Going from a B5 S4 to S2 Avant

Hey,

While i'm not getting bored of the S4, I've really been thinking about selling up and getting Dest's old Ruby S2 Avant..

What will I miss most (apart from the usual repair costs ) I'm loving the torque of mine, the sound, comfort (ish) and sleeper-ness of the Noggy, will i feel let down everytime I go for a drive..?

I feel it's cheaper for big power with the S2 aswell, Dest's old one already has a few of the mods i'd do, remap to 280ish, Boost hoses, brakes and Exhaust.. Am I wrong?

Can someone talk me out of it..?

I've got both and there's something very nice about the way the S2 5 pot makes power and the sound is great. I've been driving S2s and URs since the mid 80s so I'm biased, they have character in spades.. They're also really easy to work on and it's not hard to  get fairly big power.
I've just bought my first B5 RS4 though and I like it for different reasons. The engine spins up a bit like a motorbike, like there's less moving mass in there, it's a bit of a howler, it pulls from nothing (but so does a stock S2 on the K24 with a remap)  and the steering is very sweet.

I've just sold my fairly stock S2 Avant to get the RS4 and I've kept the coupe which is an early 3B running something around 450HP on a GT3071R and is a bit of a beast

Is there any way you could get a drive of one before you make the decision?

I was interested in that S2 when it was for sale before, then it was about 25 miles away, now it's over 400, I think it's done around 180k and while I know they can take the miles I'd wouldn't be suprised if something broke if I used it hard.

I have a real soft spot for 5pots and straight through exhausts.

Any pics of said car?

Sorry mate, I missed this post  
This was my old one













As for straight through exhausts, my old blue one had one!

Ahh well, My facination lasted all of a week..

I'll keep my B5 S4 for now, and buy a Volvo to 5-pot later next year

Ben, if you buy an S2 Avant, I will be your friend.
