The Ultimate Compromise
By DJD on
Vehicle2005 Audi S4 quattro AWD 2dr Cabriolet (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
ReviewI drove both new and used BMW's and Mercedes before I picked my 5-year-old S4 Cabrio. Haven't regretted my choice for a second. I think of this car as the "ultimate compromise." You can speed top-down through the sweepers of Big Sur in Summer or tackle the hills at Tahoe in the winter. You can hoon it like a teenager, or ferry the kids to grandma's in safety and comfort. And oh, the engine! It's the finest engine I've ever owned - power and torque and an understated rumble. It's hard to say how this car could be improved. A hint: the 2005 tends to be ~$10k cheaper than face-lifted 06-09 models, even though it's almost exactly identical under the skin.
Best FeaturesThe engine, the engine, the engine! The interior The Bose stereo
Worst FeaturesGas mileage is truly horrific. Pay up: it's worth it.
