"The car is irreplaceable as Audi seems to have forgotten their roots and no longer offers a cab with a manual transmission. Mileage is poor, 14 MPG combined, but that might be a function of how I drive the car. It is hard to imagine a car that is more fun to drive. Even with the top up, the exhaust note is like music. Admittedly, it doesn't handle quite as well as my old 3 series cabs, but nothing handles like a 3 series."

"Had owned (4) Audi quattros prior to this 2007 S4. Cannot be happier. V8 growl and power. Excellent handling, braking and Audi's superior interiors. Cannot see a reason to get a new car now. I love my car. Dealer keeps prodding me to trade up. All of my previous Audi trades were purchased by dealer employees because they knew the care I had taken of them. They are NOT getting this one."

Ask this car to do anything, and it will.

"Fast. Smooth. Comfortable. Drop dead gorgeous looks. People still ask what kind of car it is and where can they buy one, even though this is an 8 year old car. Congrats to Audi for making this model sing with beauty...in perfect harmony to the sweet sounds of that incredible aluminum V8. Just nothing like it."

"I have had my 2008 S4 for just over a year now and its been great. No issues with the car at all. I have put just over 10,000 miles on it these past 15 months and other than two oil changes, it hasnt seen service. I thoroughly enjoy driving it and am taking it to the track at Mid Ohio in a month. As a daily driver, it is fun as it is comfortable. I have the manual and love driving it but I also live in a small town so I dont have to sit in much traffic. Great car if you need four doors and yet want performance. Watch the back seat room if you are tall however as it is a two seater if the front seats are all the way back, or even close. As a VW Passat owner, this was a great car to move to for improved performance."

"Cab, Black, 6 Manual, Great stereo, Sat Radio. Beast of a vehicle. Dangerously fast, excellent cornering and road response, extremely stable at high speeds, Poor right rear visibility, avgerages 14-15mpg country driving 19-20 highway(but that's with a lot of pedal), tires take a lot of wear in country road driving, top goes down in 30 secs, acceleration from 65 to 95 is like most cars at 25 to 40. wipers are a little weak on the rain, highly recommend Rain-X for added visiblity. Very annoying get caught behind slow drivers... Not many other cars gives you: V8/6 Manual/AWD/CONVERTIBLE/ all in one package!!"

Makes ya feel special

"My '06 S4 Cabriolet is by far absolutely the best car I have ever owned. She is beautiful and responsive like a lady should be and yet she is powerful and sure footed like the purebred she obviously is. With her 340 HP V8 coupled to the superlative quattro AWD system she handles like a dream. The convertible top goes down in a breeze. With all the options and the Nav/Bose combination and leather seating she's like coming home on a beautiful day. I Love this car"
