2005 Audi A4 Convertible 3.0 quattro AWD 2dr Cabriolet (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Have had any number of converts over the years, and have two other Audis currently (2004 All Road and 2005 A6 4.2) this is the one that I can't wait to get into.....even on a really cold day, as long as it's not snowing (I live in New Mexico). The stability of the 4xdrive and the 3.0 make is a total blast to hit the high road. I can even get 4 people in it. Can't wait for real summer! Just buy one!!!
Ease of taking top down, maneuverability, looks...comfort...blah blah blah, read above....
All Audis should be standard equipped with the backup thing!!!!! C'mon guys! especially in this little convertible.
After examining all of the top marquees the Audi A4 was the big winner for topless driving. IMHO it represents the best performance, style, quality, and value for topless luxury/performance driving in the four- seat category. And our dealer treated us like royalty when others thought the A4 1.8T price level was not worth their effort. If you are considering topless driving give the A4 a serious look. Test with & w/o sport suspension. Not for everyone but great for me. Love the handling, lighting, interior, and wonderful aesthetics. Top is awesome and down 90% of the time.
Sports package, lighting package, leather interior, fantastic seats, awesome top, and excellent stereo with CD & cassette. Performance and fuel economy in one head-turning package.
This car needs better brakes. The sports package has larger wheels and could use larger rotors with ease. If you really stand on the brakes they work fine but better/larger brakes with faster recovery would be nice. A better cup holder arrangement is needed. Maybe pop-up like the MB.
The car is as fun to drive today as it was in Nov 02 when I purchased the car. I took a chance with a new model but it has worked out well. The cabin is a driver's cabin, and with all the safety features I feel safe even with the top down cruising on challenging roads. As other reviewers have noted the ride is choppy going over speed bumps at slow speeds but other than that the car does not disappoint and provides me with an excellent experience.
Memory for seat and mirror position, convertible top w/boot, Bose stereo, Interior fit and finish, luxurious, effortless power
Have had my newest love for two months and 4,000 miles. Single touch up/down top with glass back window and a covered boot is superior. Stock sound system is as good as BMW's Harmon Kardon. This is a sloooow car. Replaced my 2002 Honda S2000 which was fast but a bit hard on the body. Compares more than favorably to my 1999 323 BMW convertible with one exception.
