RE: S4 costs

Bruce -

I'm new to the list and to the internet, so forgive me if you've already answered this:  what modifications did you make to your 200tqw to raise the level of performance to that of a S4 or S6?  What did the modifications cost?

Thanks in advance!

	Back when I was looking for a daily driver, I looked at several 
S4's and thought the same thing [too much cash].  Now, before you S4 
owners send me hate mail--let me add a caveat.  When I looked [year ago?] 
prices were ranging from 25k up.  Since I drive approx. 40,000-50,000 per 
year, I just plain did not want to eat the depreciation that would be 
necessary after only 2 years of driving.  They are darn nice cars, and I 
still want one.  But, for me, the 89 200tqw fit the bill and, for having 
[still] way less than 10k in it, no stock S4 or S6 will stay with it.

	Still kick myself for letting that 93 S4 with about 25,000 on it 
slip through my hands at the insurance pool for 6k.  Needed interior, 4 
wheels, air bag [yeah, like I would replace that], stereo and a paint 
job.  Oh well.
