What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Well, neighbour had an A6 allroad and girlfriend has an A4 cabrio - so they all like it..

Never driving anything but an Audi quattro, ever again. The combination of interior quality, practicality and driving enjoyment, for me, makes this the one car that does everything.

When finances and depreciation permit I'll be getting the post '06 2 litre 170ps diesel A4 quattro.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Fantastic! Best handling car I've ever owned (including an MX-5). With the 1.9 engine it feels a little underpowered, but that says as much about how much more power the chassis could put on the road as the engine itself. The 1.9 Diesel isn't the quietest around, but it has smooth power delivery and oodles of torque.

What's it like to park?
For me, a doddle, with nice light steering - but then, it is shorter than my previous Passat estate and two Mondeos before that..

Have you had any problems with the car?
A parking sensor's gone and the warning beep in reverse is really annoying!

What's most practical about your car?
Bootspace acually more practical than I'd expected for my two dogs. With seats forward, built in dog/load guard slots in behind drivers seat.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Cruise control is great for the commute, AWD very reassuring.
