    Well looking on the site there are a few more Audi owners cropping up, I have recently just purchased an Audi and can say it is a fantastic car to drive!

    My car is a 2.0 140 S-Line
    Multitronic Gearbox

    I just love the laid back drive of the auto, this is my first automatic and love it! I know not the most exciting engines but does me just fine and a remap can easily achieve 185bhp.

    I just love the look on the outside and just the simple yet well screwed together interior.

    Coming from a Grande Punto Sporting this is deffo a massive step up in luxury.

    There are many other fantastic cars on this forum so lets see them guys!!

    Keep eying up A3 2.0 TSFI Sport Backs but out of my price range at the mo and not sure about the oil usage on the particular engine

    I think everyone knows about my 2008 2.0TFSI A6 Avant S Line.

    Added a few retrofits to it, namely AMI and PDC with graphical display.

    Adding the DRLs this weekend.

    Interesting to see how you get on with the DRL's, been looking at them for mine but not quite sure on them yet.

    Get some pics up of yours anyway :)

    I've got a bright red 2005 A3 2.0T DSG. Nice and laid back in D, nets me 40mpg on my commute if I take it easy. Much more lively when using the paddles :)

    Doesn't use a drop of oil either Relentless81.

    current proud owner (well actually company car) of a black A6 2.0 TDI Saloon and looking forward to a new A6 Estate 2.0 TDI S-Line Multitronic arriving in September.
    My current A6 has done now 120K miles in 4 years and is still going strong, overall build quality is excellent. Looking forward though to have to the Multitronic gearbox again.

    Are you surprised at how much you like it?

    Owning this Audi I can see how they say the steering is really numb, however for a car to get me to and from work, go for nice drives out and a car that imo looks fantastic...I love it!!

    totally surprised I bought it as an underdog replacement for my m3 and it's so much better in nearly every respect, very underrated car imo

    An A6 is also in my sights. Plenty of car for the money. It's pretty massive, loads of toys and a pleasant cabin to waft to work in.

    Don't fit LED DRL's, they were never available on your shape A4 and fitting them will just look naff. Paradigm can get away with it because the later A6's had them.

    Fair point. Been looking at them and was undecided, but the money for them could go to retrofit ipod adapter or something :)

    I like mine apart from the suspension which I find a little... firm. Sometimes if I shut my eyes I think I still own my Supra.

    Great colour you got. The B7 A4 is a cracking car, imo.

    The B7 DRLs look cheap and nasty in the flesh. Avoid!
