Great Vehicle — This is one of the best sedans I've even been in. It's fast and solid. The car handles and feels built like no detail was overlooked. It is a bit sluggish to accelerate at times; however, it's strong through the gears. This car has made me a HUGE Audi fan now.

Handling Machine — Good acceleration but has a little bit of lag on before acceleration. Need a sport transmission option like the BMW M3 08

Way Fun To Drive!!!!! — Everytime I get into this car it puts a smile on my face. It's so much fun to drive and always gets looks from other drivers. Love it or hate it the Imola Yellow stands out and the fit and finish on the car is outstanding!!! The MPG's arn't great but that goes with a heavy foot in almost any car!!

Pros

4.2L V8, 340hp, great handling, 40:60 AWD torque split, interior is top notch.

Cons

Heavy for a compact sedan, weight could be felt through corners, initial mild understeer.

Audi S4 25 Quattro — Amazing car. Great for long distance touring and a fun sprint up your favorite windy roads. Confidence inspiring Quattro AWD usually gave slight understeer, but is typical of Audi and most AWD systems. When quattro is paired up with the right tires this thing will go through snow better than most trucks and/or SUVs (trust me, I know. I live where it snows!)

Fuel Economy.

Audi S4. The Real Wolf. — V8 sounds so good never get tired of listening to it. In gear acceleration is fantastic and very addictive. There are no rattles or squeaks and everything works the same now as it did when it was new. Even though it's a big car with a big, heavy engine stashed up front, the handling is very good. Add four wheel drive and when it's wet the re's very little else that comes close. If I had to state a negative it would have to be the fuel economy which I struggle to keep above 20mpg on average. But then that's the governments blody fault, not my S4. Next stop...RS4, so must brush up on my bank-robbing skills.

Audis Are A Labor Of Love. Otherwise There Is No Way I Would Put Up With All The Aggravation! — Repair prices are ridiculous. Can't get special tools to do repairs. Gotta get most parts at the dealer $$$$$$$. And found out after buying the car that timing chain should be replaced which requires the engine to be pulled out. We are talking big $$$$$$$

Jack Of All Trades — Absolute Best car I've ever owned! Neck snapping acceleration. Excellent fit and finish. Wolf in Sheep's clothing. Everyone thinks it's an A4. For having a 4.2 liter V8, the mileage is respectable, I'm averaging about 20 MPG combined city and high way. On a scale of 1 to 10, this car is definitely an 11 in the Fun Factor category. I would not recommend this car to a friend, because then they would have the same car as I do!
