"I love my 6MT B8 S4.. I'ts truly an amazingly built vehicle. The interior is a great place to spend time with it's high quality materials and superior build quality, everything feels over engineered and solid. The 3.0T engine has a lot of tuning capabilities and the aftermarket scene for this platform is incredible. I love every time I get in for a drive, the supercharger whine is intoxicating and it gets off the line quick thanks to the worlds best AWD system, quattro. This is the first vehicle i've been in where the different drive modes actually make a big difference. Driving around in comfort mode, the suspension is soft and the steering is very light, it feels like a nice luxury cruiser until you switch it over into dynamic mode and the car completely changes. The steering immediately feels very heavy and precise, the suspension firms up and the throttle response increases. I came from a CLA45 AMG where comfort mode was a joke as every bump rattled your body and it really changed nothing. I am very impressed with my S4, and I am totally in love with it. If you do get an S4, I would totally go with the 6-speed variant as they are more reliable than the DSG's and so much more fun on back roads. "
