The Audi S4 is about the most amazing vehicle that I have ever driven. This completely outdoes any corvette. I just drove the new C6 and my S4 is faster and more fun to drive, and much more of an everyday car!! I give it hands down to Audi for their amazing technology and design.
The all leather interior. Bose speaker system...It also has an amazing 2 subwoofer's
In the 18 months I've owned this vehicle I put in over $3000 in repairs & maintenance. Something is continually going wrong with this car: Fuel gauge unit, throttle body, fuel line, ABS control unit, CV boot, turn signal. These were not minor repairs as the parts and labor were very expensive. I hope to sell this care very soon. I will never own another Audi.
It has power, traction & hugs the road. Also carries 4 people fairly comfortably and is quiet. Some nice luxury features like Xenon headlights, climate control, Bose system, & lots of computer gauge info.
Improve reliability!! Given the original retail cost, nothing major should break down on this car (with suggested maintenance done) within the first 100,000 miles!!!
The K03 turbo chargers run out of air in the upper RPM range. In order to get full performance out of this car the turbos will need replacement. You will probably blow the stock ones anyways so plan on either getting a car that has a warranty, or spending some serious dough out of pocket to get them fixed
Bose stereo, 2 tone leather interior, HID headlights, One touch windows, driver display with navigation, auto dimming mirrors, home control unit, cellular phone, low end torque that could pull a tractor out of a canyon
Stiffer suspension and short shifter to clean up some of the slop
Excellent acceleration and handling. Great summer cruiser and ski vehicle. 27mpg on trips. Tends to sandblast rocker panels over time. Essentially a 4-wheel drive, 4-door Corvette I can use to haul my kids to the ski slopes!
Acceleration, interior design, comfort, and clandestine, yet classy exterior.
Deflect rocks away from rocker panels to prevent denuding the paint.
I've had my 2000 Audi S4 for two years now, and
it continues to thrill me each and
every time I drive it. It's been
reliable (so far) and is great fun to
drive in the midwest in winter with
snow tires. I have held off on
upgrading to the newer version, cause
I am still happy to be driving this
Handing, cornering, speed, exterior
and interior design.
Not many - if you can get your hands
on a clean one, it's a steal.
