Has the Turbo Lag issue died down? Did you end up getting a 6MT or an Automatic? If the former, I would be shocked by the Turbo lag because I've test driven multiple Audi(s) with manuals and never experienced a delay in the turbo response.
Just food for thought, test drive your car before you purchase it, just so you know the driving dynamics of the car you're going to take home.
If the problem persists, take it to the Audi A4 Problems / Issues board to see if other people had the same problem. I remember reading about turbo lag, but mainly with their automatic transmission, which is why I opted for the 6MT. Also, take a service guy on a test drive and show them what you mean by the problem, especially if it's continuous.

DID YOU BUY THE CVT OR THE 6SPD I HAVE TEST DROVE BOTH I FOUND THAT THE 6PD DOES NOT HAVE THE LAG BUT THE CVT HAD A SLIGHT ONE ALSO IS IT A QUATTRO I AM LOOKING INTO LEASING ONE SOON. HOW IS THE GAS MILEAGE? COULD BE A BROKEN O2 SENSOR DID YOU GET THE DEALER TO WRITE DOWN YOUR COMPLAINT IN WRITING AND DID YOU VERIFY IT. GOOD LUCK IN GETTING IT RESOLVED : THANKS RALLYFAN

Guys, after I bought the car I found out the exact size of the Audi to dealer incentive, it's actually 3k. Now that you know what the dealer is working with, you should be able to get an amazing deal on an A4. Good luck!

Hello! I still have the turbo lag issue. I bought a 6M. Have you ever heard that after you "break-in" the engine the turbo lag dissapears? This is the first time I buy a brand new car so I'm not sure about that. The salesman who sold me the car called me on Sunday saying not to worry about it because his S4 experienced the same. But I have a feeling it's not going to change. I don't if I should wait until the 1000 miles to see what happens or if I should go back to the dealer this week and have the service guy test drive it like you said. I also want him drive the car I test drove before they sell it so he can compare the two of them.

Do you mean you paid 3k below invoice price? Is it a Quattro?

I bought a 6M Quattro. The gas mileage is very good. They did diagnosed the car and I have a receipt for the services. Everything came out to be ok. They said the injectors needed to get adjusted and so on. Can you tell me more about the sensor you mentioned could be broken?
Thanks so much.

No I didn't get 3k below invoice, but the finance guy let it slip when I got a phone call a couple days later. So others can do better than the deal I got.

My salesman never mentioned a break-in period, and he also had a 2006 Audi 2.0T.
It's your investment, and if you're not comfortable with their initial diagnosis, call and set an appointment with the service department, and ask to take one of the service reps on a test drive to see if they can feel the lag too.
I'm still surprised this issue is on the manual transmission, as it's been widely discussed that the turbo lag is most noticable on their automatics. But it could be (as one poster pointed out) a problem with the O2 sensor.

Thanks for your responses. I will definitely go back and have the service guy drive the car. Thanks again for all your help
#798 of 2072 Pricing on S-Line?
Jul 10, 2007 (12:27 pm)
I am trying to decide between two cars, a Lexus IS250 and an A4 Quattro with S-Line pkg
Has anyone gotten a good price on an 07 A4 quattro with the SLine pkg? MSRP is just over $35k.
Im in Southern California, and I cant find any info on mfg to dealer incentives. The saleman at the Audi place is very high pressure, and I am not comfortable with him. Cant get a straight answer, so I am going to find another salesman to go through.
BUT I still am not 100% sure about the Audi, love the Lexus, too & it has more included options for the same price.
Did anyone compare these two vehicles? What prices did you get for them?
