Here's a curve ball...since this thread is more or less debating Kate Upton vs Adriana Lima what do you guys think is the *worst* value in the segment?

I'd have to go with the Lincoln MKS (pains me to say this, like the MKZ much more) since you are paying 45k base for a Taurus. The Acura ISX is pretty much a Honda civic for 30k. I spent a lot of time working on a IS250 and cannot imagine how crappy the base Lexus ES drives.

Edit: Back on topic, this is a nice piece on the S4 and its relation to VW's other luxury brands, although Chris Harris is sort of an S4 fanboy.

Um... an S4 made to the config i like is 62,695. The dealership i live near is filled with asshats who only like the cars because they sell em. They will take 1k off and throw in audi care.

The 335i i want is 55,095. That is with DHP, Msport, and all the goodies. The BMW dealership will give me around 2902 off the car. now onto the lease.... If i remember correctly i think I am around 500 with 5k down. The S4 I was around the 700s....

If I was going to lease an S4 by payments I would be comparing the car to an M3 with Nav, Premium, and Competition package.

Looked at the S4. The following were factors in my decision:

* The A4/S4 is looking very dated now. Compared to the brand new F30, it just feels like you're buying a used car.
* Technology. LOVE the various technologies associated with the F30...it's a brilliant car.
* Driving Dynamics. The S4 is a very sporty car, and the power is impressive. However, the 328i in Sport is also very sporty but I can switch it to Eco Mode and it's perfect for my commute. It's nice to have both in the same vehicle.
* M-Sport Steering Wheel. 'Nuff said.

In total agreement.

"Looked at the S4"? For what? Overpriced VWs don't impress me, and, having owned an Audi in the past, I'll never even consider another one.

I used that same phrase about VW's on here last year. Almost got lynched by two Audi fans. http://www.f30post.com/forums/showth...676638&page=10

Eh, according to Chris Harris an S4 is a repackaged Bentley -

Canada invoice pricing
335i xdrive
premium package
msport package

S4 Premium
sport differential

they both have the same invoice price. But the audi dealer only gave me like 4% off MSRP while BMW gave me 7% off MSRP. so i took the bmw. i liked the audi interior more then the f30 tho.

Sounds about right, only difference is the Audi doesn't have sat radio and keyless entry while the BMW doesn't have heated seats. Alcantara vs dakota is preference and you get the Audi cheaper if you go 6MT.
