Hmm - I was not enamoured of the $53k price (as optioned), the harder 
ride (I like the clark kent feel of the biTurbo S4).  I loved the 
engine, the real recaro's, and the shorter shifter.

But I decided to keep to '00 and get a wagon too.  So if anyone knows 
of a fairly priced, nice "semi sporty" wagon with AWD and lots of space 
(e.g.: A6/AllRoad size), in the NY/NJ area - let me know!.


ps: thanks to all who helped with the spark plug fiasco.  I think I can 
manage it now.
pps; to whoever thought the air filter was tough on the S4 - it looks 
easy (famous last words?)
