I have owned the cabriolet for a month now and I must say that it has far surpassed my expectations. The inside of the cabin is just beautiful. The car gets long glances all the time - on the highway, in parking lots, etc. Once you tune the sound system properly, it sounds amazing (the subpar sound had me worried for a while). Power is superb and visibility is not that bad for a Cab. Mileage can be poor if your foot is made of lead, but easy acceleration brings it back to average. But where's the fun in that!!!
Sometimes I believe my S4 leaves the road and soars through the air! It glides around corners, stops on a dime and is always willing to go faster than I am. It is beautiful and I still get excited everytime I slip in behind the wheel. Taking the top down on the freeway is wonderful. Sometimes I feel guilty about the as milage...but, well, what can I say, I'm in LOVE!
Simply a joy to own and to drive. Handles every bit as well as the 2001 TT it replaced, and has 2.5 times the raw power. Wife's MB-CLK430 not built as well nor does it have the smooth power delivery. The S4 out corners and out powers it in head to head spirited driving.
Amazing looks, performance, comfort,
safety, room for 4 real people, top-
down fun and .... all-wheel drive! The
6 spd. stick is precise with crisp,
short throws. Keeping engine rpms
below 4500 in this break-in period, but
there is a ton of torque on hand in any
gear! Can't wait to "air it out".
Ordered the car back in January and
took delivery *exactly* when expected.
The Light Silver Alcantra interior is
rich and luxurious and contrasts
against the Black trim beautifully.
Chose the optional Carbon-Fiber trim
rather than the dark brown walnut.
Ordered mine Moro (dark) Blue with
matching Blue top. Car feels *very*
solid, hugging the road.
This car is quick off the line with
true appeal on turns. The SMG paddle
shifters give the control of a stick
without the annoyance of a clutch in
traffic. Stereo is clear, seats are so
comfortable. This thing is just great
in turns and loves to jump off the line.
I had a 1999 Corvette and I like this
more - can't believe I'm saying this.
Mine- brilliant red with silver/wood
