    Well, I have come to a fork in the road, a Used s4 or a wrx?

    does anyone know any decent S4 forums?

    I know the Wrx is very mod friendly, is it the same for the s4?

    any opinions will surely help!

    thanks!

    WRX, no questions about it.

    If it was a new V8 S4 I might be inclined to disgaree, but compared to the old 2.7 BiTurbo I would personally go with the Scooby. No bias of course.

    S4, no questions about it. :)
    no bias here either.

    but seriously...if you want to mod it, get the cheaper one. mods for the WRX are a LOT cheaper than mods for the S4

    while they are both awd turbo cars, the wrx and s4 are really different cars for different priorities. what's yours?

    btw, i have an '01 s4 and would not give it up for a modded wrx.

    heres my opnion on the cars:

    Wrx:
    Fast 4 door sedan..

    S4:
    Fast 4 door luxury sedan

    I'd rather go with the luxury... but I also want to mod it..

    Whats more Mod responsive?

    WRX can be made faster, it's cheaper, more reliable...

    S4 is an all-around better car. While not as reliable, it's more comfortable, more rare, and has tons of neat options the WRX doesn't.

    I have a WRX now, and love it to death. It is really easy to mod for pretty cheap. You can get great gains for a lot less.

    But the S4 is elegant, fast, and full of luxery. Its all a matter of taste IMO.

    The gorgeous Audi interior would be too much for me to resist. I love the interior on my 2.7T and the engine is absolute badass. :cool:

    :ugh: sorry but...

    2 turbos > 2 cylinders

    the old S4 is as fast as the new S4 even in stock trim, and with a $500 chip will eat the new ones

    Thats not my point. I based it on the fact that the new S4 is in my opinion a better car in general, and I would much prefer the sound of the V8 S4 (it sounds awesome) to the original 2.7 V6.

    If it had the dough I'd get the 2.7 and RS4 conversion. But overall I agree that the new S4 is better and yes, that V8 does sound awesome. :bowdown:

    These cars are so different. It depends on what you want. I would prefer a less expensive car that I could mod the hell out of and I would keep for a long time as a second car for me only - a toy. Because of this, I would choose the WRX. Its cheaper so its depreciation isn't a big deal, I could mod it without worry because I would keep it long term for my personal uses, and to me its just a more fun car.

    Now, if the car was to be my only transportation and I had a family or had to use my car to carry others around on a regular basis, then the S4 would be the way to go.
