    Hello noob here. I have located a 2001 S4 silver automatic with 37k on the odom. with convience and cold weather package. I am having a hard time justifying spending upto $22k on a used vehicle. I really am really looking for a 6 speed manual but it doesn't look like there are many in my area and not many in my price range at all. So is $22k too much for an Auto 2001 S4?

    If you're in the US, that's a steal IMO. A car with that low of miles for only 22K? I personally wouldn't buy it because it's auto, but it IS a good deal for the car that you get if you don't mind driving the Auto S4.

    Thats not a bad deal, Im sure you could work him down on the price a little, but not bad. Im not sure If I would get an auto like Cbass said - make sure you think long and hard about that.

    I also would agree with cbass, but i dont think you should walk away and give up tottally. Just take another look around and just wait for the car you really want. 6-speed, quattro, low miles, etc and then you will be fully satisfied. Even though that is a huge steal on price for one with that low miles.

    Buying an S4 Auto is the last thing that I would do!

    I agree with pretty much everyone else...It's a great buy, but don't get it if you are going to be unsatisfied with having an Auto.

    Thanks for all the opinions. Actually there is a low miles 2001.5 S4 selling fo 19k in MD, that's just a bit too far for me to drive... well here is my rationale and let me know if I'm crazy or not...

    If I don't get an S4, my other choice would be a 2001 A4 2.8L V6 auto. It appears that they are selling for around $18k in my. Now is 60 HP, 50 TQ and lots of suspenion upgrades worth the price difference of $3k? I would get an auto if it was the 2.8L version anyways.

    Also, the Manuals are about $4k over my budget, selling for around $25k. For $25k I would rather pick up a brand new Acura TSX with navi. So there is my delemia.

    They make S4s with Auto trannys? I didn't even know that. But seriously, that is a good good buy for the price and low miles. depends what you are trying to do with the car i guess... You have any future goals?
