Agree completely with Ti.  I'm keeping mine long term as well.  I still
think it is really special.  I even managed to get one without any funky
wood trim in it - all aluminum.  There are a lot of gimmicky cheesy
copies out there, but none compare with the 2000-2001 S4 for me.

2001 S4 Avant 6 speed loaded stock - still puts a smile on my face every
time I drive it.  Cheers.

Yes it is.  However the Passat W8 is more a cruiser than the sport
sedan the S4 is.

Don't know, but I am not crazy about its interior, that dashboard
is really gimmicky.

I think its going to be difficult to find another car that combines
the understated sophistication, performance design and fit/finish
of the S4...  I am keeping mine for the long haul.
