Yup. Just like owning a BMW or Mercedes.

Audi and VW are Hitler's way of getting back at the people.

I better watch out since I'm Jewish...I don't want any part of Hitler, y'know? Back to the Honda S2000 listings.


For a V8 powered Audi S4 you'd have to go back to at least the 2009 model year. After that (starting in 2010) the S4 went to its new 3.0 liter 333 horsepower V6 engine. Having said that, a good used 2009 S4 might have 90K miles + on the odometer. You definitely won't find a "certified pre-owned" V8 S4 from an Audi dealer, but you might find a private seller. If the seller has good maintenance records and you have it checked out by a reliable mechanic, a 2009 S4 might be a good deal...depending on the price, of course. You decide.


Oh ya, I have one and they are definitely expensive to maintain, but they are fun as hell. For one there are very few after market parts made for Audi's, unlike honda's, and toyota's, and even beamers and lexus's. Therefore, so you basically are having to order every part you may need down the line from Audi itself, which means it will be a solid part, but it will also just be expensive as all hell. Haha!
