I'm the original owner of my 2000 Audi S4 and every time I think about getting a different car; with the next drive, I forget all about it. This car is truly a joy to drive; sports car performance with sedan versatility. Fold the rear seats down and it can hold most anything I want to haul. Currently have 86000 miles with the original turbos and the car is chipped. You can drive the car hard, but be smart about proper warm-up and cool-down for longevity. This car requires proper maintenance and it can be expensive. But in exchange, the S4 rewards you by putting a smile on your face each and every time you get behind the wheel and hit the gas.
Gobs of torque - classy, stealthy look with awesome acceleration and handling. Quattro - with the right tires (summer and winter sets), you have one of the fastest vehicle on the road in rain or snow. Cockpit layout and instrumentation color. Bullet-proof engine - very tunable for 300+ hp.
Timing chain vs belt. Shifter feel and center display pixeling after time.
