2004 Audi S4 quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6M)


Test drove several Mercedes, owned two
BMWs, this car is about the perfect
balance for me. I prefer the more
immediate steering feel of a BMW,
however Audi has done a great job with
the steering in this car. (All wheel
drive prevents it being any better.) I
also perfer rear wheel drive, but this
car doesn't have the obnoxious front
wheel drive feel most AWD cars provide.
The power is great fun, the ride
exceptional given the performance
envelope of the car. I can't find fault
with the interior, & actually love the
stealthy exterior. A BMW M3 may be
quicker, but not by much, and the
ride is much worse. Don't buy a
performance sedan without test driving
an S4.

Best Features

Power, handling, supple ride for the little monster it is. Very nicely balanced road car.

Worst Features

Wider gear ratio's to allow better mileage would help. I never use all six unless I'm really hooking it in the mountains. The arm rest isn't vertically adjustable. It should be. I did get spoiled by a heated steering wheel in a BMW 740, That would be a nice addition here.
