I find options on cars very interesting, especially when they’re options that aren’t often selected. Every once and a while, I’ll sit down and build a car on Audi, BMW or Volkswagen’s configuration tool, all the while trying to figure out what will be the options that 20 years from now someone will pine after, or just even smile to see. Today’s S4 is a great example of just that; indeed, if you look at the window sticker, you’ll note that only two options were selected. One was the 10 Compact Disc trunk mounted changer; it was an option my 1993 V8 quattro had and in retrospect I can’t believe they got away with charging $800 for it – I’m reminded of the scene from The Wedding Singer. But that’s not the option I’m really interested in; no, what I find unique about this car is that it was specified to the no charge 15×7.5 Speedline-made option wheels with all-season tires. For a time, Audi even touted that its 15″ option wheels offered better ride quality than the competition’s huge 16″ rolling gear. It was a rarely selected option, and it’s even more rare to find the car still rolling on those wheels 21 years later:

The Emerald Green Mica is usually mated to the Ecru interior, so it’s refreshing to see a mint condition black interior when the door opens rather than a heavily worn light one. It’s not the color combination that I would choose, but this car presents better than a majority of the Emerald cars that remain. It also appears to be more or less completely stock with lower miles, two more things that are rarely found. The carbon fiber trim is a love/hate on these cars; to me, it’s a bit out of place in a luxury sedan in some regards, but they certainly were early adopters of the trend that continues today and it’s a neat option. Otherwise, this is a near legend already and finding clean examples will continue to be more difficult as prices have begun to creep up. It’s not everyone’s bag of tea, but for a relatively modest investment these Audis offer serious longevity, great build quality, handsome looks and can be turned up for stunning performance that is available year round. There are many who consider this to be the best all around car Audi made, and this car seems like a great starting point for C4 ownership.
