Just picked up an Audi RS4

Sorry been gone for few months now but been poping up visiting every now and then, been bc with my little girl & few months ago i picked up or rather continue payment on my boss 2008 audi RS4, he just got a new ZR1 sweet car so he asked if i wanted to continue it so i say hell yeah. It only has 18,xxx miles on it and a 1 1/2yrs more to pay, dont get me wrong im still getting the FR-S or BZR when the time comes. I haven't pushed it yet not even seen moutain road but hope this will keep me happy till i get my FR-S or BZR.

Forget the FR-S! Those RS4's are beasts!!!

I got to drive most of the RS models at an Audi road show not too long ago. I can tell you, you're one lucky guy!!!

No i will as soon as finish paying it off, nothing much thou its a weekend car plus it has a lot of grunt from the V8 as it is, maybe start with better wheels, tires then coilovers, I've been eyeing a carbon rotors, pads and clutch as soon as the oem runs out. I'm not sure if I'll put a catback on this its already loud as it is.

Sweet ride man congrats! I wish Audi would've stuck with those Cosworth v6 Biturbo engines from the B5's but the V8 isn't too shabby. I would definitely still consider an FRS. IMO everyone should have an AWD and a RWD.

RS4 is great!

but for me I would totally hate to beat on it and take it to the track.
RS4 is more of a town car for me and keep clean .....If i do own an RS4

...now RS3 that's what I want...perhaps the NEXT generation. I hate the exhaust pipe on that thing...

I still want to try this car on the track, that's why they build cars like this so you can have fun on the track and still drive it daily with a baby seat on the back lol.

Ah shit!! So it's a performance shop then!! I've seen some nice cars outside and inside the showroom and it never dawned on me what it is.

btw, have you checked out that new brewery right across the street? Green Flash. They are supposed to be very good!
