      That is a noisy S/C for this car. You normally can’t hear them when stock.

      I'm seriously considering either a 2016 Lexus IS 350 AWD, or a 2016 Audi S4...thoughts anyone? I know the S4 is decently faster, but I'm also looking at reliability because Lexus is number one as far as reliability goes. How has it been owning an Audi, everyone? Is maintenance expensive? Parts? I'm a heavy aesthetic modder, so those things matter to me lol.

      Exactly why I was thinking Lexus....I drive about 20-30,000 a year.

      If you drive over 15K miles a year get Lexus, ... less than that get the Audi

      It really depends what you want in a car. I find both of those cars to be lacking in a certain way. The is 350 would be a reliable car, but almost zero modding potential. The s4 has more modding potential but I find the s4 rather pedestrian sounding and looking. For me, an e90 m3 with snow tires may be a better solution for you. More driver involvement and a high revving v8 that will always remind you of how special it is. Reliability is very good with those cars with just minor sensors going bad from time to time.

      Its funny you didn't switch the Traction control off. You just switched it to SPORTS. You have to keep pressing the button for 5 seconds then it says OFF. The car rips with that. its 0.2 seconds faster

      yes it has to be scaned by a tech to be flagged TD1, but even if you re-flash it back it will still appear TD1...

      well with it though.  Stasis is gone.  Out of business.  I'm APR.  No piggy back for me.  They can still be detected, just as easily.  I could re-flash back to stock and they would see the counter if they looked.  The on board product doesn't flag it TD1.  It has to be scanned by the tech.  Nothing on board notes it.

      Bigger mandingo In reply to ms3er

      +ms3er yeah and your warranty is completely gone because audi's have software that flag your vehicle when you flash tune. The only way around this is to get a piggy back tune for the s4 and you'll keep your warranty. You can also go the stasis route but the power gains are laughable compared to apr.

      What causes the "crack" on up shifts? I notice it doesn't happen always. It seems to happen on older b8's almost constantly in other vids (dunno if Audi changed something on facelifts)

      +Nate Barry I have eyes and ears :) and precise of it is about 0.2 seconds as I see.
      exactly when sound of engine begins - exactly in this moment 0:24 switched to 0:25.
      0:30 appear even more early - https://gyazo.com/9a0ffa8d420eb09cb3a1d42154a5113a
      57 mph, but ok, maybe 58 mph if we look where arrow pointed.
      means 0-58 mph = 93.3 km/h its 4.9-5.1 seconds.
      4.5sec 0-60 mph its much more faster than 5.0sec 0-58 mph.

      This has a dual clutch, impossible for manual to be faster. It ALSO has dual clutches in the rear axle...how about that?! This car is a technological marvel all around. I love mine.....especially the kicking 14-speaker B&O sound system. Basically the best sound system you can get in a car.....perfectly tight and tuned.....

      If you chip it for $1,500, you can lower the 0-60mph to the low 4s based on the YT video with Chris Harris.  Personally I think 4.6 sec is more than fast enough.

      M cars compete with RS Audis, so not really a comparison to this S4. I also live in the snowbelt. Quattro + Blizzaks = bliss. My old B5 S4 was far more fun in the snow than my wife's 2011 335 XDrive (also on Blizzaks). The XDrive is not so predictable, and can get the rear around the front too easily. The S4 on the other hand would 4 wheel drift with total control all day, even on not so new anymore tires.

      I hear you, its definitely not easy to drive that car in the winter. Thats why its easier to have a winter beater and use the M in the summer which is what I do. I live in NYC so winters here aren't the worst

      The c63 is going to be much harder to afford to maintain and will be nowhere as fun in the turns, and if you live somewhere with snow the audi will be best year round. the cla45 is very nice but not s4 nice for that price. the s3 is going to be fantastic. Id wait for the next gen c class amg before making my decision in which point i feel like i would still prefer audi with its fantastic quattro all wheel drive and extremely great engineering.

      Ive owned two audi's and never had any problems with either of them in 175,000 miles, however the two bmw's my dad owned never ceased to have electrical problems as well as a burnt out turbo, by 90,000 miles, and he never drove them hard. Also BMW's warranty nor mercedes are much better if at all than Audi's.

      VW owns all those companies because they bought them out. That doesn't make them an innovative or quality company, but rather a good business model. But perhaps his comment on quality has to do with audi's having a reputation for constantly needing repairs or that audi comes with one of the worst warranties in the industry. 4 year 50,000 miles is absolute shit compared to everyone else. Beautiful looking and performing, but better to lease than own one so you can still afford to drive one.

      trying to buy my first car (never knew it would be this hard) I really love Audis, same time I disagree your comment about Audi beating Mercedes. Bmw probably they have overpriced vehicles. Im torn on this s4 or the c63 AMG 507 edition...Merc is overhauling the c63 and removing the naturally aspirated v8 :( for 2015; so I may wait for that, even they are releasing the smaller sedan the CLA-45 AMG...check it out!

      Audi is releasing their smaller sedan as well the S3....decisions... decisions.

      I have a Lexus LS460 and my sister has a Camry. On internet I see comments about them saying that Lexus is just a Toyota. No it's not.The Camry is nothing but plastic and my LS is loaded with leather and wood trim. The Lexus is dead silent and I'm gonna admit even the Camry is pretty silent but no where near Lexus. My oldest sister has an Audi A6 but i'm not sure how that compares to Volkswagen because I have never had one in my family. But my cousin has a C300 and I like the A6 a lot better.

      So it takes the new S4 nearly 10 seconds to reach 87mph from zero with LC and my full bolt on 370z 10 seconds to reach 100mph from 0 with a shitty launch and shitty 1-2 shift with a ton of wheel spin. Best part is, I have a video proving it. :)

      Believe me Rizwan, I do live in Germany and I don´t have researches to do about German cars.
      Audi isn´t premium, but MB and BMW are and will always be.
      Audi is full of VW parts, especially the engines.
      I am driving a Passat CC for about 3 years now and I CAN TELL that AUDI/VW is the biggest shit on market.
      Invest your money in a BMW or MB. Superb engines and design, while keeping the price on the market stable even after 4 years
      BTW As far as Diesel, nothing comes close to BMW 40D/35D
