Firstly, I was unsure which section to start this thread in as it should kind of be a cross between the two... I'm looking to upgrade from my 8P S3 soon for a bigger car, probably an estate and the two options that suit my circa £24k budget are a B8 S4 or a B7 RS4. What's are people's opinions on the options (and any others). Bearing in mind the potential running costs, repair bills etc, I don't want to buy something that could potentially be extremely costly if a couple of niggles arise due to age of a car. The V8 soundtrack is better, but having never heard a 3.0tfsi from outside I wouldn't really be able to judge the engine noise the S4 makes, although some of the YouTube videos with Apr/milltek exhausts fitted do sound nice. So yeah, opinions?
