Blah Blah Blah Luke bought another car because he's insane. Cliffs notes: Sold my Mustang to Vroom as they made me an offer I couldn't refuse (and the payments were killing me), not sure if I'm keeping the beater Mercury or not but it's paid off and in mint condition mechanically so we'll see. Decided to buy this for a good "all-arounder" and because I heart all things Audi:

2013 Audi S4 Prestige
Monsoon Grey Metallic/Black leather with Alcantara inserts
2 owner car with 55k miles on it, absolutely mint inside and out for how old it is. Carfax showed tons of maintenance had been done over the years and the car has PPF already on the front, tinted windows, and near new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires all around so clearly whoever owned it liked it. Already ordered a CTS Turbo CAI and resonator-delete downpipes (thing is quiet AF), will go IE Stage 1 for the tune soon enough. Yes, it's a DSG (super hard to find a manual and they're significantly slower anyway). Honestly, I LOVE it...Did pretty good on my 1st Dragy pass, too

Very nice, congrats!

I'm wondering if my move to Florida will have me ditching the Tiguan. Who the hell needs an AWD SUV in Florida?!

Haha thanks. Yeah and that was with launch control, surprised it didn't do a bit better. BUT, I'm definitely happy with it and it's officially faster than my S3 was which was surprising because that car somehow felt faster, but maybe it just has shorter gearing. Who knows, but this thing definitely scoots. Can't wait to tune it, though!
Sidenote: I checked the "Launch Control Counter" with VAG-Com after the test drive: 2
Number of launches I did on the test drive: 2
LOL

awesome pick up !!! Audi product always looks so good!

Our 4Runner is 4wd and I do use it at times, some roads are not paved and only way to get to the good spots are to take those paths.

wife’s passport is fwd,

I drove one a while back and it did not feel nearly as stout as the 2 DSG's I've driven. Also I saw a guy on the B8 S4 Facebook group post timeslips of his manual S4 with the "dual pulley" setup (replaces both the Supercharger and Crank pulleys, basically like "stage 3" for these cars) and only ran like 12.5. Maybe he can't drive but Stage 1 (tune only) DSG cars typically do 12.0-12.4's from what I've seen. Dual Pulley DSG cars are deep into the 11's.

Vogz Vogz was in the high 11’s with his B8 S4 manual. That guy can’t drive.
