A wolf in sheep's clothing
By SimpleSam on
2004 Audi S4 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6M)
The S4 is the first Audi I have ever purchased, and it will definitely not be my last. I have been a BMW fan for years, however, the interior design and class the S4 resembles cannot be matched by any current manufacturer. Power is plentiful even at low RPMs, giving passing lanes a sort of GT feel rather than mundane city driving. The grabby clutch did give me some issues during the first 1000kms, although the overall driving experience overcompensated for Audi's slight imperfection. My only major complaint is Audi waited so long to bring the RS4 stateside! Oh well, I will just have to settle for the sluggish 340 hp, road gripping, eye catching juggernaut. A tru1ely remarkable car.
Elegance, subtle styling, quattro 4WD, torque, night driving (great interior ambiance), bose sound system, interior build quality, comfort at all speeds, stability, compliments from others!!
Dashboard computer errors, grabby clutch, silver lining on shifter tends to rub off after 60,000 kms (manual transmission), a better compromise could be made between trunk space and backseat space, because after all, everybody wants a ride in the S4!
