S4 is a totally different beast - quicker than the ST, but less involving and nowhere near as much fun to drive. I find myself missing the little things on my ST, like keyless entry/start and the DAB. The Audi was a bargain, though, and definitely better for the winter if the weather goes bad.Nice cars the Audi s4 and great for the winter. How does it compare to the ST
What happened to your ST mate did the engine get hyrdrolocked?
It's cat d and I have asked for a price to buy it back - not sure if I've the spare time or space to go this route, though ...If you could I would see if you could buy it back (if written off) and fit an. RS engine. Even if its cat c (costs) its not like its been bounced in and back out of a ditch
Thanks for the input, Neil - have to say, you're more helpful than my insurers (who shall remain nameless for now). Will definitely give you a call/pm for the next one ...Oh Christ mate you must be gutted.
If you still wanted to keep the ST and avoid it being declared a write off.
Have you considered seeing if your insurer would do cash in lieu of repairs and then you could take the money and potentially pay a visit to one of the tuners to fully rebuild the engine with uprated pistons etc....you could even look at the RS engine swap?
You may get a lot more for your money going to a tuner than an insurance companies garage.
I think it may be around 10% of the pay out as we have bought cars back for buttons one of which was an 04 audi A4 tdi for £450. The payout was £4300. May be worth a call thoughYes, mate - funnily enough (funny-peculiar, not funny-ha-ha), this was the reason I missed the RR where I was hoping to get a before- measure of performance prior to modding and going to Stage 2.
