- Absolutely beautiful front, back and side. Can be driven daily and park easily
- Exotic looks but no exotic performance. Need more power! Get the 10cyl
I have owned many exotics and this car is like a good mix of 75% Audi and 25% Ferarri. Although it is very easy to drive daily, its looks attract the likes of Porsche Turbos and F430's who are just itching to whip the "Super Bowl Commercial" car! I've owned an F430 and there is NO contest (the 430 would KILL it) except for one point...... The Audi was $130,000 cheaper. I also own a Murcielago LP640 and there is one other HUGE difference in these exotics and the Audi. THE PADDLE SHIFTERS. For some weird reason Audi took the mercedes approach and they mounted the shifters to the steering wheel (instead of the column like the 430 and the Murci), forcing the driver to think fast when shifting in a turn. The other cars have mounted their shifters to the column so they are stationary. Considering the fact that Audi owns Lambo, I think they will fix this issue soon. The Audi is NOT a Lambo or Ferarri but the fact that I have compared them should tell you something. GREAT CAR!!!...read morehide

- Great interior, good looking side and rear profile, smooth engine, good materials and build
- Overpriced, underpowered, reliability has been so so, trans problems, not a green car
Overall, I get a lot of compliements on the look and I do like this car. Thats the reason I bought it. But after 6 months of owning it I find its more work to own than fun to drive.
I find the price I paid was really absurd now that I think about it. I was prepared to spend $90k but went over the limit by another 10k.
Performance wise its not that great for $100k. I raced a Z06 and Mustang GT500 and they literally smoked me. Opps. I was embarrased.
The front end is a let down. It drags the curbs and looks like a droppy chin. The rest is a nice design. The interior is great. The engine is smooth but just lacks the punch I was expecting.
Reliability is lacking. Its been in the shop already 3 times in 6 months. One time, it didnt start. Another time the trans wouldn't shift out of 2nd. No neutral, no reverse. Replaced under warranty. The engine light came on one time while driving. I left it for a few weeks until I had time to fix it.
You live and learn. I leaned never to get an Audi....read morehide

- Performance rocks, slings around corners and chicks dig it
- it is an audi
car handles great on the freeway and around winding roads. lacks a little on creature comforts. little pricey for an audi but it isn't something you see all the time on the roads.

- It speaks 4 itself just look at the beauty it has.
- I can't wait tell the V10 comes out!!!!
I'm a true fan and owner of an Audi myself (A4-Quattro 3.0) the car's are best in the lux market hands down and they (Audi) don't nickel and dime U 4 extra on the car like it's so called better auto makers BMW and M.Benz.
Try one 4 yourself and the quattro is the best one 2 drive. my personal opinion. Also Yahoo did a report on Audi as the safest car on the road. HUUUMMMMMM!!!! NICE!!!
