Most Fun Car I've Ever Owned — I researched buying my next car based on performance, exterior design, interior ergonomics, and overall quality. My choices were narrowed down to the Lexus IS-F, Mercedes C63 AMG, BMW M3 (new look) and Audi RS4. After driving all of them I ended up liking the Mercedes and Audi the best of the four. The BMW's transmission and shifter didn't feel as good as it should for the brand and price point, and the M-DCT wasn't out at the time I needed to buy a car. The IS-F was too polarizing, both inside and out. I didn't like the fake exhaust, either. The Audi was the most balanced of the four - and the all-wheel-drive quattro system was really apparent on wet pavement and mountain roads. The styling worked for me, the powertrain worked for me, and the interior was top-notch in qualities, if not a bit old-fashioned-looking, which I preferred anyway. Great machine. No problems in 6,000 miles of driving.

I Work For Audi And Can Safely Say This Is One Of The Best Cars Around — If the roar of the engine at start up isnt enough, along with the whistling dual fuel pumps (one per bank) then press the "S" button and open the butterfly on the exhaust and (if applicable) have the seats blow up around you.

A Car That Does Everything — Best car I've owned to date, and I've been through quite a few german counterparts. It does everything very, very well, and has very few drawbacks. A blast to drive, great engine and drive-train, great AWD, and handsome as can be.

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

Rs4 — This car is really powerful. Its kinda like a muscle car disguised as an autobahn racer, i mean the power that this naturally aspirated engine delivers is just unreal. I find myself cruising at 90mph like its nothing. Before getting into the handling because that is one of this cars most noticeable aspects, id like to say that this machine is just plain fun to drive, and that exhaust note i mean, it sounds like a gorilla making love to a dinosaur. The quattro AWD (all wheel drive) really demonstrates beautifully how easy this car is to drive when being pushed to its far limits. If i had to use one word to describe this car; it would have to be amazing.
