Default Picked up a new DD...

Well, I missed having a nice sedan to cruise around in. I knew I wanted AWD and a manual. Fast forward to this past Monday, I decided to give Audi another go (Some may remember I bought Steves old Imolla Yellow RS6 but at the time I had this fascination with RWD and fishtailing so it just didn't fit the bill).

So anyways, I found a really clean 2 owner full service history 04 S4 through Straightline. I brought it to Autoscope for a PPI and it came back cleaner than any other car I have previously purchased pre-loved. Not to mention my surprise when Steve told me he knows the PO. It's definitely been well cared for! This makes me happy since now I can go straight to modding it! lol. Currently it has lowering springs, Borla exhaust and VMR 710 wheels. Not a bad start...

Anywho, I'm loving every time I drive this little beast... It's certainly not very fast but it sounds great, handles better than I expected and is quick enough for a DD use. I'll use the Lambo when I need a real speed fix.

A big thanks to Steve Fordham and the crew at Autoscope for helping me make sure this would be a trouble free purchase!!

A few crappy pics... I'll get better ones soon.

Cool pick up, I really miss the seats in that car, they were awesome.

Thanks guys! Already ordered a RS4 shift knob, LED plate lights and AWE pedals for some better heel toe action...

Great car. My stepdad used Straightline when he purchased his AMG there. Seemed like a good group of guys, and they gave him a fair price on the 997TT he traded in.
