"B6 S4 has a timeless shape. There's simply no other car besides B7 S4/RS4 that meets the flowing criteria: v8, awd, sedan, manual transmission. Luxury sport compact sedan with infamous Quattro, manual transmission and that 4.2L V8 - what more could you ask for. This car makes a perfect year round daily driver. I mostly use it for my daily duties, some spirited drives on Tail Of The Dragon as well as some real fun at the track and occasional trip to a nearby strip for some quarter mile passes. This car really knows it's way around snow. I've been through several heavy North East snow storms and it plows like a tank no matter what the weather throws it's way. The B6/7 S4 is reliable if properly taken care of. So don't think you could skimp out on regular maintenance and get away with it like you would on Toyota. Take care of your car properly and it will of you 365 days a year, I guarantee it! Best advice I could give to prospective buyers is to do you homework before you get into something like this German high-performance sedan. Research and really get to know what you're going to commit to. Good luck and have fun with this beast!"
