    Buying advice for S4

    Hi all,

    I'm currently looking about for an S4, (changed my mind from the M3!) to add to the stable.

    Are there any particular issues I should be aware of on these cars when looking at them, are there any well known problems or expensive items that it should have had sorted/replaced at certains times in life?

    Thanks in advance!

    just check that there are no lights on the dashboard like traction and abs light as it is common on S4's, check that it as been serviced regulary basis, check for gear syncro problems if its manual, listen for any knocks or bangs, try all the functions of the car to see if they are working as they should like the electric seats etc and lastly if there are any oil leaks from the engine bay so on, go for one buddy as they are really nice sort after motors pure luxury and sports

    Thanks.

    I'll look at a few in the next week or so, although I feel this may take a while trying to find the right one as there aren't many around, and even fewer that match what i'm after in terms of spec and age etc. Still, there's no rush.

    Hi, have you managed to take the plunge?? Have just started my search for one, and to say they are few and far between with the spec I want (on a cabriolet) is an understatement!! If you have managed to source one, how is it to live with as an everyday motor?? Running costs etc.
    Cheers
