Buying winter tires was something that I was dreading… Almost as much as the weather that they are designed for. I went back and forth between buying all-seasons or dedicated snows, which brand performed the best under the expected conditions, their performance rating and ice versus snow traction.

We finally had a break in the weather today and I decided to get the car washed. Too bad it’s already covered in road salt.

The gas mileage started out a little rough. It was tough to crack 18 MPG. After talking to several people about the issue I was able to resolve it by using high-grade gasoline.

It’s been nine months and about 7,000 miles since I took delivery of the S4. There is so much about the car to love. The acceleration, traction, and braking ability of the car are incredible. The exhaust note under hard acceleration is amazing, especially with the S-Tronic, with a little extra burble with each up-shift. Continue reading ‘Road Review: 9 month 2010 Audi S4 Update’

Around here, oil isn’t a dirty word; how does 90 cents a gallon sound?

Many of you have asked if we will ever do car reviews. Many of you have asked for specific cars to be reviewed. A month or so ago, it hit us. A good friend of ours, @Mike Juergens, had ordered a 2010 Audi S4. A perfect car to start off with! We asked him if he would like to do a long term road test on it and he welcomed the idea.
We wanted it to be “from the owner” and not a typical “magazine” read. It will live on as the miles accrue. Likes and dislikes, mods, recalls a few videos and more will be included. Please feel free to ask questions, leave comments etc. Onto the intro and gallery! (continue reading…)
