    More Close Encounters of the S4 Kind

    The S4 is a beautiful machine I love that damn car...but after today, I love to race against them too

    I'm with my parents on the way to dinner and in my rear view mirror, I see some familiar looking HIDs. Soon enough, a sexy blue S4 passes me on the left. As fate would have it, we both had a red light. We line up and I look over at the young guy driving. We both smile at each other and as soon as the light turns green, we gun it.

    Even with my slushbox, I pulled ahead for about 2 seconds before he regained the lead. I thought to myself "Oh boy, it's over now" but although he pulled ahead, I was still pretty much on his tail...he couldn't get more than a half a car length ahead of me. Considering I had a slushbox, extra weight, and my heater and defroster on, I was ecstatic! Once we hit about 80 I let off the gas, and he let off too. He let me pull up next to him and I waved to him. He waved back and we turned off to head to the restaurant.

    After this...my dad wants to get an S4. w000t! Unfortunately he'll probably get the slushbox version, but who cares? Maybe I'll have a WRX and an S4 to drive!

    Sup Ver,



    Did you happen to brake Torquge the car to around 3700 RPMS before launching?? If the race happened like you said, and you would have brake launched the car, u would have beaten him to at least 80

    My friend has a WRX and I have an S4. They are both very different to drive, but both really fun cars to drive and equally rewarding. If I wasn't looking for a bigger car, I would make a WRX a second car when it's time to replace my fiance's car. Maybe the Blitsen (or whatever it is called) will be here by then
