    i almost bought an A4 instead of the car i have now. the car was so fun to drive but the amount of electrical components scared me (more stuff=more that can go wrong). i took it my mechanic and he pretty much told me that buying this car was going to be a very, very expensive move. the prices for parts are through the roof and apparently they tend to have quite a few problems. one thing to consider about luxury cars is that they are made for people with a fair amount of money. the $300 to $400 a month may not seem that bad but take into account the cost of part and upkeep and you can break yourself quickly. ive always found that going for the top of the line "average" car (jetta, accord, etc.) is the way to go. you still get lots of goodies without the $100 oil changes.

    Yeah. Overall Audi's are good cars, but if shit fucks up you better have an arsenal of 100 dollar bills.

    i think audis are cute, and i thought they were good cars til i was talking to some guy. two of his friends bought new ones, and, literally, around 20 things on at least one of the new cars broke in the first year, but luckily it was all under warranty still.

    Ive never heard of the S6. The S4 is a fine car. Audi and Volkswagen are owned by the same people. Volkswagen. Jetta and Audi. A4 are almost the same car. Inside and out. VW parts are expensive and the labor is Outrageous. I expect Audi would cost more. Althought, some parts may interchange making this cheaper for you. I would probably have my Audi serviced at a VW dealership. I almost want to get a job as a porter. Paid training and a valuable skill. Learn to fix cars myself.... parts for cost discount labor. Is it just me or does Heiniken suck? Aquired taste?

    someone was telling me that heiniken deliberatley skunks their beer before shipping to the states. apparently that what "we" like...party stories aside, the fact remains that heiniken does in fact suck. another fact is that i drink it often and i dont know why.

    Audi's are dope cars, especially the S series, but they are not cheap to fix. I think it'd be safer to get the Maxima, but the Audi would get you more tail.

    They are pretty good cars, engines are very reliable as long as t you treat them right and its not hard to work on them yourself (jap cars are a nightmare)....... best thing to do is get a hook up in europe to send you parts... although as the guy previously said they are the same as a vw

    is it quatro?

    if your choice is between an audi and a maxima, the fact that you even have to consider a maxima gives you your answer.
    audi's are good cars but anything ten years old is going to start having issues, which are going to cost money.
    get the maxima.
