A perfect blend of sport and luxury

2001 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)
I have owned my A4 for seven-plus years. Like any German car, service isn't inexpensive, but the key is keeping up with regular maintenance. My car just hit 100k miles and it still makes me smile when I turn the key. No major issues. Lots of fun to drive. The quattro AWD system is a dream in snow. I have owned three Audis (2000 A6 Avant; 1997 Cabriolet; this A4) and I loved them all.
Audi interiors have been the industry leader for a decade. Quattro AWD. Metallic silver paint (required for a proper German car). Smooth V6 engine. Bauhaus exterior design ("form follows function") still looks innovative, understated and clean eight years on.
Perhaps a bit more horsepower would be nice. Could use a larger back seat area (corrected in future A4 versions).
