    Audi B9 A4 Review

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I got to experience a B9 for the week....wow this is impressive and a huge step up from my B7 A4...
    Looks amazing, power was really surprising...almost makes me not want or need an S4...
    Every time someone got in the car they commented on the digital dash, itís amazing.
    Here is my review!

    Excellent video. I'm impressed & agree with 99% of your comments. As to the out-of-place volume control on the console: I find it quite handy when driving casually where I just have my left hand on the steering wheel. My right hand just naturally falls to that volume control. Also, that knob moves side to side to move up or down your preselected radio presets. Now, you just need to get rid of that yellow thing! Just kidding...

    The position of the volume knob is a love/hate relationship for me.

    On one hand, like you said, it's in the perfect spot when I'm driving with one hand on the wheel and my right falls either onto the shift knob as a wrist wrest (automatic here) or by the volume knob. Where it fails on certain occasions is when the spouse is in the car and she accidentally hits it while shifting around or looking for crap in her purse.

    At the end of the day though, it doesn't really matter! Not a big enough problem to complain about. The car is fantastic.

    I️ agree, at the end of the day this A4 is fantastic. Audi really stepped it up with the B9. If you compare it to a C class or 3 series, I️ believe that it is miles ahead of the competition.

    Iím glad you have a good sense of humor about it. I was just giving you a hard time. The rest was pretty good and detailed but I had trouble with the shaky cam. But I do like the B9 a lot. One thing I dont hear people mention is that long vent design across the whole dash is actually from really old school Audis.

    just to the left of the drivers side heated seat control is?

    I asked that at the dealer yesterday and they said itís just the interior temp sensor.
