I'm looking at a '00 S4 Quatro, 95k - manual, bone stock. what do you guys think? Dealer wants $9,995, kbb is $9,495, I'm sure i can get the price right, any things I should worry about? - Preferably input from s4 owners-
Maintenance is key. I've seen k03s go to 160k miles. I bought my S4 with the intention of having over 500 hp. I succeed. It's a great platform to get great power. Right now, I should be sitting near 600 crank HP. 2001.5 has no F hose which are prone to tearing, but check out 034 and buy an upgraded F hose and you're good to go. But, any year is okay. The 2000 model is actually lighter then the rest. They have aluminum uprights and the 2001-2002 have steel uprights. For 10k into it you will be beating F430s, Gallardos, E60 M5s. It's a great car. I enjoy driving this car way more then my E46 M3.
After investing around 10k in just parts and maintenance back in 2008, I haven't touched anything else. Tires and oil changes are the only thing I've replaced. I've been stage 3 since I bought the car. The engine can hold 100 Hp/rod without building the engine.
All cars cost money if they aren't taken care of properly. Had a 2.8 B5 A4 and hate myself everyday for selling it for so cheap. B5's are the perfect sized 4 door car and have a lot of potential with very little work.
what do you mean you don't want a V8...
i think it's worth it to get one. seeing how many sources you have here on the 4, im sure you'll be in good hands with any questions. good luck and let us know if you get it!
