I currently own an M3 Sedan and think it probably the best sports sedan on the market w/o question. The new S4 is going to seriously make me rethink my next car purchase (as it will most current M3 owners). The Audi quattro system is absolutely amazing in almost all conditions. I test drove the A4 before buying the M3 and in the rain the ability to floor the car through a corner and end up exactly where I want with minimal fuss is amazing. This will carry over onto the track very linearly. Driving on the track is all about maximizing the grip of all 4 tires to get you through corners at the highest velocities, a powerful car with the Audi quattro system will be able to do this much better than any RWD car in the hands of anyone but a racing professional (and probably even there too).
The interior of the Audi is very nice, although the seats leave something to be desired. I think this will be changed in the S4.
The exterior of the A4 is a bit bland, but this is also helped slightly by the S4.
I also agree with Alan that the TT is a cool little car, but not my cup of tea.
Any true car enthusiast is going to see that none of the companies are perfect, but by degrading Audi as you have you are showing a level of bias that is bordering on ignorance.
