    What would you choose? An S3 or an S4?

    Hello all,

    Tough one... I am stuck between deciding between these great cars and I would like other peoples point of view.

    I love the S4:
    Power, REAL Quattro

    I love the S3:
    Nimble smaller car and a more rewarding drive. Easier to work on/mod.

    What are your views and what would ultimately be/has been your choice?

    It all depends on whether you can afford to do the mods etc. Since like a turbo upgrade is an engine out job on the S4.

    If it was me i would get a S3 but thats because i would be worried of the running costs since i am a student.

    I was going to get an S3 instead of my A4 but didnt because for the money i had. I would have had to get a 60k+ miler whereas i got a under 20k miles A4. I am very glad i got my A4 now though since i have learned a lot more about them.

    If i were you i would buy an A4 1.8T and get a big turbo. But thats just me.

    Cheers.

    I had an S4, 340bhp, 400lbft, stoptech brakes, rs4 suspension etc etc.. Fast, yes, but dull to drive, ill handling, expensive and unrewarding.

    Now I have an S3 which is a much better drivers car.

    For driving, S3.

    For cruising, S4
