Great vehicle! First Audi I've owned. Comfortable, fast and not too flashy. Was looking for an A8 at the time. Came across the S4 and drove it home. So far, the most fun vehicle I've owned and seems to be as reliable as a Benz. The only qualm is the cost of service is as expensive as Jags. Fortunately it's never in shop though but for the scheduled intervals (every 10000 miles... awesome!). I've come to the conclusion that the next vehicle upgrade will be for another S4!

This is an all around great car. It's an absolute blast to drive, and you can blow away most cars you'll encouter at the red light on your way home from the grocery store. Plus, it's just a little bit different, which is always good.

I couldn't be happier with the stock performance of this car. The price to performance and features ratio of this car can't be beat, and simple upgrades can make this car truly track ready. In the Northeast or snowy climes, no car on the road can touch it (B6 S4 and RS 6 aside). But quality, reliability, and dealer service is absolutely brutal. Electrical system problems are Audi's specialty, but I have also had problems with everything from rattles to rivets popping to coolant pumps failing to leather spalling to ... Service quality and knowledge from dealers is poor (e.g. Audi service does not feel it's necessary to rotate tires).

I recently went through the experience of having our 1st child and after 6 months realized that a stable of 2 Porsches wasn't working very well. I have always been a Porsche fanatic and owned a 930 turbo and a Boxster. Knowing that I needed to buy a more practical car but realizing I wouldn't be happy with less performance, I stumbled across the Audi S4. This car is the very best all around car that is on the market. It offers a stock 250hp twin turbo engine (which can easily be tuned to 310hp) with a max torque at 1850rpms. This thing shoots off the line and handles corners like a Porsche. It's also very comfortable, fits a baby seat in the backseat, has 4 doors, huge trunk, and can handle snow.

This car is a blast to drive! Great
interior quality. I purchased used (w/
10,000 miles) and have not had any
reliability issues to date. Very few
S4's on the road, so it's great driving
a unique car. I have no complaints so
far (except for the poor gas mileage),
and would HIGHLY recommend to anyone
interested in a used B5 S4.

i did my homework and checked
everything that came close to
comparing. Nothing matches the feel of
driving this car, its handling and
design make it the perfect combination
of luxury and power. if you havent
driven one you couldnt possibly
understand. nothing else compares
