1. i own the a4
2. my insurance is 1/2 what an s4 would be
3. i own the a4
4. ive got maybe $13k invested in the car total, and when all is said and
dont it will be plenty fast, and still low key.
5. s4's are an @ss sucking miserable nightmare to work on compared to the a4
6. parts are 2x more expensive for an s4.
7. i own the a4.
8. about 400 lbs weight advantage, which some racers feel make the a4 a
better driving car when setup porperly.

the a4 is fun to work on. easy, roomy, etc. try that in an s4, where you
have to pull the motor to change the dp's... that said i LOVE the s4, and
almost bought one in lieu f this, but im glad i did. i love cheap insurance.
