easy to snag one provided you have extra funding for repairs and mods.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great all-around AWD sports sedan. Quicker than many, more expensive sports cars.

Cons

Well, I suppose the back seat is a little small.

Great, Quick, All - Around Awd Sports Sedan — I love the looks (exterior & interior). This is perhaps the most well-balanced design ever from Audi. Its combination of power (twin turbo V6), AWD and handling make it a sports car that will comfortably carry four. A wonderful, year round classy transporter.

Boo Audi — In short, this vehicle isn't a bad car if you don't have to work on it and nothing fails but that is a huge if since they regularly have failures and are built with the most akward parts available to man.
