    Considering b8 s5 3.0 convertible , did anyone else consider one and ended up with the 3.0 tdi?

    Must have s tronic, heated seats and nav; and tempted by the convertible Budget will mean early models, £10k entry models meaning probably about 100k. Seen some indi dealers about £11k example s5, so with some negotiating or a private one I hope next year should see some examples in budget...

    S4 Cabrio, is this the best replacement for my kit car? What do I need to know?

    Above reply is a very good reply As long as you're not after a "fun" drive car then it ticks a lot of boxes It's a very nice car but with me as well only averaging 14mpg it really was one the main running issues. I didn't want to spend any money on upgrades but it 100% needs an exhaust upgrade...

    S4 Soft tops

    Clinical is a good word to describe the s4 now I feel But that's personal opinion And depends what you have experienced before Please OP don't let this put you off, try one. The guy I sold mine too loved it on an hour+ test drive. He was only going to use it at weekend though as he lives in London

    That's a good call I didn't realise sport mode was 5 gears only when I started with playing with the paddles Personally tiptronic worked well on this car and would imagine if I had in manual I would have got on with it even less

    S4 Soft tops

    You're kind of right there, it was never exciting. I too had a diesel pushing those figures at the time from a BMW 35d remapped :) Saying that it's not all about power figures, as more doesn't mean more fun S4 for me was never engaging

    S4 Soft tops

    I had one Same thinking as you You get a lot of car for your money I didn't keep mine for long, mainly of low mpg on a daily commute was getting to me and if I was to keep it, was going to be a money pit as it needs an aftermarket exhaust and some wear and tear items will need looking at to...

    Bye bye s4

    Brilliant car it was as I said But £8k less vat is £6.67k not £6k As for the 3.0 version, it doesn't have the "s" icon so not really comparable
