The Ultimate Compromise

2005 Audi S4 quattro AWD 2dr Cabriolet (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

Review

I 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 Features

The engine, the engine, the engine! The interior The Bose stereo

Worst Features

Gas mileage is truly horrific. Pay up: it's worth it.
