Hi John,

The B5-S4's are great cars but without's its flaws.  The gearbox/shifter isn't the greatest, kinda lumpy, and the suspension sits a little too high and too soft, handling is good but not great.

As far as reliability, the biggest concern are the turbos, they seem to blow even when not chipped occasionally.  Other than that the bypass valves and throttle body boot are weak too but easy and relatively cheap to replace with various upgraded parts (Audi or aftermarket)

Here's a link to a buyer's guide:
