2001 Audi RS4 2.7 turbo


Awesome all round car - ticks all the boxes so well!


Nothing! Been absolutely mint!

General Comments:

Great performance with 380 HP. Gearbox is a little agricultural - and the clutch possibly a little heavy - but that is fine by me (considering the power going through). Grips pretty well, although I have not pushed it. I would think it probably will under-steer a little if pushed hard. Traction control is quite intrusive under 60kph. Does have some turbo lag, and not much grunt low down; it's quite sluggish if you are in the wrong gear. Acceleration at speed is very good, such as when overtaking (it's a little scary the first few times when looking down at the speedo!!).

Looks great, comfortable inside, just a great place to be in!

Have been quite surprised by the economy considering the performance (~10.7L/100km since I have had it), and I don't drive like a Nana. Very good on the open road, but a little hard work in heavy traffic.

Was pretty disappointed with the first service I took it in for at the dealer. More the service I got and the mess they left in the car than the cost (the cost was less than I expected).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
