      They aren't that bad. There is a difference between reliable and durable.

      The BMW is way faster, and drives a lot better but I wouldn't do it unless you are comfortable with DIY or willing to put up with higher running costs.

      Absolutely, a clean example with under 50K miles all hover around $34 - 39K, little lower with the private sellers & shady lesser known private dealers.

      Thanks all, just curious what the consensus was. I do plan on running a winter tire setup. Surprised even the non-enthusiast people would, but I'd imagine the S4 attracts more of an educated...

      This is going to take a while, slim pickings with the 6 speeds without driving 200 miles.

      Question for you S4 owners in the NE. Do you run all seasons, and compromise a lot of grip or run...

      This thread has my attention. I am looking for a replacement because I need a more practical car.

      It is funny how spoiled many people have become though with modern cars.

      Let's face it, average person doesn't understand what is really going on, with many things in life. Couple that with the powers of marketing like "AWD safety", and "AWD all season capability" and...

      I've driven the DSG and 6 MT. The DSG felt somewhat similar to my car in power and acceleration, the 6 MT? I would put bus lengths on it. Not into magazine racing but it was obvious either something...

      I test drove a 6 MT today. The throw was surprisingly good, it isn't short, but it's better than I thought it would be. I have years of experience in an S2000 so anything feels like crap, but it is...

      Absolutely. Must haves are sport diff, 2012, manual and B&O.

      Good to know. I forget to consider the drivetrain sometimes. I just look at trap speeds when looking at how fast a car is. I won't launch the car hard anyway, so ET means little to me, but 115 ish...

      I honestly feel the S4 is a better car than the F30 335i.

      I love the way the E90's drive, but I think BMW missed the mark with the F30. It just feels off compared to my car. Maybe its the...

      Doubtful that is running pump gas. What were your trap speeds? If that is on 93 octane you are either a very good driver or maybe missing some details? :)

      The other car I was considering is an E90 M3, but I can't get over the idea I'd be in the same car in many ways. And 15 MPG gets old when I need to take 200 mile road trips semi-frequently. Plus,...

      There are very few people who can handle a 425 wheel HP RWD car with total control. I don't care what anyone says, that is a ton of power.
