2005 Audi A4 3.0 quattro AWD 2dr Cabriolet (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
The 2005 Audi A4 3.0 quattro Cabriolet is a great car. The AWD has been great when driving up to the mountains when there is lots of snow. I can use the "ski" bag for two snowboards with bindings on, which is great for a convertible. The car is incredibly quiet on the road. This car is very comfortable even at top speeds with the top down, although the Bose 9-speaker stereo has a hard time getting heard at those speeds.
The interior is great. The manual gearbox is very responive, the 6th gear lowers revs considerably. My backseat passengers are very comfortable. The lever to increase boot size when top up is great for large luggage.
The electric roof sometimes shuts the stereo for a blip of a second. I would like to see this car with the 3.2 engine and paddle shifts, as S4 is too pricey.
