10K Friday: 1994 Audi S4 v. 2000 Audi S4

Okay, so this isn’t the first time I’ve written up a S4 face-off, but it’s an interesting question to me. That’s because right now, clean examples of the C4 S4 are on their way up, while prices of the B5 S4 have come down and stabilized at levels that seem to be very reasonable. Compared to their equivelants from both Mercedes-Benz and BMW, both are priced very reasonably and you get a lot of performance value for your money. You also get all-wheel drive capability, a luxurious and quiet highway cruiser, a car capable of carrying 4 adults, and both a near limitless tuning potential; both are certainly capable of 600 to 1,000 horsepower, if you’re willing to foot the bills. So which would you rather have? The two in question today are quite different; a turned up C4 S4 versus a 1 owner, all original B5 – let’s start with the C4:

2004 Audi TT Roadster 3.2 S-Line

Okay, so it’s not exactly convertible weather here in New England, but the dreary weather of late has me wishing for a bit more sunshine and warmth, and what better way to invigorate the morning than some wishful thinking. In this case, it’s in the sunshine-loving and retina searing form of an Imola Yellow Audi TT. This is perhaps one of the rarest first generation TTs available and was as expensive as they came, with the 3.2 VR6 and DSG dual-clutch transmission in S-Line Roadster form. As if that wasn’t enough, this particular model is also basically brand new, with a scant 17,000 miles covered in nearly 10 years. If you long for a new king of the Mk.1 TTs at a cut-rate price, this may be the perfect opportunity:

This example is nearly perfect throughout and comes impeccably maintained and fully documented.

This TT has been fully serviced since day one and is ready to be enjoyed.

Please call for more information on this stunning Roadster 267.934.2347

Perfect throughout sure sums up how this TT looks, and while the sticker price – a cool $22,000 – sounds like a lot for a early TT, the reality is that the condition of this car probably warrants the price. I’m not a huge fan of the Celebration wheels and wish this had the rare 19″ 3.2 multi-spoke wheels instead, but since they’re in perfect condition I’m not sure that’d be a deal breaker. The real question is if you’d want Imola Yellow – in all honesty, if I were in the market for one of these I think I’d hold out for the equally rare Papaya Orange color. Despite this, the opportunities to get into a car of this condition for this money won’t be frequent, and considering the rarity and condition I don’t think the price is all that outlandish. Now, where’s the sun?

2007 Audi RS4

Love fast Audis but want something a little more special for your money than this week’s Imola Yellow S4? How about the Audi RS4, one of the best sport sedans to be produced in recent memory? There are few complaints to be levied against the RS4 except that Audi refused to bring us the Avant version. Other than that, we got the sedan or cabriolet versions, both with the splendid and high-revving V8 soundtrack, aggressive flares and gaping grills to remind you of how special this ride is. Like most of the modern Audis, my main complaint is the snooze-fest color pallet most were ordered in – black, grey, greyer, silver, or silverier. However, there were some enterprising individuals who looked past the grey-scale color options and checked the charisma box when ordering their special car – such is the case with this Imola Yellow 2007 example.

Seriously, if you’re going to be shouty about how fast your fast car is, you might as well go out like a lion. Imola Yellow will never be confused with anything subdued, but in many ways it matches the character of the car. The engineers wanted you to smile, they wanted you to feel special, and they wanted to brighten your day; yellow just expresses those desires outwardly. This RS4 certainly appears well cared for, though as typical for an Ebay dealer no maintenance history is offered, and as these have crested 5 years old, you’ll want to know that. Imola Yellow and Sprint Blue are also two of the more rare colors to find these RSs in, so they often command a premium, though in this case I think the premium is too much. Indeed, the dealer seems to agree; if you follow the link to their pictures you’ll find the car has a lower price tag by $1,000 on the windshield. Even with that discount, this RS doesn’t have particularly low miles compared to other examples yet is still a substantial $4,000 – $5,000 premium over others. Heck, look hard enough and you’ll find a RS4 for nearly $10,000 less than this one – but it won’t be yellow. Maybe that’s okay with you, but if you want the wild child colors, for now you’ll have to pay.

2011 Audi S4

While we typically focus on older iron, there are some new cars that have come out which are prime enthusiast candidates now coming to the used market. One of the most impressive of these has to be the Audi B8 S4. While Audi fans mourned the loss of the great 4.2 V8 and RS4 models, the reality is that the B8 S4 was a return towards the origins of the model; forced induction, lighter weight, and a slightly more subdued exterior look. There were added benefits with the B8 chassis too; the most modern electronics and Audi’s increasing reliance on racing to sell the brand has resulted in vehicle dynamics that result in – out of the box – probably the best handling sedan Audi has ever offered here, with the possible exception of the RS4. While most of these electronic nannies are disliked by enthusiasts, the reality is that for 99% of drivers it will make them faster and safer. The major problem with the S4, in my mind, is that far too many of them are specified in black, silver or white; if you’re going to get one of these very special cars, why not get it in a very special color, like today’s rare Imola Yellow 2011:

What you’re getting here is effectively a brand new Audi with an exhaust upgrade and a $10,000 discount. For enthusiasts, this car was specified with the sports rear differential, and that Stasis exhaust will certainly make your car stand out a bit more if the retina-burning color wasn’t enough. If you assume these cars aren’t good turners, you haven’t been in a recent Audi. They are impressive and easily on par with BMW in terms of driving dynamics, period. If you’re a fan of Chris Harris, then you have probably seen what this car is capable of, too – with a simple computer flash, the B8 S4 is able to keep up with a RS4 all the way to top speed. Impressive? It sure is, and at $43,000 it seems pretty appropriately priced for level of performance and luxury this car is able to deliver.

2003 Volkswagen GTi 20th Anniversary Edition

A few weeks ago, I wrote up a few R32s in a comparison in which I declared that the GTi 337/20th Anniversary Edition body kit looked better. Today’s car is a perfect example of that; combining the awesome looking OZ Aristos under those hunkered down Mk.4 GTi arches is just about perfect. The front spoiler, side sills, and rear bumper cover integration aren’t the best designed ever, but they’re reasonably clean and didn’t fuss the lines like the R32 items did in my mind. No one would accuse the Mk.4 of being a light beast, but the GTi certainly looks lighter than the R32 without that gaping front bumper, and it was at least in part. Today’s example looks great in Imola Yellow with those comfy Recaros:

I had the pleasure of driving one of these almost new at Watkins Glen International race track. In stock form, it was impressive around the track – plenty of scoot, hugely composed at triple digit speeds, and with plenty of brake and grip. It was easy to drive quickly and didn’t give much up to the much more powerful Audis and BMWs that were my company on the track. Most of these 20th Anniversary Editions have been modified heavily, so it’s nice to see one reasonably stock – though this example has quite a few miles, it appears to be in good shape overall. I think it’s pretty reasonably priced under $8,000, too – with recent maintenance, good overall condition and rarity of the Imola 20th AE, this would be a pretty reasonable way to introduce some hot hatch to your daily commute!
