2004 Audi S4 Manual 26K miles

What a blast to drive.
I bought this low mile beauty above market and it was a joy to drive.
Both it the city where I absolutely rocketed between stoplights and in the city where I flew around curves the Audi never stopped delighting me.
I had the manual (which is why I had to sell it after only 2K miles due to a bad knee) which I imagine is more fun.
It stuck to the road like it was glued.
I never really drove it in the winter so the AWD was only tested in rain - it worked great.
Absolutely a joy to drive unless stuck in traffic.
I could not make myself go slow unless I was trapped in traffic.
I replaced it with a Pontiac G8 GT.

Pros : Performance is awesome, one of the best looking sport sedans , interior is spacious, sound system is great, fully loaded with options, very nice seats. Cons: 1) very poor reliability! So far : bearings, engine cover gaskets, coils, light sensors, seat warmers wiring, clutch!, control arm. I was not expecting that many issues with a car that I take good care of and I hardly overdrive it! Good thing all were covered by extended warranty. 2) MPG : 14 to 15 3) Front heavy due to engine weight I am reluctant to buy another Audi, although the S5 is hard to resist. I owned 328i BWM for 5 yrs I did not have any problems until around 100K miles,I started having problems with S4 at 30K mi

Was looking for a 4 door with some grunt...domestics (Charger, Impala, etc) were garbage. S4 head and shoulders above. This car gets after it. Seats are extremely supportive and engine growl is addicting. Hugs the road and begs for curves. Don't know if I would recommend for a commuter car. Made more for crooked back roads. Best looking car on road in my opinion and it's 5 years old at this point! Averaging around 19 combined mpg--and that's with me "going easy" on acceleration and driving a lot of interstate. Like I said, not necessarily a commuter car or a car that's going to attract a lot of attention (a good thing in my book!).
