Audis suck. My parents have had numerous Audis and they invariably have mechanical problems: bad suspension, broken (by me) oil pan, bad transmission, engine issues, quattro issues, etc. Brand new, Audi is generally ok because at least you have the warranty; so, it would be ok to lease if the lease rates and residuals weren't so horrendous. Out of warranty, watch out. Audi transmissions don't last; you can expect to replace the transmission after about 100k miles. Needless to say, that's very costly.
The interiors are also kinda crappy and everything is red; I don't care what anyone else says about them, but I do not like the Audi interior -- BMW is much nicer (so is Lexus, for that matter). I-Drive FTW!
