I am about to sell my 2005 GTO with 423 to the wheels and I have a few options. Go with power or go with luxury.

I have been looking around for 2002+ Z06 or looking at a 2000+ S4 the V6 Biturbo.

My problem is that I'll have to pull about a $6-7k loan to get into a Z06 (that is with the GTO money as a downpayment) and with a S4 I can find around $10-$11000. I would then use the rest of the money to build up the car to make it a Stage 3 K04 or put a GT28 Kit on it.

With the Z06, I would keep it stock until the loan is paid off and then do wheels/suspension and go straight into FI.

Good choices? I need something that is reliable and will be fun to drive and have good power.

The Z06 to me is going to be the best mix of looks/power/reliability. There is parts for the car and coming from the GTO, I'll know how to work on the engine. Z06 I would look for a stock low mileage one for around $22-$23k

I got a ride in a Stage 3 K04 S4 today and it was a nice car and pulled all the way and traction wasn't an issue with it being AWD. I don't know how it would compare to a modded Z06 or my GTO right now though, supposedly a stage 3 K04 can pull on a headers/cam GTO. I could find a clean S4 for around $10-$11k and then use the rest from the GTO to either bring it to Stage 3 K04 or save up and go to a GT28 setup but this would be an extra probably $15k into the car. My worry for this car is obviously maintenance costs. This is a GT28 kit vs a K04 Stage 3 S4 to show you the power difference. K04 has about high 300's to all wheels. This is probably the most "bland" car as far as looks out of these cars.

I just thought about a BMW M3 too. I have yet to be in or test drive an M3, but there are a few around the area that are extremly nice. I love the deep dish wheels and they are absolute sex on wheels with just a nice set of wheels and lowered. I don't know how power is with these cars, or how much it is to mod them, but I know the HorsePowerFreaks turbo kit on these are amazing.

I will be working for a Big 4 accounting firm, so I cannot have something that looks "unprofessional"

Price range is around $23k

you can pic up a gt28 kit for about 7k but then you need fueling, like the ko4 setup with larger injectors

He said he wanted something reliable, with that statement put into play, by no means will the S4 even be in contention.

if u have a budget of 23k why would you look at the older s4's you can get into a 2004+ which is alot better of a car. i just bought a 2006 s4 as a daily driver as a fun dad car. and use my single turbo widebody supra 6spd as a weekend car.
