Summary:

Awesome power in a comfortable ride

Faults:

Replaced lambda sensor

Replaced Diverter Valve (DV)

Replaced Sparkplugs (Bosch F5DPOR)

Replaced all vacuum- and turbo hoses.

General Comments:

This is an awesome machine. it's very quick, is very comfortable and quattro gives the car brilliant handling- in wet or dry! it brings a grin to your face every time you put your pedal to the metal and feel the turbo boosting at full boost.

It needs quite a lot of maintenance though. the parts are quite expensive to replace (if done at Audi dealers, but there are ways around this).

It's fuel consumption is exceptionally high. I get about 15 liters/100 km (16 mpg) on average.

The brakes are useless, especially for the type of car that it is (upgrade to the Porsche RS2 kit - much better) and so are the lights. it only lights the road straight ahead and nothing after that, so many a time things catch you by surprise. (next to replace are lights with a xenon fitment, which uses less power than the standard halogen ones)

This car is totally amazing. it has all the creature comforts like airconditioning, power steering, electric windows and mirrors and leather seats and its got nice carbon fibre trim on the dash.

It has got a lot of power and still kills most modern fast cars - even though it's 10 years old now!

I picked one of the 1995 S2 coupes up in Melbourne in 2002, and have since added the Wetterauer chip, Forge divertor valve, high flow air filter, and a heavier anti-sway bar - all for under $AU 2000.00. It now puts out 206Kw instead of 169Kw.

When the brake rotors needed replacing I went with the EBC rotors and green Kevlar pads, rather than go to the expense of the RS2 kit. The rear shockers now need replacing so I plan to do all four with Koni adjustables and replace all the bushes while the job is being done.

I have really enjoyed this car and plan to keep it. I have had 3 Porsche in the past - 911, 930, 968CS - and while I think they cornered better in the dry, the S2 has the edge in the wet, and the advantage of not attracting as much attention.

It has been the most reliable car I have owned.

Summary:

A one to keep - it fits me like a glove

Faults:

Ignition switch replaced.

When I first got the car, I replaced radiator, water pump, thermostat and hoses as precautionary measure, as well as all filters, fluids and other consumables. It was also due for a timing belt change so that was done as well. New Pirellis and a killer stereo with an active sub completed the package.

General Comments:

At 75000 miles the engine feels fresh and smooth and burns no oil. The auto box is flawless, especially in the "sport" mode.

Paintwork still looks good, although the bright red color is starting to fade a little in places. Still looks great though!

This car is more of a fast cruiser than an all-out sports car, which suits me just fine. Ride is comfortable and not too much body roll. Seats are fine, but it could do with adjustable stearing column.

This car has a timeless, classic, understated look and the top notch Audi construction quality is evident.

Summary:

I highly recommend this car

Faults:

The right electrical window is having problems.

The car is a little bit noisy when facing windy days, due to friction noises.

General Comments:

I love this car. The external look is really nice, mainly the side view.

For a family of four, it has enough room and allows long distance trips or skiing week-ends.

Summary:

The S2 is a race car with a road car mask

Faults:

Fuel consumption isn't good. The suspension is very delicate, specially on the Caracas ways. It's turns uncomfortable in the traffic just for those hard seats.

General Comments:

The S2 is my first "race" car, excellent performance, perfect engine, perfect noise, etc. It has a wonderful steering, and the great stability of a Ferrari. It's very difficult put in danger the stability of the car. At 210kph (130mph) the car goes quietly without pression on the foot or engine.
