German Sleeper —

2001 Audi S4 6MT Santorin Blue Pearl Effect w/ black Napa Leather.//Overall. This car was just understated beauty at its finest. Very quick, very sublime, very German. The classy exterior lines and the outstanding workmanship of the interior sold me immediately. //Performance. For inclement weather, you simply cannot go wrong with all wheel drive - and Audi has AWD performance nailed. The engine was strong enough, with little turbo lag and lots of torque down low. The only downside was there isn't really any reason to rev the engine beyond about 5500 RPM as the turbo runs out of steam by then. On long road-trips at highway speeds, this car really shines. Like most German cars, it gets more stable and responsive with triple-digit speeds. The brakes are quite good. The shifter was a bit notchy and clutch take-up tricky. I wouldn't want to drive this car in stop and go traffic.// Interior. This generation of Audis had some of the most beautiful interiors - ever. The Napa leather in this car is still my benchmark for automotive leather 14 years later...it was that soft, durable, free of blemishes and comfortable. The plastics, wood, metal and leather are all of the finest quality in these cars. The interior is tight though and the front seat bolsters can be a bit intrusive after an hour or so. //Summary. This was a great car brand-new, under warranty. I wouldn't recommend buying it used. My car was in the shop about six times in 15000 miles, so that didn't bode well for future reliability.

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

Pros: Turbo V-6, brakes, inclement weather handling, beautiful interior clean exterior lines.

Cons: Reliability, AWD under-steer, tight cockpit, short gearing.

German Engineering At Its Finest — I've had this car for 11 years and 150K+ miles, and I've enjoyed virtually every one. it's fun to drive, great traction and handling. I live about 15 miles outside of town, and going to and from work has always been a pleasure.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This car has been great.  Even after 11 years, it's still a blast to drive and has plenty of room for four.  The trunk is huge.

Cons: None, really.  Great reliability, great fun, great handling.  Great in ice/snow as well.

Great Car For The Enthusiast With Some Spare Funds For Modification Parts. Not A Good "only" Car. — I love the B5 chassis. However, I am an enthusiast who does not mind dumping money into one of these things. They are not incredibly reliable but with some mods this can be improved. The stock power is not really sufficient for a performance car, but there is a huge aftermarket segment devoted to performance modifications. The car's looks and features are great out of the box. Current prices are quite low, making it easy to snag one provided you have extra funding for repairs and mods.

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

Pros: Great sounding engine (helps to install an exhaust system), tons of low-end torque, stylish appearance, luxury features in interior, solid handling, AWD is great in winter.  Tons of aftermarket support.

Cons: Nose-heavy means understeer, not good for the track.  Parts are costly.  Stock turbos are not reliable.  Power out of the box a bit lacking.

Fantastic Car If You Do Your Own Work On It. It Can Get Quite Expensive Taking It To The Dealer. — Pretty sweet car. Pulls all the way to 155 effortlessly. Doesn't ride too stiff nor too loose, its just right. The Germans build very nice cars and always will. When it comes time to purchase a new car, I'll be sure to purchase one built in Germany. I find it a very fun car to drive, especially in Tip mode. I would definitely recommend this car to anyone looking to get into the sport luxury sector.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sport and Luxury?!?!  What more could you ask for!!

Cons: High maintenance costs.  Parts are not cheap.

My Car — this car is amazing! i had a 1997 BMW M3 with mods but it doesnt even come close to the power of this Audi. Biturbo, AWD 6 speed manual! you cant beat that in any car...quite possibly the best multi production sports sedan in that era!

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

Pros: everything

Cons: how low it is, and tires

Fast, Good Performance, Big Brakes, Good Gas Mileage, Fun Fun Fun Fun Fun — Owned since April 20th, 2007. Only replaced Brake pads/oil and 100k upkeep. My own work has been ECU upgrade, Forge 007 aluminum Diverter valves, UUC shortshifter, Zimmermann cross-drilled rotors, Bilstein Shocks, H&R sport springs, SSAC Catback, SSAC 3'' catless downpipes. All this work makes it a Stage 2+ S4. all I need now is a nice stg 3 build (in the process)
