Starting price in the Uk for a S4 saloon is £44,000.00Updated Brochure with the S4 now available to download from the website here
Hopefully by next year the discounts will be good and strong!
Supersports, heated seats and nav are now standard which were basically all the extra's I specced on the current car so doesn't look like bad value against a B8.5 really (comparing list prices). B&O sound looks expensive compared to the B8.5 though I have it as part of the black edition pack. Wonder when the Black Editions will be rolled out?
Generally when they up the spec they also up the price. I did notice a black pack is one of the options. It soon adds up when you add the options to equal a B8.5 black edition, black pack, B&O stereo, flat bottomed steering wheel, privacy glass etc.
Another thing to consider is that as of April 2017 the VED road tax for a car in this price range will pay £450 a year for first 5 years.
It's in the brochure - pages 61 and 124. The odds are that the configurator is wrong (and I assume that it does not show 254PS?)
Haha, yeah I meant 354! I'll have to take a look, don't know why it would be different though. 0-60 is 0.2s slower but imagine that's down to weight?
In terms of benefit the sports diff over the adaptive suspension. On the B8.5 the suspension in dynamic is firmer than the non-adaptive suspension but not so much that it 'transforms' the handling. Whereas the effect the sports diff has on reducing understeer is remarkable. The other advantage of the adaptive suspension is to be able to make it softer if you want to. But if you're not too bothered about that the getting the sports diff and then later uprating the springs or even getting coilovers would be a great idea. I too don't take my car to the edge of grip every day, but when I do I'm very glad I have the sports diff. It's just a shame that Audi have priced the sports diff at £1200 for the B9. Sports diff on B8/B8.5 cars is rare. It'll be rare on B9 cars until the price is reduced.
From my dealer I'm looking at just short of 15% but that's a special rate due to my profession. So...discounts of 10% are going to be readily available if haggled I imagine. Good news! Still to wait for my quotes from car wow but I'm very happy with the offer I just got.
Wow, that's a pretty impressive discount! Do you mind letting us know your profession to see if it's something we might be able to ask for as well? If not then that's understandable, my wife doesn't tend to publicise what she does either. Haha.
