Nicely designed, comfortable, fast and predictable with the AWD drivetrain. Cupholders should be expected for this price. All is lost, however, on the failure of key mechanicals -- broken cam follower ($3K) and no reverse ($8K) on a car that has been babied and dealer serviced since new. Transmission fluid change? $500! Sunroof sticks open -- a plague since it was new. Deutschland electricals lag the metal-bending skills.

I bought this superb looking very fast beast with 57k miles on the clock. It was a smooth as silk and at first a lovely car. Within the next 40k miles over 2.5 years, it has needed a new engine management system, a new fuel pump (apparently vulnerable), brake sensors, and a reconditioned gear box (apparently vulnerable on the 4.2 quattro and generally not Audi's forte). It is currently in the garage with another fuel pump problem. Additionally, there appear to be few independent Audi garages around who are confident of tackling such a big car. The main dealer prices for parts and labor are eye watering. A car for those with courage and deep pockets.
