Pros I don't own the car, but wouldn't give an A4 1 a really negative review based on a story that shows no evidence of ownership. I would rather be honest and simply state that it's a wonderful car! I am basing my rating on the qualities of my friend's 2007 A
Cons None, assuming you can afford the price of admission!
Summary Read the reviews from people who actually write something that shows they've actually been within 100 feet of the car, let alone driven it.
Pros Say "Enter Destination", then say "POI", and then it takes you through the same process of doing it manuallying using the MMI knob.
Cons None. It's fine.
Summary Don't believe everything you read on the internet! ;)
Pros Quattro is incredible in rain and snow, sporty look
Cons Very chopping automatic transmission (Tiptronic 8), high maintenance (interior looks nice but not made of materials that resist wear or dirt well), Turbo requires Premium gasoline only from Audi recommended gas stations (hard to find gas when you need it)
Summary I have the A4 Premium and I don't know what car Brian was driving by mine is a little different. First of all the iPod/iPhone connector is in a different place in my 2011 vehicle and looks much nicer with a tray and hidden connector. Brian said the scrolling was responsive, but it's not, I often get "Data position 51" instead of the song name and it takes a little time for the song name to fill in. As I mentioned it's a high maintenance car, requires a lot of cleaning a lot of the time and special gasoline. Also, like most luxury cars these days it uses water based paint and a clear coat - while this looks really nice it does not hold up well to things like bird droppings (which have stained the paint beyond repair - my wife's Ford Explorer also has bird droppings but they don't stain the paint). Lastly, I'm disappointed in the hands free - you would think a $45,000 car would have the ability to allow you to use the phones voice commands, but it doesn't you're stuck using the cars voice commands (which means you manually have to program all your contact information in to the car - if it fits in the cars' memory). Lastly, you would also think a $45,000 car with an iPhone interface would also include an AUX-IN, but it doesn't it's either the iPhone or AUX not both like my prior <$30,000 Dodge Caravan was able to offer. It's an ok car but by far not worth the price. BTW, Brian failed to mention that BMWcare includes all maintenance and AuidCare is only oil changes.Since my last review I've owned the car for nearly a year and have found a few other issues. The engine burns oil like a stove. I've had to add 2 quarts of oil between changes. According to the Audi forum this is the number one complaint about the A4. I spent a lot of money for the all-weather mats and in less than 12K miles the driver's side mat got a hole because it was so flimsy. Lastly, I found that the A4 (even though its Audi's low end model thats more expensive than the mid-range models from other luxury brands) is Audi's bastard step-child. In fact, when I complained to the dealer about the problems he flat out told me "what do you expect, it's an A4." Audi Customer Care was no better, they said that their higher end lines (A5, A6, A8) are designed completely with the customer in mind and that I should consider them when it's time to get my next car. So, does that mean the A4 was designed as a throwaway? In my opinion the A4 is an overpriced, under equipped, piece of junk.

Pros Style wow, love my titanium package, such a head turner. 6 spd stick is so smooth. Quattro!!! very roomy up front. gas millage. very quick. Specially in these winter months. Fit and finish. trunk space. black piano key inserts. trunk space for size.
Cons Bang and Olefsen sound is good but I had hoped for more. They got rid of free oil changes since i bought my last Audi.
Summary This is my third audi another A4 and a S4. I have Also had a BMW 330xi and Acura TL type S. Each auto brings different strengths and weaknesses to the table but since my first Audi in 2000 they have narrowed the gap between themselves and BMW. I was planning on getting a new one but had to take a look at the titanium package A4 and well I never looked back. Loved my Acura Honda builds great product no matter what it is but doesn't compare to the germans when it comes to that extra zing. I drive a Honda Ridgeline for my truck so deffiantly no bias there. As well as Used to have a MDX.
If what your looking for is a classy well rounded sporty all year around car that will add a smile to your face. The A4 will do that for your and mace some neighbors and co workers a bit jealous as well. *)
