    There is a video on youtube where a well known car reviewer drives all of the s4's and compares them to each other. He really likes the 2004 one and loved the engine.

    Chris Harris reviewed the newest RS4 and compared it to the B5 and B7. Youtube is blocked at work, otherwise I'd link it. It's on the Drive youtube channel.

    *edit* here you go

    Anyone here ever have experience with importing a car into the US? Just wondering how much of a headache it would be to get a used RS4 Avant into the States.

    The period blood red Lexus is vomit inducing, especially since it's been unsuccessfully and garishly modified to make it less of a 40-yr old woman's daily driver.

    The Supra makes up for the offense to the eyes, at least partially. Nice car.

    I finally drove a RHD car - overall, the driving part was easy. No problems with the clearances on that passenger side as I went down small alleys, etc. The lanes on the highways here are incredibly small though, and people actually drive very fast, I think traffic was going about 120kph in an 80 and there were plenty of cars, as you can imagine. I think I drove for about 4 hours yesterday. The only problems I had at first were remembering to get over to the left after making a turn, and then I am not so used to people making lane changes as fast as they do in Asia. It's like Gran Turismo on the hardest setting, except if you crash you actually die. lol. That curbside lane is supposed to be open but there's always people loading/unloading and you really gotta stay out of that lane.
    I just rented a little shitbox from the gas station down the street, only cost $30 plus $10 for insurance. I should rent it more often and practice driving more. I was actually surprised, it looked so crappy (and it was, pretty much - that little 1.3L engine is so rough that the rearview mirror wouldn't stop vibrating and everything I saw in it was a blur) - but this car (Daihatsu YRV turbo, AWD) looked like a Kei car but had the double-sized engine and AWD - drove fairly well, considering. It had lots of grunt out of the toll gates when that tiny turbo spooled up and the grip was pretty decent, lol. I have had that EG Civic hatchback before and I honestly expected the Daihatsu to be equally as shitty a driving experience, but it wasn't. I'd actually want one of these things to cane on all the time if it wasn't so embarrassing looking from the outside.
