Hello all,

I realize that perhaps this is not the best forum for an unbiased discussion, but as one other poster mentioned, I am impressed by the civility and maturity of most of the regulars here!

Basically, I'm in the market for a "high performance" sports sedan, and want your thoughts on these 2 cars.
My favorable observations of the 2 cars:

M3:
-Sportier feel
-Much more appealing/aggressive exterior styling (I know..very subjective)

S4:
-Quattro
-Seemingly more value for the buck (in terms of features, options, etc.)
-Comparatively cheaper and easier to modify (a simple chip upgrade from TAP boosts bhp/torque by ~80 each!)

Basically, it would be used as a daily driver (future family car?) and a fun "weekend warrior" when the SO is out of town...

Thanks in advance for any responses, and my apologies for bringing up what must be a tired, repeated subject!

Steven

P.S. On a slightly different note, is there ANY possible way to convert your car's transmission to a clutchless manual? Does anyone know of tuners that specialize in this, and whether manual or automatic is better suited for this conversion? (I'd imagine it to be manual)
