It will depend on the driver. Both cars run pretty close. Even though the S4 has more HP, it also has more weight.
I am talking about the previous gen S4, not the new one, which, in my opinion will get slaughtered like the heavy little piggy it is by a stock WRX.
Both will be hurtin' at the hands of a stock STi.
All of these are good cars though, one's luxury with some performance, one's no luxury but some performance, and one is absolute no-holds barred performance. You have to decide what's best for you.
Many a S4 owner traded in thier cars when the WRX came out. I know this personally...
Holy ICE batman!! Mp3 is cool, nav is cool, nice system is cool....but subs? You into lots of annoying bass that pisses other people off and makes your car make horrible rattling sounds? I hope you're not talking about 4 twelves in da trunk...lol! Sorry i hate the whole subs in the trunk and bass stuff. If thats what ya wanna do then its your car. WORD!!amdmaxx said:nicely said, S60R is NICE and cheap and SAFE..
STi is a perfect fit for me. I am young, 5-7, 150lb, single (with a girlfriend when lucky), so no need for a huge expensive german car..
I will def. throw in a few grand into awesome mp3/nav unit with subs and speakers and crank up trance/hosue/progressive music....
fast, furious, great all seasons, great braking, handling an custom sound with DVD NAV.. all for under $40k.. Cant be beat!!!
Buy a Mustang over an STI...!?!?!?! HURRRRLLLLLL.....BARRRFF.......i...feel....sick.....CoOlSlY said:Check carefully the latest Car & Driver... New S4 it clocked at 5.0s flat... http://audi.805net.com/CD_S4/
Comparing a STi or WRX with a S4 is apples and oranges...
Performance only? Buy a Cobra SVT, change pulley, chip, exaust and you are at about 450HP, a bit more pricy than a STi but will beat the hell out of it at any speed, any time except during winter, mud or rain. Don't want to bash anybody, but comparing a S4 to a STi or WRX is *IMO* non-sense. It's like comparing my Z06 Vette with a Cobra SVT. Similar performance but apples and oranges. I currently have a 03 A4 3.0, a 03 Z06 Vette and the girlfriend, a 02 Nissan Spec-V. Comparing my Vette with my A4 is still non-sense. NOT because the A4 is slower, but the A4 has WAY more stuff other than performance. Compare the seats of the STi with the seats of the S4... Compare the ride comfort... But I agree, performance only will give similar results in a S4 and a WRX.
heheheheheh.....I HATE mustang's with a passion. Everytime i see some N'sync reject, abercrombie N fitch looking mutha luva in one i smoke his butt!!! And i mean SMOKE. I am a very cautious reserved driver on public roads except when i see a stang.....its like a bull seeing red. The only speeding ticket i have was when i destroyed a mustang cobra with a saleen supercharger package. I murdered him...but my dumb butt did in front of a high school with 3 cops in the parking lot. And of course me in the Import got pulled over while the stang went about his business. Peace!!STiFan said:Perfectly said X Japan. But all you really need to say is its a Mustake oops I meant Mustang. 8) I just cant believe how many of them I see on the road not Cobras or GT's but all of them together there is just an unbelievable amount of them on the road. Why would you want a car that everybody has and the GT isnt even that fast. Oh well enough on that give me my STi and I'll be happy
