My brother in law just sold his S5, and complained that it was to refined. So heavy and no natural feel that he could not enjoy the driving experience. After he drove my STi he really liked the way it felt like a drivers experience. His S5 was too removed from the road to be any fun.

I would assume that the S4 feels somewhat similar. No thanks!

I had a chance to play around with an S4 a while back. Really fast in a straight line, but too heavy to corner. It kinda understeered and leaned. Still its an audi and they are soft and comfy no mater how sporty lols

T stands for supercharged, look it up

Seriously though, probably just a carryover from the 2.7T of a few years back... They stuck with the T theme, rather than calling it a 3.0S, which would probably confuse the A6 buyers that most of these motors are destined to belong to.

Really though, a turbo is a supercharger, but a supercharger is not a turbo.

lol yes, they kept with the "T" theme. 1.8T, 2.0T, 2.7T, 3.0T.. It makes sense to them. As far as them being pigs, yes. No way around that. But the power they put out and the untapped power that is just one reflash away.. very very sexy cars.

so sad to see the V8 go by the wayside, i know most of the power numbers are still the same (or in some applications better), but the sound can never be replaced

nothing beats the sound but the B8 S4 is a much better car in many ways.

love the monsoon...so close to daytona gray. honestly, if they were as reliable as a suby, I'd have no issue buying one. I took one out and it felt pretty nice, not as nimble as the rex, but definitely more plush. I was so close to getting one in sprint blue!
