Great styling, great engine. Comfortable drive even with the S-Line styling. I changed to the A4 from the A5 Coupe to allow for changes in family circumstances a few months back. The car happily takes 2 adults, 2 children in car seats, a buggy and 2 dogs in the spacious boot. I like the automatic tailgate! My only issue with this car is the squeaky key hold in the dash... over the past month this has gradually gotten worse, will be contacting Audi soon. MPG currently at 40.3 however as there's only 3,000 miles on the clock I'm hoping this will improve to closer to the stated 50mpg.

Its not cheap on parts and servicing because its an Audi but then because its so reliable and benefits from longlife servicing (18000 mile intervals) it shouldnt need that much spent on parts and servicing.

Exemplary - in 20 months and 47,000 miles nothing has gone wrong.
Running Cost

Positives are the long life service means it only gets serviced every 19,000 miles, and the fuel consumption. Tyres are very expensive, and with hindsight, are too big/over specified for the car. Also the tyres are a high performance tyre with very few lateral sipes for grip[ in snow, so despite buying a Quattro, I ended up having to buy winter tyres as well.

Cannot fault this car - performance is great, styling is fantastic, space for the family, great inside and out. Economy and Running Costs are reasonable. You don't buy a 177 Black Edition unless you are going to use your right foot a little harder or expect to pay the higher end of the price scale.

Fuel costs what it costs. Servicing has been expensive at my Audi Dealership. The car has 18 inch wheels so tyres are very expensive.

Had to blank the EGR valve and change the solenoid for the turbo when first bought. Other than general wear and tear (a handbrake cable common for the age) it has been very reliable for the mileage I've covered in it.

The tank costs Ł80 in currant climate to fill but will achieve an average 50mpg on motorways and 40mpg around town.

45 mpg is good for a 170 bhp car which does town and commuter driving. Parts can be dear, but aren't they for all cars?

overall fuel consumption matches urban cycle value. However, tyres performing well: new rear tyres at 31000 miles, still on original front tyres at 38000 miles.

Fuel is OK for a 10 year old car. I avoid servicing by the main dealer as a) their labour rate is crippling b) they always find lots of things that need changing that could be ignored. Spare parts are expensive

It's not cheap to run this car. The cost of diesel has gone up since I bought it. It costs about Ł300 for a service and tyres are really expensive...I bought a set of winter tyres last year which cost me Ł850
