In Reply to: SC'd 98 M3 or MTM chipped S4? posted by Wyatt on February 09, 2000 at 12:18:25:

: I have the opportunity to buy a good low mileage 1998 Supercharged M3. What are your experiences with that car. Any problems?

: The other option is to buy a 2000 Audi S4 and equip it with H&R Coilovers and the MTM Stage 3 upgrade. With a Stage 3 upgrade the S4 will be using all stock turbos running at only 1 bar of boost with a turbo back exhaust. This mod will make 350 horsepower. With all wheel drive I expect that 0-60 will be in the 4.8-4.9 range (based on the fact that people have been getting 5.0-5.2 times on chipped 305-320 HP S4's). I know this might not be quite as fast as a supercharged M3, but what about reliability. It is my feeling that the Audi might hold up better in the long run. Any opinions welcome. I am not sure which way to go. With all the S4 mods listed above + the car, price would be about 45-46K. Thanks,
: Wyatt

The only area the S4 compares is straight line speed. The M3 has been proven to be an all around better car & more reliable. Take a look at reliability records of the Audi's, not close to BMW. The S4 is a good car, but the M3 is a proven great car....

No flames thoughts..

99 M3, 18" ACS Type III B&B, Dinan Airbox, Clear Corners,
