Were I not the sucker for a V8 soundtrack that I am, I would probably already have owned or currently own one of these cars. Like the M-Sport BMWs, the S-Line Audis can be looked at as the more wallet friendly alternative to their non hyphenated name siblings. While vehicles wearing the roundel are often offer a more dynamic driving experience, Audis are no slouch in the fun department and still offer the quiet kind of luxury that I prefer.
In terms of rolling incognito the A4 S-Line Titanium is perhaps the very definition of the term. The charcoal Ronal wheels aren’t for everyone but I’ve always liked them, so long as they wear a tire with a protective lip. These wheels are prone to curb damage and I’ve seen some badly chewed up ones over the years. Aside from the wheels only a few other cosmetic changes will clue an informed individual into the fact that this is an extra special A4. Blacked out window trim, grille surround and piano black interior trim are all that really separate the Titanium from a run of the mill S-Line. As for the S-Line package, that adds a lower ride height, 3 spoke steering wheel (aka. the one you want) and some S-Line badges that are easily removed, as you see here. The result is a real sleeper that has the potential to be an outright monster given the massive aftermarket part availability for the 2.0T A4. If it was me, I’d leave this thing alone except for an ECU flash to get just that little bit of extra juice for those times when the power hungry side of my personality kicks in.

So as you can see, this is a very clean example of a car that is all too often completely mistreated. Having been an Audi owner and become good friends with the guys at a local shop I can tell you that way too many Audi owners completely disregard service intervals, a dangerous thing to do with these cars. Sure that applies more to the V8 powered vehicles but the 2.0 FSI motors need love on the regular as well. This examples seems to have gotten just that and coupled with the clean exterior it makes for an enticing package. 83,709 miles on the clock is just a drop in the bucket for the award winning motor, its more likely that annoying interior things (glovebox hinge, armrest cover, rear ashtray lid) will be the upcoming fixes. At $16,900 this car is priced fairly but I’d be looking to knock about $2,500 off the asking price just because you could get a decent S4 for the same money. Regardless of the fact that the 4.2L V8 will end up costing you more, the universal nameplate prestige that comes with the S4 justifies the asking price whereas this vehicle is likely to attract enthusiasts who know exactly what it is. The average Joe might happily shell out nearly $17k for this car but I’d only feel comfortable if it was $15k or less.
