Great vid.

The B7 RS4 was arguably one of the best cars Audi has ever made, short of the R8. People always bag on it for not being fast enough (when compared with its chief rivals, M3, CTS-V, C63, ISF), but if you've ever had the chance to drive one or like me, own one, then you loved it for the amazing engine (what an effortless, glorious rev-happy sound), spot-on suspension damping (It didn't need different "settings" because they got the spring and shock rates right), interior luxury (mine had a beautiful piano black trim with the Prestige red/black seats), and presence (it wasn't flashy, but if you are an enthusiast and saw it, you knew).

haha. probably the only reason why i love Mercedes Benz's AMG division...

they shoe horn that massive V8 into everything, creating some of the most pointless cars that no one in their right mind would buy.

Yet having a 450HP RWD Estate? LOL. I love it. If only they brought that to the US.

I agree with you on that. That's exactly why I kept mine, (although its the B7 Sedan) the RS4 just has qualities that are timeless. The gearbox, brakes, and motor all work in harmony. And it sounds damn amazing WOT. It's a shame about the new RS4 not being as good as expected, I had high hopes for it. This vid makes me want to go and drive my car now and appreciate what Audi has done. But my god the new RS4 looks beautiful. Best looking wagon on the market.

Mine was the sedan too. Watching the video makes me regret giving it up. It's already a classic. You should keep yours as long as possible.

I had a feeling the new RS4 would underwhelm after the disappointing release of the RS5 (which I also had high hopes for).

I was looking to sell the car in the near future, but I think I might just hold on to it for a bit longer. I enjoy every moment of owning it. Just an absolute hoot to drive rain or shine. What color was yours?

Black with Titanium Package.

I recall driving it in the rain. The sure-footed confidence was amazing.

Very nice, I have been wanting a fast wagon for a while now, and all wheel drive would be nice.

The only game in town is the CTS-V...even an S4 Avant, or 335xi would interest me.

S4 Avant will do just fine but see if you can get a used RS4 instead
