2005 Audi S4 quattro AWD 2dr Cabriolet (4.2L 8cyl 6M)
I bought this vehicle new as an '05 leftover. I can truly say this is the most fun car I've ever driven. I never thought anything on four wheels could be more fun than my '99 Prelude, but this is like a Prelude on steroids! I love the slightly lower- key styling (no fins, spoilers, etc.) and the aural excitement from that V- 8. Handling and performance are both superb. I've seen many mentions of this car's low gas mileage, but I've been averaging about 23-24 mpg. The main downside so far is that the generally beat-up streets of Baltimore City are eating my tires at an insane rate (not really a fault of the vehicle, though). For a car this spirited and fun, however, it's worth it!
Low-key styling, great handling, and a truly crankin' V-8!
I'm hard-pressed to make any suggestions for improvement except to somehow invent high-performance tires that never need replacing! :) Thank you, Audi!
