Time for a change.... S4?

Hi guys,

It's time for a change..... I'm going to need a 4 door eventually & think now is the time!

I'm thinking about an S4 (2010) - these can be mapped to RS4 performance!

Has anyone owned one?

Cheers

Very capable car if my mates (which I have been in a lot) is anything to go by. Sadly not driven it myself but he rates it and has had a number of fast 3 series before, 330d, e90 M3 etc

Try an xfr too - Similar age/pricing..

S4 are over valued in my opinion.

The S4 is a great car, I bought a 335 instead because the 335 was cheaper and just as good.

Looking at prices of S4, the cheapest B8 S4 is still over £16k

Given 335s are easily available for 10-15k I would say the S4 is still way over priced.

I've been driven around by my mates in a few S4, and though they are quick, they are no quicker than my 335, and for all their 4WD trickery, understeer is the theme of the day.

Get a 335 for 10-12k, put a LSD,decent suspension,remap on for 3k and it will make a stock 15k S4 seem very dull
