Title: my new 2001 s4
Post by: bret on March 28, 2009, 11:58:35 PM
Hey all,

After a bit of a fiasco with the bank because of the storm i finally picked this up saturday morning :D i've been searching for a replacement for my mr2 for a while now and finally decided to just go for it with the S... Sorry for the crappy phone pics, when the roads dry off i'll give it a good wash and get some vanity shots  ;)

All stock except for the tint.

No real plans - i'd like to keep it as stock as possible - maybe a set of summer wheels/tires or something.

thanks :) i totally got to the top of the snow piles but i didn't want to embarass any scout owners so i deleted the pictures.

it needs a couple of small things but it's pretty solid. PO tinted the side markers and broke a clip on the passenger side and i caught a rock in the freakin driver's fog lamp already :( hopefully shouldn't be too hard to replace.

The hood does have a couple of rock pits that are through the paint - anyone know if i can do anything for them? also i can only notice it at really low volume but i think the passenger door speaker is blown...

my mr2 is quite a bit faster..makes the S seem a bit sluggish - Feels kinda funny saying that about an s4 but I love the gadgets, size and feeling of this car so far.. I hope to keep it for a very long time:) prices have really dropped on them though... I couldn't resist any longer..

Nice!  I went from an MR2 Spyder hardtop to the 01 A4 so we're kinda similar except you're more balla. ;) :P
