Gas guzzler.

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.

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.

V8 Performance, Quattro AWD

Cons

Cost to maintain high, poor gas mileage

45

I Would Buy This Car Again. — 4.2 V8 is a little thirsty, car is fast as hell, V8 rumble is the best sound, a little expensive to maintain, best car I've owned, great handling in the rain, quattro is a Godsend, interior fit and finish is top rate, build quality is solid, car feels like a tank and is very safe, 117K+ trouble-free miles!

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.

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

Low end acceleration, balance

* — 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.

S4's Are Great — Its an S4 whats not to like! I can't complain about the gas mileage either. It got 26 miles per gallon on my last trip with it. That was with a couple high speed runs. I would recommend this car for any one looking for a year round performance car.

Great performance, rich interior and sold build.

Cons

Back seat is a little tight.

True Love — It is a very solid car with great performance. It was the first car in it's class to give the M3 a run for it's money. Now everyone is trying to join the game. You cannot beat the fit and finish of the interior. Everything else I have been in feels cheap now. Even thought it is almost 4 years old now I still get a smile every time I turn the key.

A Real Wolf In (beautiful White) Sheep's Clothing!! By vcliburn
