2006 Audi S4 25quattro Special Edition quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6M)
The Audi is flawless with exception to the throttle. Quite abrupt and takes careful modulation to get the smoothest operation. Best car I've owned to date. Comfort is wonderful and conveniences are outstanding. Performance is on par or better than most sport cars in the higher dollar range. Engine performance and torque are nothing short of massive, without being peaky. Lug it in a lower gear and it accelerates away without hesitation. I can't wait to drive the RS4. Fit and trim is perfect. Transmission is precise with positive shifting. Front to rear bias is absolutely terrific with neutral steering. Sound system is perfectly matched to the Audi without being harsh and overbearing.
The whole package! It's just what you'd expect in a germany Touring Sedan. Rivals and surpasses anything in it's class. If you didn't have a chance to purchase one of the 250 you're going to have to step up to the RS4 to eclipse it.
Better throttle modulation. Less abrupt on/off fly-by-wire in lower gears. Can be annoying at low speeds. Get rid of the top speed and rev limiters.
