    I Want Another. — The Audi Quattro system is second to none. I spent the entire winter in the Rocky Mountains and drove though all weather conditions. The interior styling is all quality with fine leather and wood grain. On long drives you never experience fatigue because the seats are so comfortable and supportive. Off the line acceleration is not too impressive but there is plenty of power. At highway speed there enough power to overtake most cars. I have always been a big fan of the German design both on asthetics and engineering. Not one thing is missing in this car. There are automatic windows all the way around not just the driver. Climate control is very effective and keeps everyone comfortable.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Once you go Audi you will not go back.

    Cons: Cost of ownership is high but it is worth it.

    Audi Doody — Not what I was used too - bit of an old man's car on the performance side, still went well enough but ...... Comfortable, good equipment, reliable etc - very German. Did the job but no zest. 1.8 SE - should have been the engine from my Cabriolet - much more fun ......

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's an Audi

    Cons: under powered

    Great Car. — My nephew says about cars: " Cheap. Fast. Reliable. Pick Two." I finally got to where I could afford to pick the second two. It's getting a little old and out of date nowadays, but I still love this car. A little heavier and deader under the gas pedal than the 1.8T version, but smoother power when you've got enough RPM to get to it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Comfort + performance

    Cons: gas mileage blows, performance doesn't match the less-expensive 4-cyl turbo.

    Audi A4 — Perfomance is great especielly the turbo "boost" Good german quality Cost is not that great, maintenance and service will cost you quite a lot. Fuel economy is good 7,8 liters/100km Next Audi will be a quattro too much wheelspin when accelerating...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Engine

    Cons: Maintenance costs

    Meh... — Handling and suspension are excellent and it's well built. Looks cool and gets decent gas mileage but after a few months it gets boring to drive and repairs are really, really expensive. Also, watch out for the 2.8L 30V, they have engine problems.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable

    Cons: Engine problems

    Buy It Only If You Have Money To Spend On It. — Interior is luxorious and sporty at the same time, the stock speakers are pretty good as they are bose. The acceleration is horrible for an AWD car but it handles really well especially on mountian roads. Wish I would have went for the 1.8T because it could be upgraded easier but I really want a different car already.

    Pros: Look like a player if it's beofre 2000

    Cons: Repairs are horrible and its hard to work on

    My Audi — This car was the best thing u can own when the weather gets bad outside. Never had problems in biggest winter storms! Drove it for 2 years and only replaced a oxygen sensor on it. when I sold it there was 140 k on it and it run like new.

    Pros: the way it drives

    Cons: I dont remember any problems in it

    Quattro Power! — Overall it was a very good car. I bought it with 140k on the clock and traded it in with 180k for a newer 3-Series. However there were tons of suspension issues ranging from control arms to tie rods to shocks and springs (front and rear for those last two). Power was decent (more than my new 325!) and the low-end torque was pretty good as well. Best part? quattro!! (see picture). That thing was never bothered by even 6 inches of snow on the roads where I live. Usually averaged around 22-23 mpg combined. Personally I think it is a great looking car for 1998 and it held up well to my continued abuse. I also loved the clutch... perfect take-up and feel for heel-toe downshifts.

    Pros: quattro AWD, decent acceleration, great Audi interior (as expected)

    Cons: I can't say reliability because it never left me stranded, but wear-and-tear items seemed to wear and tear more often than usual if you're on a budget

    Awesome Vehicle — Good acceleration and Speed. Comes with v6 2.8 Liter 190 horse power stock. Built to last. Crazy handling. Screams luxury. I highly recommend picking one up. Given a little amount of money there is a ton of possibilities of things to do to it. Definitely a bad ass car.

    Pros: Power, Handling, Comfort

    Cons: Price to fix it

    Quattro Vs Subaru — The audi a4 2.8 quattro was by far one of the most entertaining cars to drive i have owned, granted it wasn't as agressive as the cossie or as graceful as the m3, but the v6 would pull like a steam train in every gear and quite frankly the 4 wheel drive system is fantastic. Any man who goes on about the subaru being the dominent4 wheel drive saloon hasn't driven a good quatttro, i have driven numorous impretzas and owned 3, dont get me wrong astonishly quick cars loved every minute of drivin them, but dont think they quite match up to the audi which is just in a class of it own. Proved my point one day whilst racing an impretza sti (surposed 280 bhp apposed to 200 bhp of my Audi) obvously the sti had a little more grunt but through the corners the driver just wasnt as committed or sure of his vehicle and the audi would glide past in fact after the first roundbout i got so much of a lead it took him nearly two or three miles to come close to me again, then it was on a fast sweeping bend which he over commited on and nearly lost it. thats the beauty of the audi it inspires confidence, it does exactly what u want it to do, your sure of it at all times, never did i feel i was pushin it to hard and trust me i treid damn hard i could never upset it......so that coupled with the excellent build quality, comfortable and relaxing interor make the a4 one of my all time favorites, it could cruize along in poised comfort or rag the nuts of it like a rally car... i will never buy another impretza after owning the audi. Just wish i could afford an RS4 or 6. (obvously the above mentioned saga happened on a deserted runway on private property.........lol)

    Pros: Brillant build quality, high specs, 4 wheel drive system legendary, excellent engines

    Cons: bad wind noise cabin not as sound proofed as would have thought, restricted rear legroom.
