Compared to Audiworld this list is incredible. Lots of helpful info and 
honest people. Thanks to everyone for all the help I've gotten. Always 
thought Audiworld was controlled by Audi and now I'm sure. When I posted 
my complaint about Audi's lack of reliability, I was first attacked, 
then thread was purged.

Bought my 01.5 S4 new in 4/01, could have been an 02 if I titled it 1 
month later. Have been totally disappointed in this car, because I was 
always fixing it for too many little things. And Rockville Porsche Audi 
is terrible and dishonest. Will be taking them to sm. claims over poor 
repairs, lying  and warranty denials (after they agreed to repair 
it).One example is when they replaced the front brakes under my 
maintenance contract and didn't even inspect the rear brakes that were 
at their limits. I had almost all the common S4 faults/problems and I'm 
finally tired of it. Ordered a Lexus IS-F. Cost $55K for a 4.4 sec, 0-60 
.91 g and I get the best reliability in the industry. Those are R* specs 
for half the price. The B5 S4 is a gorgeous looking car inside and out, 
but honestly Lexus has caught up, at least on the inside (heated and 
COOLED leather seats). Still a little too japanese tacky on the outside 
IMO, but a car is to drive not simply look at, so I'll smile as I drive 
it. Have a lot of parts for sale  and my S4. Car details: 01.5 Santorin 
Blue, with lux, sunroof, Bose, cold weather, B5 S4 with  50.1K. Always 
changed the oil with Mobil 1 every 5 K. When anything broke I fixed it  
right immediately. Car has 2 -3 year old New German trans (replaced 
under warranty) with Toy Guy shifter, so it may be best shifting S4 
around. New brakes at 40K, and more. Great car for modding. Does have a 
small dent in the p. door, courtesy of my neighbor.

4 OEM wheels, 3 in perfect condition, 1 w/scratch
