2.0 tfsi quattro 1 week on...
1 week on and 900 miles later I am very impressed with the car. Just returned from a 600 mile round trip on M ways, A and B roads from Leeds to north east Scotland and back in two days.
The car holds the road like no other I've owned - including a Mk1 TT and Mazda MX5. The power delivery is smooth and linear once you get past 2500 rpm and this makes over taking a breeze - especially useful behind HGVs on the A66 in atrocious weather coming back last night. The Xenons were superb.
The car is silent at 90mph and I got a very surprising 37mpg overall.
My only gripe is that the offset pedals and cramped space around them makes for a slightly uncomfortable drive. There just isn't enough room around the accelerator for my size 9s. I think I've got the seat position sorted now but daren't move it!
Cant imagine that the S4 is that much better (:whistle2:) Overall I'm very pleased indeed!! Great family car but also brilliant in the twisties when you want to have a bit of fun too!!
