The Audi — It takes corners pretty well, considering the back suspention is gone (gotta fix that). The trans is a pain to replace (done that twice). The engine is fun to take out (done that three or more times). I need cat. converters, but a $700+ a pop, I'm gonna wait a bit for those. Planning big things for this one. Many performance parts, and then a Carputer!!!!!

Pros: Almost everything

Cons: Price of replacement parts

10yr Old Audi A4 2.8 30v Quattro Saloon — Eats all normal cars even sporty turbo diesils, with ease. The only problem is a squeak in one seat, nothing else has gone wrong. Good looking to most people. 27.7 mpg is good for a permanent 4wd 200bhp car. understeer is the only thing that lets this heavy beast down, but it makes for a safe, fast and smooth journey.

Pros: smooth reliable and quick

Cons: heavy, understeery a little bit thirsy. (27.7mpg)

Audi A4 1.8 20v Se...excellent Car For The Money...nice Drive — i really like the a4 very solid,relaible car although it wasnt expensive.good acceleration,superb brakes for a standard car 1.8 20v se 130bhp. faster than the bmw 316 318s. nice looking car sits very well on the road,positive steering.good parts prices realiablity wise i owned it for 8mths (which is quite a while for me) and only spent £140 on parts just normal things like brake pads,1 tyre! it was a good example with service history family owned from new. i have drove some of the 1.6 8v versions which are quite ropey in comparrison and fuel is more costly. the fuel mpg on the 20v version was ok if you drove sensibly! overall i think one very good family/exec car wouldnt mind the newer one either! lol

Pros: smart car,good engine,comfortable,cheap to repair,faster than some of its rivals

Cons: bit juicey if you put your toe down,heater faults common,easy fixed most times!

Audi A4 2.7tq — Anyone who knows me, knows that cars are my passion. You wont find a more perfect blend of performance and handling for New England Weather. 335hp. All wheel drive. 6-speed. 0-60 in 5 seconds. Top speed over 160mph. All this capability, as well as being capable of getting 26mpg on the highway(if you can stay out of boost). I have built it like I want it...but the interior and body are still relatively the same.

Pros: Power, comfort, handling, looks

Cons: Back seat is too small

1998 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro — I bought my A4 in 2008 and it took about 30 seconds before I decided that this was my favorite car that i have owned so far. As far as perfomance goes it was a full second faster in the quarte mile than my 1990 Audi 90 quattro, and the all wheel drive gave it way better traction than the 1991 mitsubishi 3000gt I owned. 207 ft lbs of torque stock and loaded with luxury features, what more could i ask for from the next vehicle to journey down the performance upgrade road with me.

Pros: ALL WHEEL DRIVE!!!!

Cons: Not twin turboed YET

Clear — AWD is the bomb. this car is a dream to take in to a corner at twice the recommended speed limit. great power all over the rpm range, and the manual is the greatest feature besides the leather, bose sound system, heated seats , and sunroof, its just a sweet ride.

Pros: Audi?

Cons: speed limiter

The Best And Most Comftorable Car My Life! — the only thing i disliked was having to sell it. but i loved that it had a galvanized body so it couldn't rust it was great in performance because really it was more of a road car so it really stuck to the ground this is not like the Audi Q7 or the R8

Pros: great speed ,looks,stregth,handleing

Cons: maintenance

Benchmark Mid Luxury Sedan — Fantastic car. Fast, quiet, great looking, amazing winter car, decent mpg, total luxuty... The interior was incomparable at the time, beautiful leather, heated seats, quiet as a vault, great radio. And it came with heated seats, headlight washers, heated mirrirs. Awesome. nothing to complain about except it was pearl white. I liked it so much I got another one.

Pros: fast, hot look, great radio, ski bag

Cons: pearl white

Amazing Car — The performance was decent for a car of its size, being that is was a smaller sedan, with a rather large 2.8l V6. It braked very well, although there was quite a bit of brake dust that always ruined the rims appearance. Handled like a dream took corner going 50 like it was nothing. The build quality was solid, but the car was 10years old and had quite a few mechanical problems, We put about 12,000 in in it repairs. The looks of the car were amazing and the interior still lived up to the Audi name even after all those years. Gas mileage however was about 14.4mpg. But all in all the car was a beautiful driver and loved to preform. I would probably recommend it however i would make sure the are aware of the cost of repair

Pros: Fun, beautiful

Cons: REPAIR COST AND FUEL CONSUMPTION

Great Car! High Maintenance Though. —

This has by far been the most capable, most satisfying, and most technologically advanced vehicle I have ever owned. It is solid, well thought out and very well built. However, keeping it in top condition is not cheap. This is a maintenance intensive car, and while most parts are reasonable in price, the overall cost of frequent maintenance and service can be quite expensive. The 1.8 Turbo engine has been troublesome to Audi. The original timing belt change interval was reduced from 90,000 miles, to 60,000 miles by Audi after numerous belt failures resulted in destroyed engines. Unfortunately, mine was part of that number. Thankfully I had a good warranty and a VERY good dealership (Carousel Audi in Minneapolis). This car is a blast to drive. Very solid on the road. And with the AWD, the car has excellent grip in rain and snow (it's outstanding in snow), and it even resists pulling out of the lane when the wheels on only one side of the car hit water puddles. Overall I would recommend Audi and the A4. Just be aware of the cost of ownership and if you own a car with the 1.8 Turbo engine... have your timing belt changed regularly without fail!

Pros: Performance, handling, comfort, highly capable in snow.

Cons: Cost of upkeep and repair.  Timing belt failure rate early on.
