    the b5 s4 is a very nice car and you will be getting proper torsen quattro instead of hadlex. go for it! lots of tuning choices too if you want them.

    get one mate! dont even think about it anymore!

    you wont be dissappointed! my mates got a imola yellow S4 99! its an andrenaline rush when u experience 2.7litre V6 Bi-TURBO engine! 6 speed gear box its a car even i wish i had.

    perfect for cruising it definetely stands out, and when you feel like you want to floor it, the car turns in to Beast!

    start looking and get some test drives you wont be dissappointed!

    and should you ever if you need MORE power? no probs buy the RS4 K04 turbo kit! your good for 450+ BHP!

    a simple remap can also get you up to 320BHP ish!

    At the weekend I went cross country, A and B road blast, round trip 160 miles. Used the 320BHP and 500NM torque (MRC custom map) as and when I wanted/needed to. Not much gets in your way and nobody bats an eyelid. Got home and the average MPG was 27 and I had well over half a tank remaining. Not many cars you can do that in.

    Yep. That was giving it the beans on a cross country run. No traffic mind, moving all the time. Put it in traffic stop start and some short journeys and it will dive under 20 mpg happilly.

    Think kingfisher blue S4s are RARE! Seen one, but not many about, good luck.

    there was a kingfisher s4 on the net for ages whilst I was searching for mine

    two places I searched as they were fairly local to me were

    Fontain Audi and Croft Motors. Both specialise in Audi and VW.
