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

The Flying Machine — Love it. It's fast, it's sexy! What more could you want?! Just a shame I don't get to drive it very often!! Big, safe, and as Craig says 'it's big pimping'. Not fast enough for my bloke though! Depreciates quickly which is not good. Very good Audi concert sound system!

Pros: Lovely

Cons: Nowt!

You've Never Loved An Audi Like This One. — this is my absolute favorite car ever. there's nothing bad i can think to say. despite the sticker price. drives wonderfully, suspension is above average. the only problem i'd say is the form factor-i feel almost claustrophobic in it.

Pros: design. engine. performance. brand.

Cons: a little cramped inside.
