Yes I did. Power is not a priority for the daily driver anymore. My galant and eclipse were much more powerfull than the s4. S4 was pretty quick especially after the few mods I did to it. The problem with audi and especially s4's are fairly expensive when it comes to parts and labor. For example my AC compressor went bad. Bill came to $2200. Thank to warranty I only paid the $100 deductible.
And as of late more and more are having issues with cylinder scoring and timing components. New timing stuff is around 4k plus labor to remove the motor. A new block is somewhere around 10k. I didn't want to deal with any of that once the warranty expired.
