Re: S4 buying gotchas

Ah yes, but don't forget the "bang for the buck analysis."  According to
Edumunds, the base price of an 1993 S4 is $20,955 and the base price of a '91
200q20v is $10,330.  For the $10K, differential, one could make the 200q20v go
quite a bit faster.  For about $4K you could add chips, a transducer, and an RS2
manifold and turbo and get about 330HP (which is about 100HP more than the S4)
and you still have $6K more to play with.   Big Brakes?  Wheels and tires? New
suspension?  Just my two cents....
