A change in my current situation will see me going from driving 200km per day, down to around 25km per day. Got me thinking of going to a petrol car the next time, except I'd miss all that lovely torque /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif I have and A3 Sportback 2.0 TDi as a lease car right now. Would the S4 cost too much to run as a private car compared to the A3? That's costing around 575 euro per month which covers everything like insurance, tyres and servicing. So my hypothetical question is, what difference in running costs could I expect to see if I were to go for a 2004 S4 in say a year or 2? Bare in mind that I currently have a diesel fuel card right now, so I could more than likely switch this over to a petrol car (not telling the company about the S4 naturally /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif) Just throwing it out there to get your thoughts on such a move. I'm 30 years old if that makes a difference. Cheers.
