2007 Audi RS 4 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6M)
It is difficult to find any fault with this extremely well engineered car. Its DRC offers a very compliant ride when desired, but stiffens in the corners for confident handling in aggressive mode. The engine is superb and an aftermarket exhaust system (several are available) actually makes meaningfully more power. Its redline is 8250 rpm and it is a joy to drive with smoothly delivered power across the rpm range. Winter handling with winter tires is exceptional and the car is on rails in hard packed snow. The design is distinctive even compared to current model A4s. Perhaps the only thing that I would change is the seat height, which does not lower sufficiently for me (I am 6').
Engine, engine, engine! Quattro with its rear bias is also terrific.
Stiffer anti-sway bars to remove what is left of understeer in this front-heavy car. Lower front seat height. Sport exhaust option, although many owners, including me have fitted aftermarket exhaust systems for more power and better sound.
