    I had previously ordered a S3 saloon (2 actually lol)

    However, my wife and I were having concerns over the size of S3 saloon to the point where we went down to the Dealers to have a play in a A3 saloon to see if it was really big enough. Well as you can guess it wasn't big enough for our needs, with ever expanding Grandkids

    So when we returned home it was straight on 'tinterweb for some research

    I could see that some of the Audi Dealers were offering cracking deals on S4's. Got my best price and went off to my local Dealer

    Surprise surprise they came within £400 of my best online quote
    The price of the S4 was almost to the £ the exact price that I was paying for my S3 saloon at its discounted price! Would have been rude not too! lol

    Order form signed, deposit paid. I was fortunate enough to hijack a Dealer order on one and have gone straight in at BW20, which I'm hoping may be sooner

    Spec wise I haven't gone for a lot of extra's. I never do TBH. & really for me the S4 BE has enough kit on it

    My Spec.-
    • Audi S4 Saloon Black Edition 3.0 V6 TFSI quattro
    • S-tronic
    • Pearl effect sepang blue
    • Black styling pack
    • Full electric black leather / alcantara seats
    • Black headlining
    • Piano black inlays
    • 19" 5 arm rotor titanium wheels
    • Parking system plus
    • Cruise control
    • Interior lighting pack
    • B & O sound system (14 speaker 505 watts)
    • Audi Music Interface
    Below are the options I went for -
    • Audi drive select
    • Damper control
    • Hill hold assist
    • Leather door armrests from & rear
    • Storage pack
    I've had three previous new A4's in the last 13 years, so it looks like I was destined for another one albeit a S4 this time

    This was my last A4 which I must say I loved and I don't normally get attached to my cars TBH

    Well coming from an A4 to an S3, just make sure your car *** doesn't stick out in the supermarkets as it's a loooooong car :p

    The A4 B8 forum is a friendly place, slightly more mature if I must say so myself

    My S3 saloon was also in sepang blue too. Almost went with floret silver for my S4, but changed my mind at the last minute

    One question you may be able to answer. Does the B8.5 S4 come with LED number plates lights as standard?

    I knew I'd tempt you with that six letter word beginning in e and ending in e!
    3.0t (when it isn't even a t but its super) was clearly enough to release the petrol head inside of ya!
    Excellent choice!

    Good choice :icon thumright:


    Did you have chance to take one out for a run? Supercharged V6 is a very different driving experience to anything I've driven before, with the linear power delivery and instant response to what seems like unstoppable acceleration :onthego:

    & thanks buddy :thumbs up:

    Cheers :)

    Unfortunately I haven't had a chance for a test drive in a S4. My local Dealer who I'm purchasing thro' doesn't have one in group. But hey, more too look foreword too when it arrives :thumbs up:

    Great choice & colour there BH...having had 2 x S3's in the past, for me it definitely ticks more boxes with regard to practicality & pace (and exhaust farts!)
    It'll come around in no time - good luck & enjoy!
    - Yes.

    Thanks :)

    The only reason I've jumped the queue so to speak is I've hijacked the Dealer's order. They just swapped their spec for mine. Just trying to keep away from the brochure at the mo so I don't add anymore options lol

    I can relate to that. If you're thinking of keeping it for more than a couple of years, I'd consider extending the warranty. Cost me around £750 for an extra 2 years. Prices are the same for all A4 models!

    You should be able to get the same discount on options as well as the base price.

    My Avant spec has storage pack,tech pack, convenience pack, sports diff and heated seats. Not BE though, so no B&O. Considered dampers but couldn't convince myself.

    I'll bear the additional warranty in mind. Cheers :thumbs up:

    Dealer already done this on a previous order, with some prompting ;)

    Sounds like a nice spec there buddy :)

    He'll want a bigger boot and more power, so it'll be an C7 RS6 Avant

    That's so funny, I was only thinking just now if you had collected your S3 already BH, so looks like you enjoy the waiting game.

    By the way, isn't there a new S7 on the way or recently released?

    Congrats on the order BH, the spec looks fantastic
    Glad to see u specced the light pack as it's very disheartening without.
    U not fancy the MMI ?
    The 19" rotors will look great on the sepang paint

    Just had a call to say my S4 BE is at Sheerness, so just the last leg to Poole to go now :cool:
    I was torn between Sepang and Daytona.....went for Daytona in the end.
    Going to be sad seeing my TT go....but eased somewhat by getting in the S4 :)

    Must work out how to get photos onto the thread....

    Its true its an avant but the colour / wheel combo does look good. That was the last time it was clean (3 weeks ago), maybe this weekend I'll clean it again although there's rather too much Rugby on.

    You might have to tweak something on Flickr. If you click on the share arrow (on Flickr) and then choose BBCode it says "Sharing is restricted for this photo" which is likely the issue. Normally you just grab the image link and enclose it in the image tags which is what I think you have done.
