So which year is the best? I can surmise that the best year was 01.5' or 01'. But since I can't find one at the moment I can settle for a 2000. And as Deanna_S4 pointed out the 00' does not have a traction control button is this correct?

Does anyone know of a chip available for a 2007 B7 S4? I've checked the APR website and it just shows 2006 S4's but nothing for the 2007. Am I too early in expecting a chip to be out since the 2007 is to new? It seems to take a few years for the "aftermarket upgrades" to come out. Any guidance would be great!

06/07 are identical, both B7 there are chips out as the B7 has been out since 2005 now, not a new model. In fact a new one comes out for 09

01.5's have the esp button, and they have the new s4 badge on the trunk. the grill style though is the same as the older style. i have a 2001.5 s4 and no polished mirrors. my car is registered and titled as an 02, even in my insurance. also on all parts websites it stays as 2000-2002 for the years of the b5. so consider it an 02, everyone else except us is ignorant of the difference

These guys make THE best shifters on the market plus they have a lot of replacement and OEM parts in stock. Oh and they have helpful DVDs for timing belt jobs and tranny rebuilds. Great tech support too.

They are both reliable cars if you take care of them. Some S4 parts will be more $ just because there are ten billion 1.8t out there. If you want easy reliability buy a civic or a camery. But if you're willing to put the time into it buy an audi and drive something you'll enjoy. The A4 and S4 have their quirks and thanks to forums like this we know what they are and how to fix them. So i guess what i'm saying is, get your hands dirty and enjoy the payoff or buy something you'll never have to fix and never enjoy. These are enthusiast cars, so you've got to give em some love.
