Re: S4 vs. V8 -Reply
GKW>>Thanks for your help. I am leaning toward the V8 because I,

S4 as soon as I can find one ( there are a couple of used ones in the

accompanied trip.) I was expecting more zip.

the other thing i would consider doing is to breathe some new life into
your 200Q.. put IA mods in it...

just looking for a newer one with fewer miles. (Mine has "only" 103K)
