Re: S4 buying gotchas


Of course, you're right on the URL...

I can't complain too much about my S4's value.  it's a '92 that I bought
nearly 4 years ago for a bargain $22k.  since then I've put 70,000 miles
on it and it's worth almost as much as I paid...

You're also right about "until Audi imports something better."   The new
S4 might fill the bill, but it's SO much smaller, and I already have an A4.
I guess the promise of an A6 V-8 with a stick (especially if it's an Avant)
might tempt me.  Doubt we'll see an S6 for many years?  Of course, for
the next four years the point is moot for me, since I've got a daughter
entering college in the fall (may have to sell the S4 to support college
