    S4 - Avant or Saloon?

    Which would you choose? I prefer the looks of the saloon, but the Avant is appealing due to the extra space.

    There appears to be more Avants available as well.

    Cheers.

    I prefer the look of the avant, and ofcourse its even more unassuming

    S4 - Avant or Saloon?

    I was initially looking for an avant, but came across my saloon and had to have. Tbf, the boots are pretty big on the b5 saloons

    If you get a saloon - get one with folding rear seats to give some extra space. I drive saloons and love their looks and quiet drive -. Try a few out to see which you prefer.

    I'd say get an Avant, but then I would be biased :D

    Cheers guys! Curbed one of the wheels on Saturday, was gutted! (Still am in fact!)

    Aragorn - as Bradderz has said I vinyl wrapped them myself, took about 2 hours to do! The badge had been sprayed satin black by the previous owner, so rather than just get a new one I got creative! Originally I wasn't sure about it, but when I swapped the faded red on the S4 badge to white it made it worthwhile I reckon :D looks miles better! Had planned to do the wing mirrors too, but I think they would look OTT now.
