    Buy A Car With 4 Rings On The Hood. — Just got it. It's simply awesome. Lot's of power, but still not enough, great styling, handles like it's on rails. I've tried to get it loose, it just sticks to the road. Great on gas too, 32 mpg!!! If you want a STI or Evo but are short on $$, get this instead, it won't let you down.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: everything

    Cons: insurance

    Fun Speedy Car — I love the car the only negative part about it is the small engine. Everything else is perfect looks beautiful drives very nicely. Overall a wonderful car and daily driver. Would reccomend it to others in a second. Gas mileage is excellent as well averaging 32 on the highway and 28 around town.

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

    Pros: Great Gas Mileage

    Cons: Not that much power

    My Opinions And Experience With The 05 A4 — alloy wheel metal is too soft and scratches very easily, Power window motors all failed within the first three years of owning the car. Interior paint on plastic parts chips easily, drink holders are very poorly placed, but make sense when you consider people do not eat or drink while driving in Germany

    Pros: Super comfortable even over long distances

    Cons: interior parts seem cheaply made

    Sweet Ass Car If You Have The Money To Maintain It — Auid's are beautiful cars but they require a lot of high priced mainance. The performance is great when at its best, but the A4 isnt enough speed for me :) The street performance is goodso long as you get the turbo and the sport speed pkg

    Pros: Luxury, comfort, esthetics

    Cons: Pricey

    Defiantly A Keeper — only thing i dont like is that is automatic, and if your a chick and care about cup holders, they get in the way, but for me they are fine. the turbo is sick, and for a 4 cylinder it is fast and quick, and gets good gas milage for the long hall if you don't drive it the way I do.

    Pros: its an AUDI

    Cons: get a manual

    Thoughts So Far — - Fast, but could be faster; braking is very good; feels front-heavy in the turns - Generally very solid build quality; no perceptible flexing, no groans or creaks, and everything feels high-quality - interior is beautiful; exterior could be more aggressive - mileage is surprisingly good - definitely a lot of fun to drive, but its not a BMW

    Pros: solid build and feel, quattro grip, excellent sound system, excellent engine sound, premium feel, surprisingly good gas mileage

    Cons: numb steering, could be faster, not edgy enough in feel or appearance, front-heavy handling

    It Is Really Fast — It is amazing! It has really good acceleration and braking. It doesn't have any problems. But I have really good warrentys on it so I don't have to worry. It gets good milage but you have to spend a lot on gas because it uses premium. IT IS REALLY FUN TO DRIVE!!!!! : D

    Pros: Its amazing

    Cons: It doesn't have GPS

    About The Audi —

    When you hammer the gas in the A4, there's a brief delay and then you get a nice spurt of acceleration. Same with the steering. There's a little play in the wheel when you corner; then the sporty sedan bites into the pavement. The A4 takes to the road the way a debutante enters a party: There's a period of deferential reserve before it warms to the scene. You want the A4 to get up and boogie. Its shapely design suggests performance, and its curves resemble those of the more exotic Audi TT roadster. The cockpit grips you snugly, as if preparing the driver for some serious throttling. But the A4's head wins out over its heart, at least in the entry-level 1.8T model. It provides a refined ride that is spirited at times, but this car is too prim to let its hair down. The "Tiptronic" shifter that comes with the optional 5-speed automatic transmission reflects the A4's button-down soul. I was skeptical when I first pushed the gear selector out of conventional drive and over into clutchless shift mode, expecting a lazy driver's version of a stick shift. There is some of that. Moving through the Tiptronic's six gears requires nothing more than an effortless flick of the wrist. And in case you forget, the transmission downshifts for you when you slow down or stop. But there was some functionality on top of the faux racing schtick. The Tiptronic shifts gears the instant you tap the stick forward, without the delay there would be with a clutch. It will keep the transmission in any gear you choose, if you feel you need the power, while providing a broader range of choice than a typical automatic transmission. But for regular driving, why bother? The Tiptronic got boring after awhile, especially since it didn't serve much of a purpose. And it began to seem like an innovation designed to enhance the A4's image as a road car more than the actual driving experience. There's a lot of that identify confusion going on in the A4, which strives to fulfill the luxury and performance expectations that come with the Audi brand while staying squarely under $30,000 at the low end. A leatherette interior is standard, for instance, but the same trim level doesn't include power seats. There's both luxury and performance in the A4, but not quite enough of either.

    Pros: Nice color, good tints, great feel, drives smooth

    Cons: not fast enough

    The Best Car I Ever Owned — This is an amazing car, performance and looks are just killer! If only the roads were longer - with less cops to spoil your fun everyday could be the drive of your life. It has loads of power with the turbo kicking up output to 140kw - it just presses you back into the seat everytime you floor the pedal. And superb handling...

    Pros: Engine, Handling, Ride

    Cons: Fuel consumption... but hey - comes with the territory
