I Was Not Let Down — the car is amazing. From the time I bought it to even now, I look forward to driving it places and washing it. Hands down best car I've owned out of the several cars I've previously had. Never a dull ride.

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

I Wish I Could Keep It. — I like how much fun it is to drive. Tons of power, and planted to the ground. Its definitely a drivers car. Looks great too, with the tinted windows and the wheels from the factory. Maybe I'll buy another one in the future.

Pros

Sexy blacked out interior, Recaro seats in the front and back, massive power band, and tight in the turns.

Cons

Small backseat, and like all sedans the backseat is a rougher ride than the front.

Sexy, Sleek, And Subtly Powerful! — Gas is getting expensive and the MPG's aren't the best, but then again I didn't buy a 4-banger Civic. I bought an AWD, 4.2L V8 with about 344 at the crank and 236 to the wheels. The only think I didn't like about this vehicle was the cost of needed repairs. Oil changes and other fluids I can do myself, but hopefully you can find a good trustworthy mechanical for the major work.

2004 Audi S4 Cabrio — Its a good weekend getaway car, mileage on the freeway is not too bad but city driving is not so good. Great looking car and fun to drive just lots of little maintenance items to take care. I am pretty much a do it yourself guy and this is not the easiest car to work on, not much room in the engine bay.

S4's Are Nice. — Being a V8, it was not a gas miser by any stretch. It provided plenty of smiles per gallon however. :) Loved the V8 exhaust note. No performance modifications for the car. Tracked it several times. Decent performer as a bone stock vehicle.

Audi S4 — It is simply the best car I have ever driven. It accelerates so quickly, and is faster than most cars. It does cost a lot to own, but it is completely worth it for the car you get. It is extremely fun to drive and one of the best overall sports sedans that money can buy.

Be Prepare For The Gas! — one of a kind sport car, All wheel drive is awesome in winter, with the top down is awesome for summer. The only concern is gas and insurance, but it's all expected anyway. I prefer this better than a M3 cab until I see a AWD M3, which will never happen in my opinion.

Audi B6 S4 V8: Gotta Pay To Play — The car is a dream to drive. It is solid and feels like a bank vault on wheels. It displays some mild understeer if pushed hard, however I am hoping a new rear sway bar will rectify that. The engine is fantastic and revs like a 4cyl. The 4.2L V8 is not known for mileage, but if you want big MPG numbers, buy a Prius (and stay the hell away from me) The car looks like a $50k+ car, because it is. I opted for the Alcantera/Leather interior in black and I love it. I will say it's a maintenace whore. It is not cheap to repair or replace parts. If you can just barely afford the car, don't buy it. The maintenance will eat you alive! Of course, you could just not do the maintenance. That would be stupid, though, because a new engine with instal and removal from the dealership runs +/- $14K! Seriously. I guess the thing to say is this; If you want a german sports sedan and think that Benz's are pompous and BMW's are common then buy the $4.

S4..the Most Amazing Car Ever Made!!!! — I recently purchased my S4, it is the sexiest, sleekest, and such a sleeper! I love my car! Excellent handling, the Quattro is AMAZING as well, the power never gets old either, everytime I turnon the car is still exciting! Gas is typical for a v8, so worthit though! And especially love the fact that their are not many S4's on the road! Love the car!!!

* — So much power in reserve from that V8. And in spite of how nose heavy it was, with Michelin PS2's it was very tossable in the twisties. Solid brakes. Impeccable fit and finish, as with all Audis. Horrendous gas mileage, but that's the price we pay... Loved that car.
