I don't consider the A4 to be a high performance vehicle. I consider it to be a nice, but mundane family sedan. The A4 Quattro has exactly the same HP/Torque/0-60 as the Honda Accord 2.0. Is the...

The Audi A4 owner's manual says "you can run 87 octane, however it will have slightly less performance." It doesn't say anything about possible engine damage using 87 octane.

I was offered a new A4 Quattro with $50.5K MSRP for $42K with no negotiation on my part. It was not the color combo I wanted. It's not a $50K car.

It's not a $50K car. It was a $36K car when I purchased it with 4200 miles and now according to KBB it's a $28K car. That's because Audi's resale value plummet into a giant smoking crater. I was...

Around here premium is $0.60-$0.70 more than regular. Which works out to about $500/yr for me. There are no Costcos convenient for me, but I stop at Sams Club frequently for gas.

Going forward I...

Short term MPG does not appear to have any impact on the estimated range after fill up of my car. The short term MPG could be 15mpg or 32 mpg and the estimated range will always be 510-540 miles.

I am surprised you are cross shopping an Audi A4 and a Honda Civic? Seems like the new Accord would be much more appropriate to cross shop?
