Okay, so this review may be a bit biased. I've had my Audi A4 for a few months now and the smile has yet to leave my face. I truly love this car. That being said, let me get all of the negatives out of the way now. Negatives: The center console compartment has a less than durable latch on it. The material that coats the plastic wears off and the latch is easily broken. The plastic cover for the front dome interior lights doesn't fit tight enough and rattles. A small amount of insulation or a small piece of silicone could fix that problem. Two ashtrays? Not exactly necessary. Space to the right of the gas pedal is small and this makes it feel a little cramped against my right leg. Acceleration from a dead stop suffers from a huge amount of lag. Low-speed driving is jerky. The transmission seems to shift oddly. And now the positives: Sport-mode is fantastic! Drop the shifter into 'S' and hit the pedal. Then try to stop smiling. Overall performance is great. This car is very fun to drive and very hard to drive conservatively. The handling is something to be appreciated. Get this car over 90mph and feel how connected the steering feels. Interior finish is extraordinary. The quality of everything from the doors to the tactile feedback of the buttons on the cd player remind you that thought went into all aspects of this vehicle. I especially like the thumb scroll buttons on the steering wheel. I don't need to say it, but I will. The style and general design of this car is breathtaking. The lines are subtle, refined, and just plain stunning. An understated strength and aggressive stance make this car look powerful and elegant without having to resort to ostentatious features. To sum up, there are some extremely minor negative issues which are far outweighed by the vast number of positives for the A4. I never cared this much about a car before and I couldn't be happier. This purchase was a great decision and I am sure I will be buying Audi from here on out.
The car runs and drives like new and gets 30 mpg. The turbo charged 2.0 is vry responsive but the interior is small. I bought the car at night and did not notice the black paint to be in bad shape. Lots of scratches and swirl marks that needed to be buffed and compunded. Inside the car was very dirty-not really well maintained. After I cleaned it up the car was very nice.
This is my second Audi. The Audi 4 has just as much preformance as the BMW 325 but at a much better value. I've had BMW in the past but the Audi is now my preffered car.
