2003 Audi A4 Sedan 3.0 Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Prior to this purchase, I had looked at
the BMW 330i, Lexus IS300, & Infinity
G35. The exterior/interior quality,
performance, and amenities make the A4
the best choice. The CVT provides
quick acceleration; the premium package
offers great comfort. I can't say
enough about the sports package which
makes this car a joy to drive. I love
the automatic heated and dimming
sideview mirrors, dual climate zone,
fully automatic seats, and Bose sound
system. This car is SOLID!!


Best Features

Exterior and interior beauty, sports package.


Worst Features

Pump up the horsepower!!

2003 Audi A4 Sedan 3.0 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car is the most beautiful sedan
out there, far surpassing a plain 3
series BMW. However, the ride is made
uncomfortable by several things. I
traded a 2000 A4 and the seat on my new
Audi is 3 inches narrower and quite bit
harder foam. The console is too wide
and I hit my knee on it constantly.
Many people comment on this bothersome
flaw. The ride is extremely harsh and
vibrating over small bumps and yet
bouncy as a 1970 Buick over large dips.
I do not have the sport suspension but
I drove it and it could find bumps to
crash over on the surface of glass. The
speed to 60 mph is just as fast with
the 1.8. Save your money and go for the
turbo.


Best Features

Beautiful in and out, flawless finish, very high quality materials.


Worst Features

Narrower or padded console, wider seat with softer foam, much more horsepower, softer ride of small, choppy bumps.

Review

I looked for a long time and drove many
cars before I decided on the A4. Sure
the IS300 and the BMW may be a little
quicker 0-60, but I wanted a car that
was more than speed. I feel that when
you jump to this level of car that it
should deliver in all categories. The
Audi does that. I have always been told
that for the best ride and handling,
you must go with a German car. I have
not been disappointed. I chose the Audi
over the BMW for two reasons. The
interior styling and bang for your
buck. I feel that the Audi gives you a
better value for your dollar. Also my
experience with the service department
has been great.


Best Features

The interior lights. Sport suspension. Bose stereo. The exterior design is modern without being too radical.


Worst Features

More horsepower of course. Deeper growl (noise) from the V6. Service levels should be performed at 5000-mile intervals.

2003 Audi A4 Sedan 1.8T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

BMW owners say that they are superior
because BMW just make BMW's where Audi
is just a glorified Volkswagon. Doesn't
BMW also make the Mini? The only thing
that the Volkswagon has in common with
the Audi A4 is that they are made in
Germany. I have test drove a BMW before
I got my Audi and the BMW is outdated
and cannot handle corners or any sports
driving. If you want a car that is
smooth, updated, classy and fast, get
the A4!


Best Features

Sports suspension, xenon lamps, 17 inch tires, Bose sound system, Triptronic, interior lighting.


Worst Features

Lag before Turbo kicks in, sounds of air through the drivers window at speeds over 80mph

Review

Overall I think this car is very
competent. The car sticks to the road
like glue, but lacks "whiplash"
acceleration.


Best Features

Interior design, QUATTRO, Tiptronic, Exterior/Interior Design


Worst Features

More Torque out of the 1.8T model. Radio Controls on Steering Wheel
