My 08 Audi A4 Cabriolet Quattro — the performance of this car is ok but overall is really good its got good acceleration cause of the quattro i really love how audi has designed there cars they look so agressive and mean its sick and this car is a blast to drive with the top down and with my beautiful girlfriend alexa next to me holding my hand as im taking turns at over 80mph.

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

Pros: the all wheel drive and the convertible

Cons: the tranny has had some odor issues

A Competent, All-around Performer —

In the summer of 2008, gas prices shot up to over $4.00/gallon for regular. When the transmission on the family's 1995 Audi A6 started to fail, my dad took this as an opportunity to decrease our family's gas bills by getting him out of our 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Hemi, and into something that gets better mileage. The man drives 20,000+ miles a year, so the car had to be comfortable. Our steep driveway as well our yearly and numerous trips to VT dictated that the car be 4WD. My dad was also looking to get back into a stick shift, no doubt steered by his enthusiast son. My dad had one brand in mind - BMW. BMW is a brand that signifies that you've arrived. Luxury, superb driving experience, and a good resale value make any BMW a good investment over time. My dad had also seen what a fantastic job my friend Gareth had done with his 2000 E39 BMW 528i that he started to consider a 3-series with xDrive AWD. Early searches led him to mostly 328xi models with automatics. The dealer then found an off-lease 2006 330xi with 8k miles and a 6-speed manual. I told my dad to wait on that deal. The BMW was bit too pricey at $34k, and Gareth and I had just been out cruising in Danbury when we stopped by the Audi dealer. I liked the improved B7 A4 styling (c. 2005) but was unaware that Audi had released the B7 Special Edition. It had a subtle-but-stylish body kit, sexy 17-inch wheels, just enough options to keep it from being a complete stripper, and best of all, the 2.0 liter turbocharged and direct-injected 4-cylinder. I told him he had to go check it out. The car pictured here is black on black and had no additional options other than the Special Edition Pkg, which came with 1-year free Sirius satellite radio, heated leather seats, 6-speed manual, 17-in Pirelli P6 all-seasons, and a sunroof. What made the deal sweeter was that the dealer wanted just over $30,000 for the whole thing. And my mom, who balked at the purchase of a "badge car," loved her old Audi and preferred the new Audi to the BMW. That just about sealed the deal. So (finally), what is it like to drive. Well, I never got to test drive the 330xi, as I was out of town that weekend, but my friends 528i is a slightly more engaging drive, despite being automatic. But the Audi is no slouch. It is very light on its feet, coupled with light clutch and shifter actions, and sharp steering. It also has a better ride, fuel economy (30+ mpg on the highway!) and the bad-weather traction of quattro AWD. The black interior accented with aluminum has a very austere German feel, much different than the warm beige w/ wood in the 1998 A4, but works very well I think. And with 9800 miles logged from June '08 - December '08, it has yet to put a foot wrong and my father has nary a complaint - only that my mom has abandoned her Mini Cooper S for the A4 as her winter vehicle of choice! Overall, it is a very competent car with enough space for 4 adults to travel in comfort. Audi's confident style, excellent build quality, and smooth dynamics make this car a perfect fit in the family.

Pros: Seamless style, Direct injection turbo power, slick 6-spd, quattro AWD

Cons: All season tires, sometimes-tricky 1-2 shift

2008 Audi A4 2.0t — Performance is quite good, only had a v4, so not too powerful. The acceleration is a little bit lagged, but overall its a smooth drive. The build is very high quality, and everything looks good, inside and out. The cost is good, gets great mileage and lease payments are good. The A4 is VERY fun. Its a sporty car, comfortable, and has a good sound system. Overall, grade A+!

Pros: Looks sexy, good sound system

Cons: weak engine

Sweet — Awesome car for those wanting something fast AND comfortable. My buddy (the owner) calls it "rapid-couch". Build quality is top notch with tons of features, yet it doesn't feel very heavy driving around the city and on the highway. Quite a fast car. 2.0l turbocharged FWD, all the options we know of.

Pros: Fun!

Cons: Too damn quiet when going fast!

2008 Audi A4 2.0t Quattro —

2008 Audi Model: A4 Trim: S-Line 2.0T Quattro Color: Quartz Metallic Drivetrain: 6-speed manual 2.0L 200 HP Optional Upgrades: Dual power seats Dual Heated Seats Bose Premium Sound System Bluetooth Average Cost (Gas Tank): $49.65 (Premium) Maintenance: Paid through 100k Pros: I simply love the car. Whether it's hugging a turn in the city, or letting loose on the highway, the car remains quiet, tight, and easy to handle. Unlike comparable models, Audi's real-time AWD hugs turns. The 60/40 front bias gives it a more drivable feel, while still enabling it to weave in and out of traffic. Little to no body roll (which was a huge selling point). The attention to detail both internally and externally leave no doubt that this car was designed with the driver as well as passengers in mind. (This is noticeable both in the front and rear passenger seats -- as each has plenty of room to relax). Cons: 0-60: 6.5 seconds (though in all fairness it feels faster than test numbers indicate) I'd recommend Audi to anyone in the luxury car-buyer bracket - It's a great value for the money, and is definitely one of (if not THE) most drivable vehicle on the road. A joy to own. Period.

Pros: Handling, Appearance, Styling, Quality, Cost of Ownership

Cons: Performance (only slightly)

Total Value Package — Handling, braking, sporty feeling/acceleration. Lowered S-Line appearance. Gas Mileage on highway is just amazing. Gives me around 34-35 mpg. In the city its gives me b/w 26-29. This car a dual-character. It gets very sporty when throttle is on fire, and at the same time gets very calm when cruising.

Pros: Total value and performance package

Cons: Couldn't find any,,,

Audi A4 2.0tq S-line — Fantastic car with great pickup while remaining very fuel efficient. Traditionally brilliant Audi interior enhanced by the S-line and Titanium packages. The S-line suspension is further bolstered by the ever amazing Audi Quattro all-wheel-drive system. All in all a excellent introduction to the Luxury Class while remaining youthful and sporty.

Pros: Quick, Efficient, Well Appointed

Cons: Pricey

Great Car — Great car, looks and drives well..... This is a very good solid car that handles much better than it's predecessor. Extra's are quite expensive but the build quality is second to none. The LED lights are a must for this car as it makes it stand out on the road from the rest.

Pros: LED lights, ride, handling and looks.

Cons: Price.

A4-ordable — The armrest is positioned poorly and obstructs the cup holder and accessory outlet. It is amazing car to drive, it handles extremely well, especially with the sport suspension package added. It can be chipped to gain 50 horespower. i can't seem to chirp the tires as the quattro drive stick s like glue!

Pros: performance, handling, build quality

Cons: minor issues with interior conveniences

Overall:

A Mid-sizer For Our Times — With the 1·8T, Audi has put in a fairly economical engine that performs when it needs to—and sips fuel the other times. With a sublime eight-speed automatic gearbox (far better than in the Mercedes-Benz C-Klasse), the car does deliver above-average mileage, but it finds it hard to put the power to the road without a Quattro system, scrambling to get grip up front. The interior is beautiful as always (BMW could still learn a thing or two, as could Mercedes-Benz) and the sat-nav is fairly clever though it is missing Karo Drive and the bypass in Wellington. Looks-wise, the A4 has lost that Bauhaus rationality as with the B6 and B7, but in many respects it looks sleeker and the proportions are closer to those of its chief German rear-wheel-drive rivals—for better or worse. A great daily driver, comfortable over long distances, but don’t expect an S3 hidden under the new exterior. The 2·0TD is the big seller and I would probably go for that if it were my money.

Pros: Interior design, gearbox, fuel economy, satellite navigation

Cons: Grip
