The s4 still looks pretty dam sharp , I would have gotten an sti instead but I'm still not at that point where a cars comfort is more important then being fun to drive . In a few years that most likely will change though

pete, the FIRST thing id do to that car is a tune, audi is notorious for neutering their cars. hell my s4 would gain about 70whp and 90wtq just with a tune....i wont do it because my car has too many miles and im gonna have to replace the turbos here soon enough, but you get the point. id imagine that the newer s4 is the same way since its forced induction.

I doubt he'll tune a car that he wants a headache free warranty on.

It's not Audi, it's whether or not the tech. enforces a policy every car company has.

It won't be, until he breaks something expensive not meant to take more than stock power levels.

apparently a S4 with the SPR stage 2 tune does 60-130 in 11.6 seconds. Bone stock M5 is like 10.8 or something.

You mean APR, right? They have my ECU in their possession down in Alabama right now lol.

S4 definitely has more usable power on the street. I'd say it's a bit easier to have some safe fun with it in comparison to the M5.

Obviously you manual but I'm betting a DSG Stage II would run the 60-130 in around 11.2-11.3.
