THe S4 with the little K24 is extremely predictable and easy to drive.
Find a late 70's early 80's Porsce 911 turbo and drive it for a day.  You
will soon appreciate the"predictability" of

Audi did remove these things for a reason. Take a trip and calculate your
MPG etc. the old fashioned way and compare to your computer.  Which do you
think is more accurate?

I think the complainers should have been looking into buying a Cadillac(no
offense Graydon) rather than the S4.  Either that or buy a V8 Q.

It sounds like you haven't had the S4 for very long.  I don't know your
back ground of cars but it takes some getting used to  driving a turbo
car.  I think your best option would be to swap motors in the 2 cars and
build yourself an S2. Just my opinion though.  After a month if you are
still not happy with the S4 I would gladly take it off your hands, free of
charge. :-)  Happy motoring.
