I Would Definitely Get Back Into An Audi. — Great ride and performance. Head turner. The AWD is excellent for all year round weather types. Too bad it has such a thirsty engine. Maintenance costs are high as well. It made me fall in love with Audi. Will be sticking around for a while.

gas mileage

Her Name Is Veronica — It has great speed and agility. 0-60 time around 5.2. And with 4 wheel drive you'll almost never burn out and it works well in the snow. It's dark blue with white leather interior. I love the Recaro seats. It only has 5500 miles on it. Only thing I don't like very much about it is the gas mileage, but it is a blast to drive.

Pros

Quick.  Agile.  Reliable.  Interior quality is the best in its class.  Honestly the best car I have owned to date.  

Cons

Not the most fuel efficient car.  Steering is a little heavier than a comparable BMW.  Small back seat.

Quick. Agile. Reliable. — This has been my favorite car. It's been pretty bulletproof during my ownership of it. It's fast but still relatively buttoned down. I would buy another Audi in a heartbeat. In fact, I will likely just buy another, slightly larger Audi as my next car.

Give It Back — I sold this car and wish I hadn't. I have missed it since the day it left. The power, the handling, the comfort, the sound. It was a remarkable car and I'd give anything to have it back! I believe the used market is insane on them, people want far too much. It is impossible to get a good deal on one, but worth every penny you have to spend.

Car handles great and is very fun to drive. Bose sound system is fantastic.

Good Looks, Power And Handling. — Great car to drive. Handles awesome, very comfortable. Suprisingly good on gas mileage for a 4.2l v8 engine (20-23mpg). AWD is great in winter and on wet rainy days. Cars interior is very clean after the 7 years of use, outside has no dents or scratches.

An Amazing Car, Amazing Service, Expensive Parts & Tires... — I like almost everything about the S4, but the upkeep can be expensive at times! I would recommend this car to anyone wanting a little extra power, great handling, superior service, but can't give up the extra row of seats!

S4 -v- 911 — Had the car several months now which superceded my Porsche 911 (04 shape) The novelty still hasnt worn off, love the ride quality and trim, both of which are much better than the 911... thrill factor is there but for sure the 911 would walk away with the trophy.

Would Have Paid $50k For It. — Looking for a car that puts you back in the seat and doesn't ask for much as far as maintenance than this is the car. Own this car for over three years and I have never been disappointed even in the rain when everyone is slowing down I kick it up a notch. Six gears standard transmission.

A Summer Getaway Sports Convertible — The B6 Audi S4 Cabriolet is without a doubt the greatest convertible car I have ever had the pleasure of driving...and owning. With 340 horses under the hood, this car is pretty quick and extremely fun to drive. It handles just as well as the sedan version of the B6 S4 as well, and the braking is exceptional. What sets this convertible from the rest is the level of build quality employed in it, which is one of Audi's motifs. The tops goes up and down in about 24 seconds; there is never any wind noise or rattling when the top is up. The solid interior is quiet, with the roar of the engine easily audible. Finally, this car is sexy on the inside and outside; the polished aluminum really makes the car stand out. In short, this car is a blast to own and drive.

Cons

Because you could buy an RS4

Dont Get The 2.7 Bi Turbo Yes You Can Soup It Up But It Still Aint A 4.2 V8 — Erm 0 - 60 in 5.9 secs and top end of 155 sums it up although haven't managed to get past 145 yet (only joking officer). Usual audi quality, quality build, quality interior, quality feel and drive. 18 MPG but with 4.2 V8 under the bonnet who cares. This car rocks, test drive one you wont go back. Buy one and tell the wife its ' a sporty family car'.
