I would not have guessed the Audi and BMW would be on this list given my personal experience with Audi and from what I've heard from friends with BMWs.

They picked one from each of the brands they support, and I would agree with their selections (though I would have selected older versions of each). There are plenty of Audis and BMWs that I would never put on a "reliable" list.

MK4 1.8t and VR6 still do pretty damn well. Saab 9-3ss with the 2.0t ecotec are just about bullet proof, sold mine with 235k miles on it and it is still going very well for the owner, replaced with a V6t Aero which has way more power but sucks fuel economy wise.

B6 A4 1.8t would be my go to on bullet proof Audi's, lots of them with 250k+ miles going and going.

How about the 92 to 95 URS/4/6. Solid reliable, bullet proof motors, big power potential, great seats, everything you need for blasting across the country. Or, the even greater, V8 powered S6 Plus.

The AAN 2.2 turbo is extremely solid. I loved my urS6, and would love to get an RS2 as well.

Very nice.

We have two 94 S4s. Both are well up in miles. One has been relegated to a parts-car. I'm hoping the better of the two will successfully allow my wife to compete in (and complete) this year's Press On Regardless rally. This very car actually won the event on two previous occasions (by the previous team).

Yours is very nice, also. I love, love,love the S4’s and S6’s. I have had 6 already. The RS2 is the best of the best. You owe it to yourself to try one. They are intoxicating.
The S6 Plus is a bitch slap in the face to Porsche, for not making another RS2 together. Different, but oh so quick, with that V8 rumble.
They are all special cars, like the 928’s.
Cheers

Here's my old 95.5 S6 with my wife's Passat W8:

Even with the little engine, it was a great highway cruiser. Smooth, good handling, and comfortable.
Those 2.8s are very solid as well, and pretty easy to work on!

In terms of being stone cold reliable, our (now 21 year old) S2000 has needed nothing but fluids/filters, tires and a spark plug swap in over 40K miles.
I almost hate to type such a thing, cuz' it just might tempt fate :hitfan:

Send them here :grin:
I currently have a 2010 S6, which I would also put in the reliable cars over 10 years old category. So reliable, that I've hardly had to look anything up for it!
