The base model is called a "premium?"
So i'm surfing the inventory of A4's today and there are a crap load of 2009-2010 A4 premiums ... i'm guessing these are all coming off leases...most are still under warranty
saw one for 21k thats a 35k car new after 2 yrs...
whats going on?
oh and most are auto's w/o xenons or navigation etc , the premium plus usually go quick..
The fly cannot be driven away by getting angry at it.
and audis go premium, premium plus, and prestige i believe.
I changed my oil with diluted KY Jelly and I really like it. Drove it 3 miles no problem yet. Highly recommend it.

Base Audi A4s come with basically no features and you would have to option it up to what comes standard now in mid-level economy cars. The A4 Premium I test drove had only a couple options (not even Bluetooth) and the MSRP was around $34k. You pay a lot of money for the badge and leather as standard.

Stock B8 S4's run 13 flat, if not faster.
Tuned with APR and their pulley only, capable of low 12's easy, some have dipped into the 11s.
Friend took his DSG APR tuned B8 and ran a 12.3@112. Just tune and pulley.
Obviously a modded S4 would win, but then again with the money you're saving between the two you could buy plenty of beer to make you forget.

It does seem like a nice car- with just the center controls, base key fob thing and cramped rear seat being issues.
Since this U.S. is all about bigger being better, I can see why this gen A4 in basic form is not overvalued on the used car market.
To me a luxury sedan means having a comfortable back seat too.

I suspect like any entry level luxury car the reason is because there are tons and tons of base spec lease specials red tagged out doors and years later a small market of people willing to pay a premium for a used one.
I have to stop this idiot from deminishing my credibility every time he posts because my usernsme is in his sig.
Does anyone know why the B8 with 2.0t smokes so much? Almost as bad as an 80's W124 diesel. In the last month I've seen no less than three leave the light under light throttle with a huge black, sooty plume of smoke.
The black one in front of me at the light yesterday had "certified used" plates on it like the guy just bought it. When he left the light it smoked so bad you thought it had a B-Sieries Cummins in it. I would have been embarrassed. Hopefully it's not a hidden time bomb with the 2.0t motors.
I own a 2010 and have oil consumption issues which audi refuses to admit. Seems like some 2009 and 2010 burn 1 quart ~1200-2000m. It even states in the manual that burning a qt/1200m is normal.
Ours is a sport model and the controls are laid out along the gear shifter which is much nicer then base controls.
