    Congrats man! you have a very fast car but just a piece of advise: "don't chip it soooo soon man, enjoy for while, get use to driving the car first, figure out it's limits and when you know your car by heart then go up gradually!". I waited a year to start doing some mods on my car and every year, I increase some horsepower (reached my limit now).

    DRIVE SAFELY!!!!!!!! Don't go showing off! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    I most definitly would not, he wouldn't appreciate what he's got. Things mean more to someone if its their hard earned money that they had to spend. I also hate those spoiled rich kids, but i know i'm better off doing things on my own rather than having to rely on mommy and daddy, haha

    Yes I would but no-way something like an s4 as a first car- he`d get something less powerfull such as a small 1.4 hatchback. There was a case once where a guy bought his 17 year old son a Porsche and stumped up a silly amount for insurance- The son didnt take to long to crash it...and killed a pedestrian. The judge was very critical of the father when sentencing- rightly so. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gif

    p.s. nothing persoanl but I know what sixteen year olds can be like... an s4 and money to chip it...hmmmm

    Man, like I said, if it is earned by my child and that I can rely on his responsable behavour...I would definatly buy him an S4! Furthermore, the S4 although it's powerfull, it's also a pretty safe car! It's all about how you manage your children! AGAIN PLEASE DRIVE SAFELY AND ENJOY!

    "16 year old" - "S4"- "responsible behaviour"

    Ummm something not quite right here.

    I think I'd be a bit disappointed if I could truly rely on my sons responsible behaviour at 16!

    I still think you're first car should be a clapped out old deathtrap to really get them to appreciate the important things in life, like brakes that actually work.

    from what i've seen in michael moore's videos, canada seems a like it has a lot less crime, especially if you can leave your doors unlocked on your house!!! probably why insurance is lower.

    Afour, excellent choice with the A4. Is it sedan or avant? Since we had our son, I've been thinking of buying an S4 avant or an RS4 (more spatious and still very powerful) /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    I wanted to get the allroad but many told me to reconsider... I've heard some complaints! I wonder why?

    Anyways, HAPPY DRIVING!

    Welcome to the forum. Are you based in the States? I've noticed a couple of other young-ish (16/17) forum members who are also driving S4s or 1.8Ts and they were in the US.

    Well come myman and like the rest say be careful as you have a very powerful car for someone your age.

    In regards to should he have it!

    Well if it was my kid, earned it or not or safety or not, I would not give my son such a car.

    Because as stated if he was to kill or be killed because of his lack of skill in driving such a car I would not forgive myself so a new less powerful car would be the order of the day, And then and only then after he's shown me he is skilled and mature enough would I consider a more powerful car.

    It’s like giving a kid a gun you can only he wont pull the trigger.
