You would have to spend a lot more to get this level of build quality and refinement with other manufacturers.
fuel consumption 30/ 35+ Mpg on Motorway, servicing costs reasonable.
On the road
A pleasure to drive. Fast, smooth and refined. Triple layer hood gives excellent protection from wind noise/ elements.
20V engine smooth and flexible, needs revs for more rapid acceleration.
Living with it
Classy, refined, elegant. Still looks good, even next to new A4 Cabriolet successor. nothing beats it on style for anywhere near the same money.
Superb ride quality leaves you wondering if it's attached to the ground by wheels. Cruises beautifully at 70-90, top up or down. Cossetting leather interior with Audi Concert stereo makes long journeys comfortable and enjoyable.
Security and Service
Audi Alarm/ Immobiliser, not had any cause to need it. Boot has deadlock for extra protection of valuables.
Portsmouth Audi - Excellent Service, real Audi enthusiasts.... West London Audi, appalling service, Avoid.
Problems and Ownership
1.8 20V engine feels like it should last forever, Power steering pump replaced.
Fuel gauge has never worked. Use trip meter as fuel gauge.

Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
