I bought this car about 4 or 5 months ago, and i love it. For a V6 it seems far more powerful than a V6 on any other car. Not only does the engine feel powerful, but it sounds amazing, I always used to listen to the radio, but now generally leave it on a low volume so i can listen to the engine. The interior is not made for a 6-speed, as the armrest covers the cut hold and hand-break, so i would recommend an auto. I've had some problems with the headlight bulbs, which are decently costly, but that's natural as I'm approaching 100k miles. I baby this car though, i clay and wax it several times a year, definitely feels like a show car that's fun to drive!

Bought this car used, a first for me. It is the third Audi I have owned, the second A4. A tremendous used value and more reliable than a BMW (I have had 3 of those, too). Smooth ride, great ergonomics, extremely comfortable. My only complaint is that the auto tranny has trouble finding 1st gear, it can be rough. Other than that, a tremendous road car with great performance that I recommend highly.

The Audi A4 3.2 quattro is simply a great car. Mucho power, amazing handling -- this car feels like a "baby" S4....with double the fuel economy. The 2.0T engine has gotten a lot of praise but the naturally aspirated 255HP 3.2 V6 is smoother, more refined, in all ways a better feeling engine than the 200HP 4 cylinder 2.0T. Test drive both and you will see what I am talking about. I drove the 2.0T first and liked it, then I drove the 3.2 and had to have it. The engine note is gorgeous when you get on it in gears 2-4, very exotic sounding. The new 6-speed tiptronic is head and shoulders above Audi's previous 5-speed tips. In "S" mode this car really feels and acts quick.
A4 sedans and wagons get new bi-xenon headlamps along with a new satellite/navigation/AM and FM radio antenna. Satellite radio (XM or Sirius) is now optional on the A4 Cabriolet. OnStar is no longer an available option. A substantially refreshed A4 debuts as a midyear release, and boasts new engines, an upgraded chassis and revised styling.
