Thanks, SkyDog77. You're right, anything below 45 degrees and I can start to feel the summers slip. The S4 with winter tires is an absolute animal of a sedan. Drove it through 10" unplowed with no problem, just had the snow plow issue
Yes Blizzaks + S4 is awesome.

When I was stationed at Colorado Springs in 1969.I arrived in November in a VW bug. Never had snow tires. Later switched to a Camero. I was driving through Cheyenne mountain and over to Cripple Creek and Victor. Spent a year there and never had a problem driving through the snow. I had a manual transmission and knew how to downshift so I wouldn't have to brake. Driving an Audi I doubt seriously you'll have any problems. The bug wasn't good in the snow as it spun out several times going to Fort Carson and the wipers froze to the windshield. Never had another VW.

Should be fine. The old 80s 4 cylinders wouldn't make it through the mountains in North Carolina. I had traffic backed up. Those old 4 cylinders had no power. Made the same trip in a Prius and had no problem. Plenty of power...

Can't tell if trolling or serious, if serious, modern day 4 cylinders will have plenty of power. That's assuming you're not towing anything with that 4 cylinder, in which case you should re-think your choice of vehicle.

Love these stories about older cars, we're soooo spoiled these days with all the electronic assistance, AWD, etc. Thanks!
