Cool story bro !

jokes aside, the new gen BMW doesn't do it for me either. I guess I'm going to wait for the other next gen.

I'd wait for the next gen... I hate the headlights on that facelift for some reason. I'd actually go for the pre facelift.

But I've driven one and I actually thought it was pretty good

I test drove a new S4 about 3 weeks ago and also fell in love. I do agree, the new gen BMW's do not do it for me, but I was very impressed with the S4 and loved the interior.

I like them a lot too. It might be my next car after the 335i. Love the interior on the audis too. It's a nice place to be.

If you end up with a loaded S4 (brand new), you might as well have ordered a "base" M3. Better car, better resale, similar price to begin with.

S4 might look cool, but it doesn't do anything better than a standard M3. Never has, never will.

the 435 isnt that great IMO. i felt like it was a 335 with better bells and whistles...it didnt really standout..still a nice car but not a huge diff....s4's are really nice IMO and the S5 even better

I've driven one also and its what I wanted but I got my 335xi for half the price of a used s4 with similar mileage. I like the idea of a supercharger over a twin Turbo set up.

Having owned turbo cars for the last 12 years (buick GN, 2JZ SC300), I never want to touch another one again unless it's under full warranty and sell it the day it expires.

+1, even though S4's are nice cars, the prices they are asking for are ridiculous if you take other cars into account, relatively speaking. However, I just saw the starting prices for the new M3 and M4 ...

My loaded S5 is only 5k more than my E92 335i RWD(and I dun even have upgrade audio & leather on my 335i). Both are bought brand new and both with ~ 5% discount. I dun see how a base M3 can be close in price of a loaded S4! For daily use, my S5 is completely destroyed my 335 in every aspect. And I am switching between the 2 cars almost everyday(not just by butt memory). The only cons on the S5 is the horrible fuel economy! It is 15% more thirsty than the 335.

not the S4, upgrade to the S5 or RS5, yes you got tired of your 335, but aim a little higher than an S4

Agree on the S5/RS5 but the S4 not a bad set of wheels...F30?? Not for me.

The S4 is made to compete really against a 335i, to get to M3 territory, you need an RS4.

what's the difference between s4 & s5 other than 2 less door & different wheels offset?
