I was searching for a Audi A4 with a manual transmission which are becoming harder to find. A coworker recommended North Bay Imports. I was a little nervous since I always bought new or certified from an Audi dealer. I may never buy a car any where else again and HIGHLY recommend them. The car was perfect and delivered with new tires and brakes all around. Financing was easy and the rate very competitive. Their selection is impressive and of very high quality. Everyone I dealt with was professional and friendly. The fixed price policy bothered me at first and I tried to negotiate but Jon held firm on his price. After seeing the car and the delivered condition I fully understand his price and I feel I got a lot of car for the money.

My new (to me) certified preowned Audi S4 is everything I wanted in my new car. It is stylish, comfortable and well worth the price. I love it!
I purchased my car from North Bay Imports in December of 2017. I was looking for a ML 350 and they had the best selection and price by far of anywhere near or far. Their sales staff is very low key and not at all pushy - but also very helpful if you need it.
I have owned the car for over a year now. The car was in pristine condition when I purchased it and I have had no issues whatsoever with the car. I absolutely love it and would definitely buy one again.
I have brought it into service (oil changes, rotors) and Chris from service is a pleasure to work with. Very accommodating. They redid their customer waiting area so there is plenty of space for customers to wait in a comfortable area.
I can't speak more highly of my experience with North Bay. I will absolutely buy a car from them again!
The car is so powerful and elegant.

This car is so much fun to drive and has so many features. It eve tells me when I have to charge my phone. The seats massage and cuddle me and my passenger.
On 1/27 We went to North Bay looking to upgrade from our 2009-A-4
Salesperson Meghan was great, knowledgeable and friendly. Amazingly there was no hard sell. We selected the veh. we wanted and Meghan told us that this would be the worst the veh. would appear. We picked up our A-6 on 1/30 and we're quite surprised to see new tires,brake job,mats and oil change on the veh. Are you kidding me!! We would have bought the veh. as is. Was I ever surprised. Did I mention the wax job!! I know these cars aren't cheap. But what a great car and great service. If you want to buy a luxury veh. go see Meghan @ North Bay and you not be disappointed//////////////
A sleeper that's a blast to drive.

This car is incredible with all of the technology and features. One minute you can be in comfort and drive just cruising along and then with a push of one or two buttons you can be in dynamic and sport mode utilizing launch control and blow away most of the cars you come up against.
Audi pre-sense is Incredible 2 cars ran a red light and I didn't even notice it as I had just slowly started to turn left at my green light. It was starting to happen and the car instantly tightened up the seat belt and slammed on the brakes, truly impressive.
If you're considering buying this car I would definitely recommend pulling the trigger is a purchase you will never regret.
I don’t typically write reviews (good or bad) so if you are reading this then you know the experience was over the top.
When it comes to spending my money, I look for quality, service and personality of the person(s) I’m dealing with. I have to say Jon, Derek and staff have my 5 stars. I traveled 2 hours to North Bay after dealing with my local Audi dealer for a long period of time to no avail. I knew what I wanted before I arrived; model, color and price. Traveling with my wife, son and two large pit bulls, our arrival was greeted by Jon and the car ready to be test driven. The dogs were given a warm welcome with the run of the place. With that said the black Audi Q5 wasn’t what my son and wife wanted. At that point Jon was put thru the test. The hunt for the car was on and Jon was with us every step of the way. We must have looked at 10 different cars. I thought for sure Jon was going to get upset with us. His disposition didn’t change from the time we arrived to the time we left.
We finally agreed on a white Q5. The buying process was easy. The price you see is the price you pay NO bargaining. I tried unsuccessfully. He gave me what I wanted for a trade so I was happy with that.
With that and a small deposit I was a new car owner. They do offer financing but it was easier doing that at my home town bank. Two days later I drove back and picked up the car. I spent 10 minutes to sign papers with Dave the finance person. Dave showed me the different extended warranties but did not push any of them.
I have to say it took me longer to register the car than to purchase it..
Thanks everyone for a great experience!
Fun Car to Drive

My all black Audi S4 with red leather seats is a BLAST to drive, handles incredibly, brakes admirably and has ALL OF THE SAFETY FEATURES TO KEEP ME UPRIGHT.
I just love this car!
Just got my used 2012 S4 with auto and 66,500 miles on it. The car had 2 previous owners and looked as close to just off the showroom floor as could be. After 2 months I’m loving it.
I read a lot of reviews by owners before getting it because I don’t have deep pockets and I knew Audi’s can be expensive when they break. I was amazed to hear that reliability had not been an issue, so I rolled the dice and got mine.
I really can’t think of any other car that for the price (got mine for under 21k) that comes close to having the looks and performance it has. 0-60 5 secs stock. With a simple stage 1 program and no other mods to engine you can get another 100 hp and 80+ lbs of torque and drop the 0-60 closer to 4 secs. And it stops just as quick.
The leather and suede sport seats look great and hug you in the twist and turns. Haven’t taken a long drive yet so can’t comment on long drive comfort, but they’ve been comfortable for me so far.
I have the premium which doesn’t have the adjustable suspension. It handles great, little to no roll in the turns at speed. On the firm side of course, but not painful. It sits high enough that that it doesn’t bottom out easily and front end clears most parking curbs.
I really wanted a manual, which I haven’t had for years, but already realizing I’m better off with the auto. I can drive 1 handed if needed (if I’m drinking or snacking). This is my first paddle car which is almost as fun as a manual. Shifts are pretty quick with the paddles. I do notice occasionally a slight lag, but not often. Down side is if it lags or I miss the shift at redline the limiter kicks in and after that the limiter starts automatically shifting at 4K.
You can fit 4 adults comfortably in car. I’ve had my wife and her friend in back and they said they were comfortable. My wife’s on smaller side at 504 her friend tho is about 508. Oh. I’m 604 180 and have plenty of legroom in front and even jumped in back and felt there was legroom for me with front seats about halfway up. I also like that backseat seat backs fold near flat so you can extend your trunk space into backseat.
I’m a little disappointed with gas mileage at the moment. I’m getting 18 mpg. I drive on average 60 miles a day split between freeway and streets. I do play some but not enough that it should be drastically reducing the mileage. I plan on putting new plugs and points in soon just because I’m not sure if they’ve been since new.
Last but definately not least. This thing is fast. Put your right foot down and the awd rockets the speedo clockwise at warp speed. Even cruising at 80 if you put your foot down you’ll be triple digits in the blink of an eye.
Just to be clear I’m not partial to any maker. I like many of the models from all high end auto makers. But seeing as I do not have those deep pockets the S4 was my best option, and I have to say even if money wasn’t an issue, I’d still get the S4. After having it just these 2 months I am impressed with its performance. I already liked its styling/look.
