A Standalone Sleeper Sport Sedan That Still Keeps Us Awake At Night The always-bustling Audi stand at next month's Detroit Auto Show figures to be cluttered with a full range of eighth-generation A4 models, all of which arrive in the States sometime between June and July.

It is, of course, no secret that we here at Autoblog like our horsepower. But what we like even more than that is good automotive sense and a great driving experience. And if we're honest with ourselves, we can admit that those don't always require a 580-hp V10. Audi appears to feel the same way when it comes to the next S4. For the next generation model ...

SBEuroClub member Brooks Uhrig is a 2001 Audi A4 owner, but that doesn't mean he wasn't willing to put in some time chasing down a BMW M3 test mule he spotted near his Santa Barbara, California home. The persistent Brooks even tailed the driver some 45 minutes to Montecito, where he was able to snap a good number of shots when the tester parked it in ...
