    2012 Audi S4 Review
    says:
    Great looking car for those that do not need to telegraph the excellent performance within. An amazing balance of performance and functionality. With the rear seats folded you have an effective cargo space. The interior is well planed beautiful and ergonomically efficient. The power is smooth and more then claimed and for another 5000.00 dollars you can safely bump up the horse power and torque to way beyond M3 levels 0-100 in 7 sec or less easily. Do make sure you have the drive select and the Sports differential options. The all wheel drive is great in any weather and you can, if you follow the shift lights avg. 25 mpg. I love this car it handles better then many pure sports cars I have driven and is comfortable getting groceries or going to a black tie event.
    Cargo Capacity Ranked 2012 BMW M3 worse.
    "Rear seats fold down."
    Family Car Ranked 2012 BMW M3 worse.
    "Bigger back seats, more cargo space. Better gas milage"

    Absolutely A Blast To Drive. Look For Excuses To Drive It. — Owning an Audi S4 is a unique experience. It offers the same performance and fun as an exotic car but is still practical for daily use. I got many compliments driving this car and never had a single issue. The sport differential was amazing around corners it just won't let you slide out. It has amazing gas mileage too for the amount of power the car has. Very comfortable ride as well when in comfort mode and even when in dynamic. Overall I would recommend the S4 to anyone who is a car enthusiast or enjoys nice things that still remain family friendly and practical if it's in your budget.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fast with great MPG, Sleek Styling and amazing handling

    Cons: Pricey to own

    Perfect Under The Radar Rocket — Too early to tell, stop back later for a more up to date review after a few more miles under the belt - 6MT so will be little different to the Auto. Build quality is excellent will be monitoring the carbon buildup problems that seem to plague some of the FSI Direct injection Audi's

    Pros: Sports Diff and dynamic suspension

    Cons: too early - stop back later

    Awesome All Around 4 Door Rocket That Looks Beautiful. — Engine and transmission are best in class, for any $$. Brilliant 3L supercharged engine coupled to an equally brilliant double clutch manual auto transmission. Instant power at all RPMs. Reasonable gas mileage only If driven passively Could use a firmer suspension in order to match the power train.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Brilliant 3L supercharged engine coupled to an equally brilliant double clutch manual auto transmission.  Instant power at all RPMs. Reasonable gas mileage only If driven passively

    Cons: Not many cons.  Interior is too stark and cheap looking on the 2012.  It was improved on the 2013. Could use a louder exhaust note and bigger anti roll bars.

    Love This Car. — I've had this car for almost two years now. Have not had any issues, and it has been putting a big fat grin on my face every time I drive it. The supercharged 3.0 liter V6 is an amazing engine, and it's easy to see why it has won Ward's Engine of the Year 3 consecutive times. Super low end torque, refined, but makes a really nice sound when you open it up. There's few sedans on the market as capable as this one. It also does very well on snow, when we go up to ski country.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: - Stealthy.
    - Very powerful.
    - Amazing handling, especially after installing Alu Kreuz.

    Cons: - Ride can be harsh on some of the roads in the Bay Area.
