Audi RS3 vs Audi S4

Are you in the market for a luxury car that offers the perfect balance of power and performance? Look no further than the Audi RS3 and Audi S4. Both of these vehicles are part of Audi’s high-performance lineup and offer drivers a thrilling driving experience. But which one is right for you? Let’s take a look at how the Audi RS3 and the Audi S4 compare.

For starters, the Audi RS3 is a compact four-door sedan that packs a powerful punch. It is powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that produces 400 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. This engine can propel the RS3 from 0-60 mph in just 4.1 seconds and all the way up to a top speed of 155mph. The RS3 also has a sport-tuned suspension, a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, and quattro all-wheel drive.

In contrast, the Audi S4 is a midsize sedan that is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine. This engine produces 355 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, allowing the S4 to sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 130mph. The S4 also comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission, quattro all-wheel drive, and a sport-tuned suspension.

When it comes to performance, the Audi RS3 is the clear winner. Not only is it faster and more powerful, but it also offers better acceleration and top speed. However, the S4 is the more comfortable and luxurious option, thanks to its spacious interior and higher-end features.

Ultimately, the choice between the Audi RS3 and the Audi S4 comes down to personal preference. If you’re looking for a car that will give you the ultimate driving experience, then the RS3 is the way to go. But if you’re looking for something a bit more comfortable and luxurious, then the S4 may be the better choice.

Paint Protection for Your Audi RS3

The Audi RS3 is an impressive piece of engineering, and it deserves the best protection. Investing in a Paint Protection Film (PPF) will help protect your Audi RS3 from the harshest elements, keeping it looking like new for years to come. The PPF forms a strong barrier against scratches and chips, as well as providing protection against UV rays that can damage the paint over time. If the film does end up getting scratches or swirls in it, when placed in heat, the film will actually heal itself! The PPF also helps maintain the glossy finish of the paint and makes it easier to clean. Additionally, it’s a great way to increase the resale value of your car. Investing in a PPF for your Audi RS3 is a smart move to ensure your car looks great for years to come.

In addition to PPF, we also applied ceramic coating to the exterior of this Audi to give it ultimate protection. Ceramic coating adds hydrophobic qualities to the car as well as an additional layer of light protection, ease of maintenance, and improved scratch resistance.

  • I have used Nathan's in the past for mobile detailing and their work has been superior in every way. I was very excited to hear that they were getting into window tinting as well as 3M clear bra installation. I have a 2019 Dodge Challenger and she is my baby but I had no concerns leaving her in the hands of Nathan's amazing team. After discussing the many options I went with a 50% window tent as well as the 3M clear bra. Nathan's team did a fantastic job!! I could not be happier with how she turned out! Another fantastic job Nathan's I wish I could give more stars!!

  • This is the second time we've had Nathan's out to detail our cars. John did an amazing job on both my daily driver and my summer toy! He was friendly, communicated well, and highly skilled and professional. We will definitely be calling on them again to keep our cars looking beautiful!

  • I can’t begin to say how thrilled I am with the outstanding job James P. did on my vehicle. I am so sorry I didn’t take before pictures! I never expected it to turn out like it did! It is spotless and so shiny. There is not one bit of dirt, dust, crud etc on the inside or outside. It really does look like a brand new vehicle (maybe even better). Its so clean that I don’t want to even drive it until the sun is shining! Great job James P. I will definitely request you next time. It was very nice meeting you!

  • I have had vehicles detailed in the past. Nathan’s cleaned and polished my pickup to a like new finish. They cleaned in all the nook and crannies that I never could or did get to. Although pricey there quality is unsurpassed. I highly recommend them. Also, over a year ago I had “misplaced” my wallet. Looked and looked. Nathan employee found and returned it intact. Again, I highly recommend.
