Boys/Girls I have a bit of a problem.....

My car is great, but with 185k on it things are starting to wear out. My question......fix everything and customize what I want for, let's say, $7500? Or sell it, put the $7500 into an S4 and do it all over again with the S?

If I got the S4 I would probably keep for a long while and eventually convert it into an RS4 saloon. I know that's expensive, but it would be a project car.

What would you do?

I have noticed a trend. 99% of these threads say.....should I sell my car and step into a S4. I would say Pull the A4 motor and do a full build.

How about 2.0t and make the rest of the car truly unique. Make it yours, like no one else's. I myself consider the S4 more of a lateral move. Considering how old the B5 chassis is. A4 or S4 is stepping into a car that is going to need maintenance work. Just the biproduct of a 6+ year old car. If your going to get a new car. I say step out of the B5 chassis. If you want to build the shit out of a B5, stick with what you got. Whole new world of hurt if you get a S4. Many more questions before you can really be comfy with the car. Just my opinion

I agree....it is a lateral move, and it is asking for A LOT more work just because of the layout and stuff....but I've always wanted an S4. The B5's look sweet. Eventually, if I made a B5 RS4 saloon, almost the entire car would be brand new. The 4 is good, but the 6 is quieter, smoother, all that stuff.

I know most of this is semantics but the S4 that I buy I'm sure will need some work and then to make it an RS4 is going to be at least $15G's.......I'm thinking for some of the changes I want to make I should just buy a 2000-2001.5 A4/S4 and work with that.

Stupid cars! Why did I have to be a car guy! Son of a B$%*h!!!
