Hi Robby

I had a 1995 BMW 540i 6 speed for 4 years before the S4.  Engine never
missed a beat in 70k miles.  The only problem  I had in that time was with
the power steering, which was completely replaced at 30k under warranty (BWM
UK extended warranty, well worth £300pa - why can't Audi have the same
confidence in  their products?).  Otherwise the car felt like it would last
forever.  Low revs in 6th means relaxed long-distance cruising, but box
needs dropped to 3rd or 4th for punchy overtaking.  Driveability benefited
from cheap Superchips upgrade to 300bhp.  I thought I would never sell the
car - right up to the point when I stepped into the S4.

Definitely worth a close look.  Give me a shout if you want to know any more
about it
