I left BMW, and went with the enemy...

Picked up a 2013 Audi S4 6MT last night.

I had a 2013 335i on order, but cancelled the deal because the dealer was trying to dick me around, as well as another dealer a state away.

I'm happy though, and the S4 feels more like a sports car (IMO, before people start going down my throat), than the 335i does.

Has anyone gone from BMW to Audi also? Or vice versa?

I went from an S4 to the 135i. The AWD is something I miss, no doubt. It brought me a lot more confidence when driving aggressively.

congrats! not a big audi person myself, but the s4 is nice. imo I cant get over the understeer or steering feel, but those don't matter at all for daily driving.

S4 is better than 335i no doubt. Congrats.

Congrats on the new S4! I went from a 335i to S4 and no regrets so far. Both cars are great, I do miss the better handling with the 335i.

Although, I'll be going back to BMW (F80 M3) after I get bored with the S4.

I went from tuned 2010 135i to 2010 B8 S4. I love the car but it does have some annoying nuances. I think they've since fixed these issues on newer models but the MMI in my 2010 is abysmal. Slow, slow, and slow. The navigation works much better but the rest of the MMI is terrible.

Only thing I dislike about the s4 is the 4 doors. I hate sedans.

If I wasn't liking the c7 so much I'd be looking real hard at the rs5.

Which dealers? Burdick, Carbone, Towne, BMW of Rochester?

Burdick - supposedly the CA I had was making decisions without going to the General Sales Manager. There's a big story that goes along with it.

I feel their losing their "edge" they had on competition.

Had a 528i loaner the other day as my 535i was getting maintenance done. It was junk.
