If you can go for the 8.5, I think the 8.5 makes the 8 look hella old in comparison. Also save your money for an APR Ultracharger and all accompanying goodies.

Used to own one of these things... had an APR pulley, chip and intake and it was a lot of fun. Took a Mercedes C400, C450 amd C43 for a rip when I worked for Benz and it was a far superior car!!! I would take the c class over an S4 any day. Both are Great cars but the c400 handled and drove better and the interior quality was far superior. Lots of C400 coming of lease now for decent CPO deals!

I cant remember who owned it but I got a ride in one when we shot the vid for the b8 exhaust kit. Shits fast yo and it wasn't even tuned I don't think. Are you guys tuning the newish 328i yet?

Mercedes are for old people.
BMW for young douche nuggets.
Audi is for handsome devils.

AMG is for old people who like to stunt on people with Audi and BMW.
///M is for young douche nuggets who have bitcoin and/or good job because they went to university and concentrated on their future.
S is for handsome devils who like cars that age well and outperform non AMG and non ///M cars and live in BC and drive their car in the snow.
RS is for VW enthusiast who finally reached financial success and have also reached the pinnacle of their enthusiast career. #rs6avant>all

Previous Gen AMG C63 would be sweet. B8 look dated compared to the updated B8.5 in terms of headlights. I think the 2012+ S4 has a better mechatronic unit. Or get a 6spd. The one you posted has e-codes too, which is nice, because the north american headlights look so ugly with the orange reflector inside the housing.

If I could afford an AMG car I wouldn't even bother stopping at red lights so the S4 owners couldn't give me their aids.

Agreed, S4 owners share marijuana needles.
