You won't see any big discount on the new S4 for awhile.They'll probably want list initially.

Who cares if they want list. That's still a much better offer. I'd take that over an e92 for sure.

For the S4 vs 335i, it looks like the other way around.

With shit suspension, 17" wheels, no bluetooth, no heated seats, etc.

When you equip a 335i sedan to equal a NO OPTION S4, it's actually about the same, if not more.

What you built is not the equivalent to a no-option S4, but yeah, I get your point.

Sure it is.

S4: 18" wheels, real leather/alcantara sport seats with heaters, fold down rear seats, bluetooth, Ipod interface, XM/Sirius, leather "sports" wheel, sunroof, Xenons, homelink, are all standard. So is quattro, but we'll ignore that.

Let me know if that 335i is not optioned similarly. Actually, to make things equal, it should have real leather which would drive the price up further.

You won't believe the S4 MPGs!!!!

Has anyone checked out Audi's website? They published amazing MPG for such a performance.

Manual 18/27 !
7 Speed Auto Shift 18/28 !

We're talking better performance than a 335i, and on par gas mileage with a RWD 328i even with Audi AWD. Absolutly NO GAS GUZZLER TAX.

The Audi is truly impressive based on numbers alone.

And we know the S4 we'll leave a 335i in the dust. + Cost competitive.

Can you say "Have your cake and eat it too?"

Awwww another 328 owner hating on the 335. Cute. Please explain how you came to the conclusion that the S4 will leave the 335i/xi "in the dust"?

If the 335 didn't have a HPFP problem,talk about this S4 would be much less.
The S4 has a nice engine and trans but I don't like the exterior look of the A4.
Too generic for me.

Touche. I thought it was random to have the cold weather pkg but that makes sense.

Because the S4 is faster than the 335i/Xi.

Cool

We've known the S4 beats the 335i on paper and lap test for a while.

But that price is pretty insane, I was expecting 5k north of that.
