RE: S4 buying gotchas

On my first trip to Ingolstadt in 1992 someone from "Audi Sport" picked me
up at the Queens Hotel in an automatic S4 and took me to their shop.  The
driver a young man said he was to keep it for a few months keep a log of
everything that happened,  make a report on it, and turn it in.

I saw one in New Zealand on a dealer's lot.  It was a 93 or 94 I think.  All
the S4 goodies, but and auto.

I think it would be pretty cool, especially if it could handle a chipped
motor.   ;-)
