What's your thoughts on the car?
Any issues to contend with?

I've had a few S4's over the years, this was my first cab. Generally it just works, usual S4 "questions" (not issues in my mind) of chain rattle worries - but mines got 150K on it and still going well

Front suspension - top arms, standard Audi, but with a V8 in a small car!

The hood motor can fail, easily repaired/exchanged.

Windscreen trims in aluminium - check the condition, new ones are ££££.

In my books, a topless V8 with an manual box, with a couple of seats for little people in the back ticked lots of weekend car boxes

Now debating an RS version, but cant make the man maths work

I've had two S4s and now have an A4 3.0 TDI V6 Quattro cabriolet, love it, its been meteoric lately in bad weather on the all-season tyres, and when we had those two blistering days of sun, she was lovely with the roof down.

I came to this from an S8, having also had the S4s and even an old 80 cabriolet V6 before and its the best of all worlds. 40mpg novelty still hasn't worn off and running costs are super low - even tax is £300ish

I'd totally recommend one, remapped its a different beast altogether and I would say that point to point, I could keep up with a B6/B7 S4 now on account of the torque delivery
