2003 Audi A4 3.0 Fwd 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
I have owned several convertibles from Triumphs to Mercedes, I have never had one as perfect as the Audi A4 Cabrio. Imagine a car that treats you well when cruising the boulevard and at the same time lets you throw it into a corner at heart pounding speeds. A car that handles like a sports car but lets you take 3 friends along for the ride. Ar car that makes your 10 wife look like an 11 and gets you all the looks you need. PERFECT.
I got the sport and premium package, I recommend it to anyone looking at this car.
Looking forward to trading it in for the 2009 V8 S4 version.
I came across a "too good to be true" deal on a 2003 1.8t Convertible which I roughly invested $2500 into. First thing that went bad was the Ignition coil. ($1,200 repair for 2 coils) which now I know will cost under $200 to replace all 4 (Thanks to YouTube and AutoZone.) Second thing gone bad was the drivers side CV Joint ($500 inluding towing and went bad again because I bought a cheap replacement) Now with my 3 month visit to the pothole capital, NYC, Ive replaced ALL front control arms which were already bad and Drivers Side CV Joint ($491 on ECS Tuning and $500 Labor at Lennys Auto Service in Brighton beach and I AM SO SO HAPPY with the results. This car is a dream to drive and a keeper
I love the:
-Panty Dropping Styling
-Body Kit Options
-Fit and Finish
ETC. Overall, this car has WAY more pros than cons.
This car is VERY safe and love the onboard computers. Saved my ass big time in snowey/Icey
BUT (and its a BIG BUT) If you cant afford to maintain it when needed, Buy a boring all too common, typical, run of the mill american or Japanese car. German cars are built for those who love luxury sports cars with superb handling and able to separate themselves from the masses. I LOVE MY AUDI.
Bushing Quality MUST be improved.
Plastics in the interior need to be of higher quality.
Just got our new 2004 puppy, love at
first sight, great handling , zippy
highway performance, no miles but still
getting 26mpg. top operation is a
snap "1 finger" confort plus in the
seats,even with back problems this car
is confortable. Would recommend to
anyone who wants a class act
Rear detachable windscreen really keeps
the back flow out, can listen to the
great sounds or talk without
difficulty, interior and options are
None thought of at this point, a tad
more punch coming off the line would be
