No one else is allowed to speak........... damn you all. SHUT UP......... Audi's rule !!
Some Audi's suck........ just like some BMW's and all KIA's. Then again, that pile of suck story can often be attributed to the owner(s) being fukin' morons and not taking care of their vehicles properly.............. if at all. It's amazing the number of people that bitch vehicles out as being garbage ......... but when you dig deep to find out how they actually take care of them......... then you understand why.
With many S4 owners I know or have run into, it's all gun it and run it cause it's expected to be a fast/quick ride, but rarely do these tools understand the flip side about maintenance, cool down periods on the turbos ad all the other aspects to running a car like that hard. Everyone just becomes a hero in an S4. So no wonder S4's become a piles of hurt or just die.
With new cars these days, so many people just don't give a shit either. They drive the crap out of their cars and then flip them before warrantee is up............. with very little or no maintenance being done.
Think about that "attitude". Scares the shit out of me now to buy a used car
So that said, while some may be knowledgable and actually maintain the beast, if they bought something used that was put away hot and wet every day while under warrantee cause the owner didn't give a shit, the car is done before they even got it. It's not the cars fault.
