A true Lovemark
I was immediately overwhelmed the minute I laid my eyes down on this car [Audi A4 Cabriolet] and totally caught up in the moment when I took it for a test drive. It was the fastest "big bux" decision I have ever made in my life: I sold my old car, cashed in all my savings, and went to the dealer to book my red cabrio, all on the same day. I got my 2.4 V6 the day of my engagement. Today, after having a baby girl, my wife rejects the idea of selling OUR car (although I pop in the idea just to test her). Audi is far more than an auto make or a brand, it is a true Lovemark. It captures you with its heritage and history, achievements and accomplishments. The Quattro and the All Road...what else can I say.

Luscious curves and cheeky looks
I love [Audi TT's] luscious curves and cheeky looks. To me, it is the incarnation of glamour. I do not own it yet but it is my dream car. I first saw it in December 2000 at an Expo in Mauritius. I was 18. I was in awe and spent 1 hour admiring it inside out. Every time I see one on the road I can't hope to look at it and be thrilled by it. I guess that's how guys feel when they see a pretty girl on the road...I nearly hit a car one day. Anyway I just LOVE it! I will have one in the next few years, I have to!

A way for us to bond
The only cars that I have ever owned are Audis. Audi to me represents both an awesome brand as well as my relationship with my dad. My dad fixes and occasionally races these cars. Audi automobiles have been a way for us to bond ever since I began driving. Something that he has helped me to appreciate from both a design/styling, as well as engineering and performance, standpoint. I love driving my Audi and the connection it represents with my dad.

This car wants you crazy
Drove those days an A4 Kombi (station wagon), V6, turbo diesel machine. The guys from Audi did a great job. This car wants you crazy. Really crazy. If you reach 160 km/h on national roads (not highways) you ask yourself, how would be like pushing for more? Approaching a curve is not making you brake, but accelerate to see what's the limit, wondering when you will see the ESP light flasing on board, and the strange thing is... it does not. If it is raining you really do not care. After 150 km/h, in 6th gear, the sound of the engine changes, it becomes like an aphrodisiac for your ears. Fantastic car.

Love affair with my A6
I have had a five-year love affair with my A6. It is responsive, attractive, fits me like a glove, and is as close to intuitive as any engineered companion is likely to get. All this, plus the fact that this constant companion has saved my life on several occasions. Audi "had me at Quattro"!

The new super car that school boys dreamed of
"The original against which all other rally and high performace 4WD cars are judged: the original or ur-quattro was unveiled on Tuesday 4th March 1980. No other car could do what it could with the same style or comfort. A Porsche could go as fast but only with two people. A Land Rover could go off road, but not as fast. With it's big boxy wheel arches the car was the the new super car that school boys dreamed of and for nearly all of the 80's it won all the rallies. And it gave the most glamorous of drivers, Michelle Mouton the chance at the world title and let her blow all the other cars into weed on Pikes Peak.

A few months ago, I received my new fully equipped A6. Having worked in the car navigation industry for years, I can appreciate the incredible MMI (Man Machine Interface) of it. This is the most intuitive interface to car electronics on the market. It gives me the "Swiss Knife" or "Bang & Olufsen" feeling.

Fits like a good suit
Audi A3 Sportback - the start of the Audi range! It fits like a good suit and drives like a class above. Why would I not go back to upgrade in the future?

I drive one, have owned two, have a personalised plate on mine "4RINGS". Great car, great style, great proposition. Not considered a tosser's car, unlike some other European vehicles.

To drive it is to want it
I love the solidity of our dolphin-grey Audi A4 wagon, the attention to detail, the thoughtful design touches. Nothing is ostentatious (but maybe those four big rings on the grille are almost too big). For the money you get so much more car than BMW or Mercedes give you. To drive it is to want it...I don't think I'll ever buy another make!
