    Pros: Very quick for a diesel, and with some luggage space

    Cons: Not as much of a load lugger as others in its class

    A4 Avant — Decent Fuel economy and great traction that beats the ride of any sport ute'. Needs better power for this weight of car and with the great traction of quattro it makes you want some serious power to put to the wheels. Unfortunate the S4 has such poor fuel economy.

    Pros: Great interior and build quality

    Cons: TIP auto transmission is not sport enough, Coil pack faults

    Audi Knows How To Make Real Cars — Packed with loads of engineering, however the stock turbo+manifold is lacking..planning on adding a bigger turbo and a german aftermarket manifold. Got 19"x8" AVS Model 7 gunmetal rimz and Kumho tires.

    Pros: Loads of engineering and tuning with the laptop to ecu usb cable.

    Cons: Hard to get rid of certain bugs.

    Not Your Mother's Station Wagon — great handling and road feel, fit and finish are perfect. This little car has saved my butt on many an icy road where SUV's were in the ditch I drove right on by. I will never drive another car without quattro while living in the hinterlands.

    Pros: quattro, awesome service which goes above & beyond always

    Cons: audi has discontinued the great maintenance program for their cars
    which for me is a huge benefit

    2.0 Tdi S-line Heaven — Very, very nice car. Superb quality and overall feel. This was also my first diesel and I was pleasantly surprised by it. Not the smelly noisy thing I was expecting but reasonably refined and fairly brisk. Also handled pretty well, with loads of grip. It fired through corners with no fuss that had the Seat Cupra corkscrewing and getting out of shape. With the S-line kit and 18" wheels it also looked superb; to my eyes one of the nicest looking 'norma'l cars on the road. And I could lob four mountain bikes on the roof, all the kit in the back, head off for the day and then posh it up in the evening with no probs - top tastic.

    Pros: Chic, stylish, superb build, looks, feel.

    Cons: Expensive, but worth it.

    Expensive To Own, But Fun To Drive — Audi's are not cheep to own, but if you can afford them they are really fun. the Avant is quite an ugly body style, I had to do a lot of work to it to make it look good, but it was worth it. Also go for the bigger engine. the 2.0T was too weak

    Pros: Handles great

    Cons: Expensive daily driver

    Expensive Daily Driver But Sexy! — This was my daily drive untill my ex wife got it in the divorse. I loved this car, although it is expensive to keep maintained it is worth the comfort. It handles great but is weak on power when stock. I had aftermarket fuel ingectors, air intake, exhast system and chip on mine and that really pepped it up! It would be worth sporting for the bigger engine if I buy another one.

    Pros: Sexy drive with amazing handling

    Cons: Expensive to own

    Nice Family-car — Nice family-car. Luxurious. Very comfortable drive, also when your driving 120 mph. It's a semi-automatic, when you drive it full automatic the car has a poor throttle response . When you shift it manually the throttle response and accerelation are much better when you hit the gas. Gear changes are very smooth! Relatively high maintenance costs. Electronics not that reliable. This model has Known problems with the automatic transmission. Not spacey enough as family car for me, but that's very personal.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Luxurious. Very comfortable.

    Cons: Known for problems with the automatic transmission. Relatively high maintenance costs. Electronics not that reliable.
