I so wanted to love this car after enjoying my 01 SO MUCH but although it's fast and fun, the mpg is pathetic (my 01 averaged 18-22 but I got 33-36 on cruises in the Rockies) and electrical gremlins are numerous. Strut replacement at $2000 is obscene and why water dribbles out of the side panels days after a wash is pathetic. The Alcantara wears very badly.

I have owned three BMW's, an Acura, a
Mercedes-Benz, and most recently an Infiniti
G35 Coupe. I never even considered
buying an Audi until I almost died in
my RWD Infiniti last winter in the
snow. So, trying to be conservative, I
bought the S4. All I can say is HOLY
COW!!! The thing is a rocket ship in
sheep's clothing. In sport mode, there
are few people who can take you at a
stop sign. It handles far better than
any of my RWD cars and it feels very
safe. Haven't had much snow this year
yet, but with the winter wheels on, I
don't anticipate any problems. Can't
see why I'd ever buy anything else.

I have not stopped smiling for 5 days
since I purchased my 2005 S4. This car
has everything I have ever dreamed of
in terms of style , gadgets , comfort
& power. Traded my BMW and would not
go back for any amount of money. If
you are in the market for a
performance car you would be a fool if
you didn't try the S4. Gas Mileage I
can see is going to be low but with
the power pack returning 340 bhp who
cares. Drive it you'll love it

Coming from a 02 BMW 3 series, I have
high expectations, and I have to say,
the solid, tutonic build quality of
this auto is amazing. Quieter, a touch
softer although still very stiff and
accurate, this car rocks. Really

If your in the market comparing M3 and
the C55 AMG, you must drive this car.
Easier drive than the M3, and not as
showy as the C55. (sometimes you don't
want people to know what you have).
Quattro makes any roadway feel safe and
stable, and V8 makes this car move.

I traded in an A4, which I loved, for
this car, but this car is in another
league from any other car I have ever
driven or owned. The engine is just
unreal. It pulls from any RPM. The
handling is sublime and the interior
is just beautiful. Every time I drive
this car it puts a smile on my face.
