My wife used to own an A4 2.0T before getting her Land Rover. Obviously, it's a different car from the s4, but I was completely turned off by Audi in the 2 years we owned it. Numerous mechanical problems and fit/finish issues - ie switches breaking, trim snapping, latches breaking - the list goes on and on. I don't know if the s4 and a4 having similar steering, but if so, the Audi was definitely numb. Audi interiors are more luxurious, but after two year of ownership, it just felt like a poorly built car. I've heard enough stories from friends to make me believe that this was not an isolated experience. My 2c. I'd personally get a 550, if you are looking for comfort and torque.
