2010 Audi S4 Premium Plus quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 7AM)
Last 5 cars: Audi A4, Infinity G35, BMW 325, 328, 530. Wanted a German car larger than a 3 and smaller than a 5 series. This Audi is essentially a 4 series size. The back seats are usable. The car is flawless inside and out. The A4 was a better value but the sport seats not as nice, engine was a bit noisy at 85MPH with 6 speed. The S4 with a 330 HP 7 speed is composed in the city and a beast on the highway when you need it to be. Effortless power and stability. It is not quite as agile as a BMW 3 that has better weight balance but is more stable at speed since it is larger and safer. Audi excels in style, composure, beauty and in the S4 version is rare. 29MPG Hwy, 25 MPG city.
Nappa leather sport seats for long trips. 7 speed dual automatic clutch. Bang and Olufsen sound. Great MPG for HP. Better low end torque than BMW 330. Most options included like satellite radio, folding rear seats, heated seats, ipod adapter real cup holders all unlike BMW. Rear view camera.
Glare in side view mirrors from dash. Poor wind management especially with sunroof open. Make second cup holder in center console same size as larger one. Otherwise very little to complain about. Navigation was over priced option. Really love this car.
