    Despite its shortcomings in the functional / Practicability department, the Audi is much more fun to drive and handles better.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Best Car Audi made well not really the best car as its not an R8 but this car drives great and the speed is the die for. I love everything about this car there is not one bad thing I can say about it.

    Fun, Sporty Sedan — The only thing that I did not like about the car was the rubbery like spray that they use over the interior plastic components. It's hard to find an older Audi or VW that this covering has not started to come off because of normal wear and tear. You see it normally on the radio buttons and light switch etc. The other thing would have to be the starting acceleration, you don't see a power boost till the turbo kicks in at about 2 rpm or so. So trying to pull into traffic can be an issue sometimes. I have to say though once the turbo kicks in it defiantly gets you up in mph very quickly. I know that with the proper mods it would be 100% better, I just wish they would have done something more with this to start off with. Other than those things I have had fun with the car...we bought it as a family ca,r more for the gas milage of a smaller car, but still having something that was fun to drive. Even though it is on the smaller size it still fit my 11 year old and 2 year old in a car seat and two adults well. We had to go to a larger car since we are expecting our third, and three in the back won't fit in the Audi. It's comfortable to drive on longer trips, it is quiet inside as well, with a great sound system for being stock. I never had and problems with blind spots in the car, its always been clear for view out of all windows for traffic and your surroundings. The trunk space is surprisingly roomy for a smaller car too.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Hold its value well.  The 2004's had some corks, but once you work through those like we have with our Audi it is a very nice car and reliable.  I know that this car in particular can be modified for more power, and there are tons of aftermarket kits to do all sorts of things to make it into the car you want.  I heard of 300+ horse power out of this engine with the right mods.  So it defiantly is popular with the tuners out there.   It gets great gas milage too.

    Cons: The 80,000 service is very expensive to take care of.  Its a small European engine so its more difficult to work on, and you can't just take it to any old shop.  However, if you take the time and find a good smaller shop and take care of the maintenance and treat it like your baby it will last you forever, and not regret it.  All this being said when you buy a European car a person has to be aware of the fact that parts and labor will be more costly, and as long as you have this understanding you wont be in sticker shock when something does go wrong and you have to repair it.  All in all my personal opinion is this...the part cost and labor was not that much off from my older 2003 Lincoln Navigator, which is Ford luxury.  To be honest with the extensive computerized components of newer vehicles today you can't do much on them besides the oil and air filter, and it's just as costly to repair a new car as it is an Audi.  Like I said just don't take it to an Audi dealership, find an independent shop, because Audi will charge you a lot of money.

    A Great Reliable Family Car — Excellent handling and cargo space for long family trips. Reliable and easy to maintain if you know a good Audi certified mechanic. The sports package is a must have. Love the Bose sound system. Smooth driving experience. Solid feel on the road.

    Pros: Excellent handling.. Reliable and safe family car.

    Cons: regular service is costly at the dealer... Much better off to have it done at a certified Audi mechanic.  Know a great mechanic in Redwood City.

    Rich — The car is stock except for a cat back exhaust, lowered springs with bilstein struts, rs4 rear sway bar kit, milltek cat back exhaust, 19 inch bbs rims and led interior lighting. More mods in the future. Car rides firm and sticks to the road. Gets good gas mileage even when stomping down the 3.0 v6.

    Pros: Quattro handling

    Cons: None so far

    I Loved It. — It had decent acceleration in the first few gears but it was primarily top end with the 2.8 N/A engine. I liked it, it was a fun little psuedo rally toy in the right environment. It squeaked and roared like hell due to a big ol' tear in the muffler. It had a few issues with a piece of trim having come off the exterior and small rust spots. Relatively good on gas, but that depended on how well ya drove. Wicked fun to drive, find a lot filled with dirt and buy some spare tires. Audi repairs are expensive as hell..even for aftermarket parts.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great five speed.  Good car for semi-experienced stick drviers.

    Cons: Expensive repairs.  Redefines 'foreign car'

    85% Good It Needs More Hp And Back Seat Leg Room. — My Audi A4 1.8T quattro doesn't have amazing acceleration in regular Drive trans but when switched to either Tiptronics or the Sports trans the accel. increases a decent amount since the RPMs can be controlled. The overall quality is good just needs its regular tune-ups etc..Appearance outside I love IMO the interior is all tan leather and some wood/plastic trim. MPG is normal..about 20city and averages 75+mpg hgwy. It's a fun car to drive cause it drifts around curves very easy due to the quattro.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fun, stylish, sporty, good body style.

    Cons: The back seats do not have enough leg room. I think if the trunk was about 6 inches less so the seats can be pushed back I believe it would be fine.
