Stasis Engineering Audi S4

It's no e90 M3, but I think this is a pretty cool car. I have read about this company in the past. ECU/exhaust and nice supesnion upgrade with 4yr/50000 mile warranty. Then again, for that price you could get an e90 (while they last).

Not too impressed. Stasis should release an upgraded supercharger for it or modify the existing one.. I'm sure this baby has much potential tho, haven't followed it's tuning development on Audi forums..

Slow time for the quarter, should be around 12.5-.7 range. Still wouldn't prefer one over the M3

so just $3000 extra for the power mods? that's a bargain.

There's a member that has a Stassis tuned Audi S4 and he loves it. I don't blame him, that thing is a beast.

I'd love the car. Perfect alternative for northerners. Let's not forget these S4's are getting 25-30mpg on the highway.

I drove my friends R8 S4 and I found it to be a really soft, spongy, squishy car overall - engine, sound, steering, seating, car interior, ergonomics... yeah the torque is there... but my M3 feels like an aggressive beast of a car.. the seating position in the M3 is so much better, the thick steering wheel is awesome, the engine note is heavenly, handling is much better...

the S4 felt like a soft sponge cake!

I'm glad I picked the M3 over the S4.. Don't really care if the S4 can go 0-60 faster...
