    I used to reverse in and my neighbor drove frontal and both as far over towards the columns on each side, which would leave plenty of room.

    We park all five cars outside of our house with plenty of room to wash them, enter, exit and work on. #coutrysideliving #suckstobecity

    Will receive later this week. Monsoon grey, premium plus w/ nav and keyless entry. Walnut trim. Cant wait to get it. Pics when I do.

    The S4 was just much more gas guzzling and I figured it would be more expensive to maintain. Ill opt for it for my next car in 3-5 years. The A4 was just sexy in person and I figured it would be good to be practical.

    Audi still doesn't put a next/prev control on the steering wheel in the A4 AFAIK. :fu:

    Most annoying thing ever.

    That has never really bothered me; the arm rest is in almost permanent use so having it next to the gear lever is perfectly fine.

    One thing I do find unacceptable is that voice control is deactivated on their convertibles (because it wont work with the roof down) but they leave the button there. It just sits there in the steering wheel taunting you - you've paid for it, a man put in and wrote a page in the handbook explaining that you're not allowed to use it. Fuck that. Either put a trigger that deactivates it when the roof goes down and let it work with the roof up, or put a useful button or even a blank space in that spot.

    I have looked at doing that, but I'm not comfortable messing with the computers on lease cars. The last thing I want to do is void some warranty or another and then get a disproportionately massive bill in 24 months time.

    I obtained 100 miles on half a tank!

    I typically get 60 miles with half a tank, so this is a 66.6% increase in mileage (i.e., 66% reduction in weight of lead foot).

    City or highway? Regardless, :facepalm: Though high praise for the significant increase.

    I picked up the 2013 s4 in monsoon grey, premium plus no walnut trim :( did the white on black seats. I love the car. It replaced my 2009 s5. the new V6T over the v8 is so much smoother and much faster than my s5.

    You are going to love it!

    It's the depression. It was either the driver or the pipe organ.
