He loves hanging out with me in the garage. He already has his Cozy Coupe, Cozy Truck, and Fire Engine.

I'm several years away, but I think it makes it much better.

Trust me once you have been in a Z4MC you will never look at the S2000 the same again. Night and day my friend and I even had $25000 in mods on my S2000. Z4MC is just in a different league and so is the E92 M3. Love your garage. That is fitting for a Gallardo and Porsche Cayenne.

GLWS though!

nice collection.
I drove the S4; it is a well refined, amazing car. Thought about getting one, but couldn't see myself in one.

How does the S4 feel compared to the M3 in terms of handling and interior?

Which is a better DD?

Nice purchase btw!

I guess that's why I spend most of my time in the garage messing around with cars.

I thought long and hard about keeping the S2000 and modifying it again, but I grew tired of driving down the highway in it. I've had an S2000 for the better part of the last ten years as a daily driver, so I got pretty much the opposite of it with the S4.

The S4 is a better DD. This is also amplified as I have a loaded S4 and pretty basic M3. The M3 is also catless.

The S4 feels much stiffer and more nimble than my wife's A4, but it really doesn't compare to the M3. You can really feel the weight difference and RWD makes the M3 much more fun around the few bends we have in FL.

I do like the S4 better on the highway or from light to light (hence making it may daily driver). The torque difference makes the S4 fun to mash the pedal off the line. Also, you don't have to worry about spinning the tires. This is only going to be amplified as I just ordered GIAC tune and AWE Exhaust and Intake. I suspect the S4 is going to be considerably faster than the M3 up to about 120+mph. I hope to take them both to the dyno and maybe run them against each other.

The S4 should have about 390 awhp and 341 awtq at about 4,100ish pounds vs. the M3 at around 370 whp and 270 wtq but at 3,600ish pounds. Should be fun.

Thanks for the brief review man! Enjoy your S4.

Yeah. I could certainly imagine how that would be the case. Plenty of golf to go around!


My wife and I will be driving my E92 328 down and staying for a couple of days during the first week in April. I'll keep an eye out for the S4 and M3!

If you go to the movie theater in Lake Sumter Landing, I'm sure you'll see one of my cars parked in the "dent free zone."

Glad to see I am not the only one that spends too much on Griots Garage products.
