Please talk me out of buying a 2010 Audi S4

I always thought I would get an e92 335 for my next car but this Audi has gotten my attention.

Go.

Why should I talk you out of it? It's a great car, and so far, has proven superior in performance to the BMW. Try something new, go for it.

Very similar performance, both very mod friendly.

Do you value/need AWD?

Coupe or sedan?

Drive them both, see which one you like...

Get some quotes and see what the price difference will be.

I dont need AWD. BMW would be a coupe. Prices are not that different.

Audi has a nicer interior, better tranny (if you get the 7 spd), and an easier power upgrade path IMO. Get the Audi.

Don't buy S4... wait for RS4/5 that will be coming out soon.

If you need a new car NOW, get a used 335. There will be less depreciation then when you trade it in for RS4/5.

I dont need a car now. My bmw is paid off and I guess i'm just bored with it. Rs4 would be more money so I would go M3 at that point. How much do you think Rs4/5 would be? Same as the 08? I wouldn't spend that much.
