This is something I've been trying to get to grips with myself. I have an
APR stage 1 Avant Sport with about 95K on it now and I've been drooling over
getting a new 2.0T Avant with all the options (including the S-line
package). All in all, 40K!! But, I like my current A4, even though it needs
a little cosmetic work now (scratches, dent in the bumper etc). The thought
of swapping in a K04, new exhaust and uprated clutch would be a far cheaper
way to put a grin on my face...
