Audi S4 (b6) (v8) — Brilliant family motor with amazing luggage swallowing capability. This was a great Q-car as it pretty much looked like any other A4 1.8 T Quatttro sport but when it came to the traffic lights most other cars were found wanting. Unfortunately it seem i had a "Friday" car and the build quality was not upto the usual Audi standards in 18 months ownership it spent 94 days at the stealers and after finding I had lost £21,000 in depreciation after 18 months I swiftly moved to the M3 Cab

Pros: Q-car appeal , Very quick, amazing V8 rumble and roar, cornering ability (4wd) Family lugging capability

Cons: Very heavy fuel/oil consumption, "friday" Build quality, Audi Customer service

Sick — This was the first high performance car i ever drove, and it left a huge impression on me. This car changed the way i look at cars forever. Its V8 puts out 340HP and believe me when i say you feel all of it! The handling is outrageous... Come into a corner a little too hot, the nose starts to wash out, crashing seems imminent... just hit the gas and all of a sudden you come out ok! On top of it all, you can change

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Great Mix Of Luxury And Fun, But Will Ring You Up At The Pump —

I've had my S4 Cab for nearly two years and it still puts a smile on my face every time I look at it, let alone drive it. Living in Chicago, this car has proven to be a joy to drive in all seasons, not just in the summer as is the case with most convertibles. The Quattro system helps with winter driving (although I still recommend getting a set of winter tires in addition to the OEM performance tires for true winter driving confidence), and the soft top does a commendable job of keeping the cold air out of the cabin. The engine is quite responsive at all RPMs, and when really stomping on it, this car will just take-off in 3rd, 4th, and 5th gears (6-speed manual). And, the braking is as solid as I've ever experienced. The car will stay on a straight braking line even in emergency braking situations. Overall, this car is just a joy to drive, an excellent performer, and is quite confidence inspiring. Its tendency when pushed hard in corners is to understeer, which can be easily relieved by simply backing-off the gas, but you'll want to enter aggressive turns early to avoid completely losing the line. The soft top folds-up quickly and neatly. I've had no issues with mine to date. With top down and wind screen / side windows up, the riding experience in the front two seats is quite comfortable even at highway speeds. The road noise is high, as is probably expected with the top down, but largely due to the size of the tires holding this car to the road. The interior styling, as with most Audi's, in my mind is second to none. Very clean and stylish. The added trim in the S4 is a nice touch with the white piping on the black leather seats, as well as the stainless steel surroundings on the air vents and gauges. All around tight, with the exception of the plastic cover holding the review mirror to the windshield, which on my car actually popped-off and will no longer stay properly attached. The seats and general seating position are quite comfortable and won't wear you out on longer trips. At 6'2" and with long legs, I still find there to be plenty of room in this car, and don't even have the driver's seat extended backwards to its maximum point. The rear seats are really best for kids or a second set of golf clubs... good luck putting any adults back there for any length of time. As for the downsides resulting in a rating below "Love It": 1) The car really swallows a lot of gas. I get about 15 - 18 MPG around the city, and about 20 MPG on the highway. With a smallish tank, this means filling-up on longer trips every 250 - 300 miles. 2) Trunk size is limited, even with the top up. A function of the size of the car and the convertible, though. 3) This car is HEAVY! To be expected given the size of the engine, Quattro system, and converitible, but it is definitely felt in its performance. Although the S4 will stay close to an M3, in the end it can't really keep-up and is noticeably less agile. Tends to be a bit more towards the luxury end of the spectrum than the M3. 4) Poor visibility with the top up. A covertible, so I don't expect anything other than this, but is worth noting. For me and my driving style, this car is a great fit due to its versatility. All-season and high-utility performance convertible that is a lot of fun to drive with both top up and down while not knocking the fillings out of your teeth on the rough Chicago streets. It will leave most cars in the dust, yet is not an awful pain to be stuck in when facing Chicago rush hour traffic. For those seeking a truely high performance two seater, you should probably look elsewhre. This car is about confidence, style, and class with a good deal of power to back it up.

I Would Buy This Car Again. — 4.2 V8 is a little thirsty, car is fast as hell, V8 rumble is the best sound, a little expensive to maintain, best car I've owned, great handling in the rain, quattro is a Godsend, interior fit and finish is top rate, build quality is solid, car feels like a tank and is very safe, 117K+ trouble-free miles!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: V8 Performance, Quattro AWD

Cons: Cost to maintain high, poor gas mileage

Great sounding engine, one of the best Ive ever heard (had a 3 header back exhaust). The 0-40 mph pull was always a nice party trick due to the instant response of the AWD system. Sold it for a C5 Z06 due to reliability issues - the main ones being with the timing chain and oil usage.

Handling Ranked 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Hardtop Coupe RWD better.
"The Corvette is almost 500 lbs lighter. The main difference is that the engine is behind the front axle instead of being entirely in front of it like in the Audi."
Looks/Style Ranked 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Hardtop Coupe RWD better.
"Classic 90s styling, smoother curves vs. harsher angles on the Audi, pop-up headlights."
