- the brakes stop well enough but are near impossible to modulate and come to a smooth stop.
- the automatic transmission doesn't make smooth starts easy, you either have to floor it or creep away.
- lots of shudders and shakes (but it is a convertible)
- HUGE blind spots with the top up (again, it's a convertible)
+ the exhaust note is fantastic under WOT.
+ the power is very acceptable for a car of it's heft.
+ the adaptive xenon headlights are really cool (but damn I'd hate to pay to replace one)
+ great "German" handling (not sure if the tires should be this aggressive on a convertible model, but I don't mind)
+ great steering wheel and seats
+ has all the bells and whistles
all the negatives other than the brakes would be remedied by ordering a fixed roof manual model. my new object of lust is officially an S4.
I'd do a better write up but my laptop battery is dying and I don't posses the literary skill of our resident reviewer legasleeper.

I got to ride in a coworker's yellow RS4. Smooths out corners like they don't exist.

There? For what, just in case a pineapple truck goes upside down?
