    Buying a 01\' S4 Possibly Tommorow, need advice

    Here is the listing. I'm going to test drive it tommorow, private owner.

    $28,500, '01 AUDI S4, blk, onyx blue int, Tiptronic, 23K mi, pwr glass sunrf, homelink remote transm, htd front seats, Napa lthr, alum mirror housing, invisible bra, 4-snow tires, CD player, fact warr until 10/06. Insp. Exc cond!

    Tell me what you think about this from looking at that. Also I have to get auto, it won't destroy performance that bad will it?

    All S4's have the same 260HP right?

    I'm buying this because I want a fast well handling car that is beautiful on the outside and the inside as well as safe. Is this the right car for me?

    I'm 6'5, do you think I will fit comfortably?

    Does this one have those amazing Audi seats? (whats the Nappa htd seats)?

    I also want to improve the stock performance. What would be the most effective upgrade for this car, or what should I do to it first?

    Thanks, all help appreciated.

    -Chris

    well KBB is around $31,660, so $28,500 doesn't seem so bad.

    and yes all B5 S4s have the same HP, but its actually 250HP here in the states, 265HP in europe.

    you're tall, but we're talking about a sedan here...not a porsche or ferrari. you should fit.

    as far as performance mods go, the best bang for your buck will be a chip. because the 01 S4 uses a forced induction engine, a simple engine remap and slight change in boost pressure (via chip/software) will realize significant gains. it seems the average chip for the B5 S4 provides roughly +60HP/+100tq these days. that's a huge gain from just a software upgrade. the mods go on, but they increase in price more than they increase in value. to add another 60HP after adding a chip, you would probably need to replace the turbos and some other parts, which would cost several tims more than a $700-$1500 chip.

    Thanks I'll look into the chip-ill get that first.

    Also what exactly is the RS4? Where is it available? Should I put RS4 parts on the S4?

    The tiptronic doens't matter does it? Or is it stupid not to get manual?
