1995 Audi A4 2.6 V6 — The performance was alright, a 2.6 V6 sounds nice, but it only had 150 HP which is brisk, but not racing fast. I spent quite a bit to restore it. I fixed the radiator, pluggs, filters and some big parts. The car does look awesome from the outside...well...at least mine did with some beautiful 18 inch rims and sport suspension. Even though it was a 2.6 V6, the milage wasn't too bad. Although it only had 150 HP, it was worth it when downshifting in tunnels with your windows down.

Pros: Look good and sound good

Cons: Slow and fwd

Great For The Price — Great car, but the better engines came latter in the B5 body styles. I've always been fond of this body style, I think it is one of the better looking Audi designs. But the later years with the 1.8t engine and the S4 models are much better for performance and modifications. The old 12 valve 2.8 is a solid engine, but not a top performer.

Pros: Great style, comfort, and it's solid

Cons: Not the best preformance

Audi A4 You Got To Love It ! — 1.8 turbo runs 150bhp can turn out 210 at the flick of a switch. Full cream lather makes you feel posh but then again it's an audi ! doesn't cost a fortune to own really if looked after 44mpg on a long run. But kick it's arse and you'll be doing about 18mpg!!!!!!! Change oil regualy as bad oil can collect in the oil feed pipe to the turbo ( BANG IT HAPPEN TO ME ) to look gorgeous mine needs to be sat on 18"-19" RS6 alloys

Pros: good soild perfomance car

Cons: part cost a arm and a leg if it does go wrong

My Firs Love — I just want a six cylinder diesel, which this isn't. Audi is a great car, but rwd would be more fun to drive. This is my firs car, and I am relatively pleased with it. It is not a cheap car to run, but it's worth paying a bit more than boring avensis for example.

Pros: comfort

Cons: gasoline engine

A Review Of The Audi B5 (1996-2001) A4 2.8l V6 Quattro —

Performance-acceleration in this car is quick for only having 172 hp. But it will toss your head back a little. Braking is excellent and the handling is superb just stock from the factory. Build Quality- The car has needed general maintenance, such as timing belt, brakes and that sort of thing. The is some wind noise at speeds in excess of 75 mile per hour, but nothing else. Car is german and german=awesome. Appearance- Styling of this car is classic. It never looks old or outdated. Interior is classy with leather seats and wood accents. Exterior design exudes elegance and power. Cost of Ownership- I average about 25 MPG total with 29 or 30 on the highway. Maintenance cost is a little bit higher than say, a Honda, but you get what you pay for with this car. You will not be disappointed with any aspect of it. Fun Factor- This car is a blast! You have a lot of fun with just the stock performance and handling of the car. It is very trackable and fun to bomb through canyon roads with. If you put a performance exhaust kit on it, you will not be disappointed with the growl that comes from the engine. This is definitely one of the most fun cars I've ever driven. I would recommend this car to anyone looking to have a car that looks good, but can also drive like the European sports car it really is. If you have the means to purchase one, I suggest that you do!

Pros: Good gas mileage, fun to drive, looks great, will never be out of style

Cons: A slight higher cost of maintenance

Audi A4 2.8 Quattro — Strong engine this 174 hp V6. Pulling very well at any speed. Gear rations are spot on, and nothing to argue about the braking system. What is impressive, is the way the "Quattro" system can find traction anywhere. Perfect car for winter, and that's basically its use. Build quality is at modern Audis level and only the look might have dated a little bit. It's not a very cheap car to own, but I've seen worse. Definitely a great all rounder.

Pros: Traction, build quality, comfort

Cons: Expensive to run

Why Are There No Tdi Audis In The Usa? — I own a euro spec with the 1.9 TDI and 5 speed with 230,000km (143,000 miles) that was always serviced at the original dealer. I picked it up because I was looking for a diesel car since I live 30 minutes from work. When I fill up the 60L tank, I can drive 1050km until the low fuel light comes on, then I fill up about 55L of fuel. That's good for 5.2L/100km or 45MPG. And that's driving on the Autobahn doing 160km/h+ (100MPH+), so that's excellent! It has a leaky rear main seal, but not that bad. The clutch needs replacing soon, so I guess I'll have that replaced at the same time. Car is rock solid and feels like a Mercedes when closing the doors. Rides super smooth and controlled. Acceleration is just barely adequate due to the slow revving turbodiesel. Once the turbo is fully spun up, it moves, but before that is barely any power. On the highway at Autobahn speeds, it's stable as you'd expect a German car to be. Super easy to drive. HUGE trunk, even after the 12" sub I put in there.

Pros: FUEL ECONOMY! Rock solid workmanship.

Cons: 110hp is slow for such a big car!

Audi's Quality Problems — worst car i've ever owned, glad its gone. Everything broke on that peice of crap. It was in the garage every 2 weeks for a new rediculous problem. Replaced the control arms 2 or 3 times with in 40,000 miles. Engine was sluggish, especially at low RPMs. Steer clear of these cars

Pros: It looked good

Cons: Reliability

1996 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro — This has been an amazing vehicle. I purchased it new back in 1996 and it now has over 170,000 miles on it. Granted, I've kept the maintenance on it up to date. Its really paid for itself over this time. The body is all aluminum with thousands of weld spots, so there have never been any squeaks to speak of. The handling in rain is still amazing and outdoes much newer vehicles in poor to bad weather. My vehicle is a stick so it has plenty of power to get from here to there, but it isn't a lightning bolt. I recently had a variety of dings removed and now it looks just like new. The all wheel Quattro makes it a delight to drive almost anywhere! I wold definitely recommend purchasing an older A4 that's been taken care of, or one with low miles.

Pros: Outstanding quality, handling, and style.

Cons: Back seats are short in space.

Clean Title, Alls Good — Beautiful car, quick, its a sedan sleeper. can keep up with modified cars pretty well. Love the car, rugged, can outrun the cops without worry. Brilliant car. Heated leather seats get the girls...gorgeous interior, luxurious and comfortable.. great over all. handles like a dream, in the snow perfect for doing donuts, good rally offroading, good for road racing a friend. holds up good dispite all the abuse.

Pros: fast, comfortable, luxurious, quattro, handles great, on and off road.

Cons: a little too middle aged in appearance, good for surprising people though.
