o the trusty M235i has now gone and i have my awesome new S4 As I mentioned previously this was a 'forced' change due to practicality requirements so whatever replacement i go for has large shoes to fill. So after looking at various options I decided the practicality, all weather ability and interior quality of the S4 was my preferred option. Having found a car in Audi stock that fit my specifications, just 3 weeks later the handover was complete! Its early days however I am extremely happy so far. The S4 looks and sounds fantastic with the interior being so far ahead of the 3 series its laughable! Initial impressions are that the steering does not feel quite as direct as the Beemer which is no surprise however the ride is far more compliant and composed. The cabin is quieter with less tyre roar and wind noise however the engine gives an awesome sound when hitting 4krpm! I've gone no further up the rev range yet as am still running in but i expect it to sound epic and i would guess it must be louder than the M235i from outside. I'm having difficulty connecting my Audi Connect MMI with my phone app as the MMI is not recognizing my primary user code/details but should figure this out pretty quickly. Further updates, thoughts and comparisons to come as i get to know the car however here are a couple of photos. I will get some better pics in due course but may spend most of my time driving for now!
