2007 Audi S4 quattro 2dr Convertible AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
Simply the best car I have owned and here is my list of previous cars: 07 M5, 05 M3, 06 Cayman, 03 M5.
Just purchased a 07 S4 convertible with 24k miles.
This is an outstanding car for the money.
It performs very well, goes where you point it and blazing fast.
I smile every time I turn the key in the morning.
Gas mileage is what it is and you can average over 20mpg in the city if you baby it. I have a family of 4 and this car is the perfect machine for a daily driver and fun for the dad.
And that Audi craftsmanship, you canít go wrong there either.
A high-revving V8 with 300+ hp and torque, AWD, luxury appointments, good looks inside and out, not everyone has one, it leaves little more to desire.
The only thing is better gas mileage but what can you expect from an AWD sports sedan with a V8.
And it's about fair compared to other V8 sedans in its class.
I will probably use all the 340hp less than 5% of the time but it's great to have the option to travel that fast when you need it.
Plus that sound is music to my ears.
Interior is typical Audi fashion - business like but materials, design, fit and finish are the best in the bunch.
I haven't received a single complaint about the backseat room yet
I know a sports sedan with AWD that weighs this much shouldn't get the best mileage but just so you know, GM can build even bigger V8's with better fuel economy. Just saying.
I'm also surprised Audi hasn't figured out how to build a hand brake that doesn't interfere with the armrest.
There's some great engineering in this car and then you have this annoying flaw where you have to adjust the armrest eveyrtime you pull the handbrake.
2007 Audi S4 quattro 2dr Convertible AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6M)
Just purchased the car 1 month ago. I read all the car magazines and previously owned an M5, a Corvette and a Porsche Boxer, but this car beats them all. I now understand what handling like if it were on rails means. Gorgeous exterior and interior, much nicer than BMW. Sound of V8 is absolutely addictive. I love its rumble, even at low speeds. Only downer is the awful gas mileage. At 80 on the highway you be lucky to get 20 to 21 MPG (My Vette used to get close to 30)A few cowl shakes, but then, it's a convertible. I love it !
Engine performance and sound. Interior amenities and gadgets. All wheel drive. Can't wait to go skiing
Do something about that terrible gas mileage. Improve the center arm rest, you can't raise the hand brake when it is down.
After a long and arduous search and having owned many brands/models prior (BMW, Infiniti, Cadillac, Honda, Benz) I still keep coming back to Audi. Without a doubt Audi still makes the most refined and well thought out interiors in the world. I kept going back and forth between M3 and S4 and after much local searching was able to snag a low mile, pristine S4 from a private seller. Having owned an A6, 2.7T manual prior I was more than ready for a return. This car is amazing...it fits you like a glove, handles like few others on the road and is a practical hauler for life.
Interior, unbridled acceleration and steering response and stealth appearance. Will roast 99% of vehicles on the road and looks like a daily driver.
The e-brake/arm rest re-set is well known but a minor issue, a little more leg room in back would be great (addressed in '10 models).
This car is awesome. In no way too flashy. The audi S4 performs really well and gets the job done on the road. I chose it mainly because I wanted a complete package I could enjoy for years to come. It is also a pretty rare car and I have only seen one more other exact car as mine on the road. I have the dtm package on black so its a very low profile look. The exhaust sound is very menacing stock and it sounds amazing with the windows down. The transmission shifts smoothly and the power is across the whole power band. Its amazing how you don't have to wait for any turbo to give you the extra power you need. Its all there.
The front Recaros are very comfortable. The engine sounds amazing. The DTM body package is very distinct and gets me a lot of comments. The interior is second to none. I have yet to feel that any other car beat this interior. Everything is solid.
MPG. But then again, its a V8 and it is expected. I usually get around 23 mpg on the highway which is pretty good for a performance car. I expect to own this car for years.
