Already OLD

Woooow — A great car, BUT, it's already an old car! Audi should really make sure to plan their life cycle of cars, especially when you invest 85.000 Euros... p.s. Dear review team. I appreciate that someone actually looks over these notes but if someone has a point, I would also appreciate if there is no censorship. Thanks! :-)

Pretty Good — Enjoyable to drive, it's better on a straight road where you can rev. Clarkson was right, better than my BMW M3

A Fantastic Salon From Audi — I have only had this for one day and I can already say it is a fantastic car. Wow! First off this is a race salon in disguise. You have 420 horsepower matted to a 6 speed manual transmission. An automatic is not an option. 19” rims make the car look aggressive and massive front brakes provide you with plenty of stopping power. Last but not least – a 60/40 power split between the rear and front wheels. Audi has finally delivered a rear-biased car – yeah! When starting the car it growls. The V8 sounds ready to run and blipping it a few times will remind you what lies beneath the hood. Hit the S button and the growl deepens. Pure bliss. Audi has finally solved the steering/suspension problem they have always had. The car feels planted and firm with good road feedback. I feel that you can throw this car into corners with great confidence. The engine is unreal. Smooth, high-revving with a linear power band. The clutch is rather light and takes some getting used to. I am used to the Porsche clutch, which is a bit heavier. The overall ride is very smooth yet taunt. You feel the bumps, but not in a jarring way so I don’t feel this will be a tiring car to drive. I will post some more reviews as I continue to drive the car.

Pros

Strong, charismatic, and flexible engine that will make you sit in the garage before and after driving just to listen to it burble...well matched to a 6 speed that feels like you're moving a rifle bolt into place...very mechanical and precise. Razor sharp driving balanced with a supple ride. Luxurious but still driver-oriented interior with all-day seats. World-class brakes. Overall...absolutely superior build quality and materials; take a look at high mileage RS4s for evidence.

Cons

Gas mileage reflects highly tuned performance of engine...it's worth the sacrifice. Back seat is more of an option when your need room in an emergency...not a car for taking a second couple to dinner...unless you like complaints from the rear. Lacks "right-now" turn-in of some rear-driven competitors, but that's balanced by all-weather flexibility. Otherwise...motorized perfection.

Motorized Perfection...or Close Enough For Mortals — Six years ownership and it still feels special. Fantastic build quality and materials that simply ages very well. It's not the best at everything it does, but as a package for living, driving, and enjoying automotive reality...it's overall balance, performance, and quality are unbeatable. It's the sort of car you can take on a cross-country run loaded up with four people and a full trunk and take detours throw curvy country lanes and have a great time. I took a spur of the moment trip this last January to the Detroit car show...three blizzards later I was reminded why quattro is such a good thing...dumb to make the drive on summer tires, but the all wheel drive kept me out of trouble. Gas mileage averages around 18 in mixed highway/city, the best highway mileage I've averaged has been around 24 mpg at around 70 mph.

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

Wolf In Sheep's Clothing. — Everything my 2004 Audi S4 was but better. It is lighter, faster and nimbler. Everything was improved from braking, handling, weight distribution, and power. I had an option to get the Lexus IS-F, but because the Audi is AWD, and a rare breed - I had to go with it.
