:bye I had an accident with the Type R, so I will be replacing it this week. So, here is my poll question for the day:

Audi S4 or Subaru WRX STI?

I don't want a used Type R, and I do want more power. I live in the Northeast, so AWD is a big plus.

Please sound off about this one!

if its an older style S4 get it. Turbo owns the new v8's


Stis are over rated. Rather have power and comfort

It is a 2001 S4 vs. a new STI. I drove them both today. The Audi was very smooth, very powerful, 250 hp, and quiet, which was an interesting change of pace for me. The STI really snarled, and surged ahead like a bull on steroids, with 300 hp. It was a lot of fun. The Audi is refined, and the STI is raw. I keep going back and forth. I like them both. :confused

there is no way the Audi is 250 hp. I thought they were more like 400hp?

250 is what it is in that year. The new ones have more.

For less headaches... I would go with a new car, STi ...

Besides Audis are a dime a dozen and STi are still kinda rare

I have a set of summer tires for the Type-R, Dunlop SP9000, 195/55/15, which are nearly new, for sale, as well as the stock header and air intake. Please e-mail me at [email protected] for more information or see my post in the SHO classifieds.
Thanks.
