I Bet! I had an (used) A4 1.8t before the Subaru. Loved that car. then the timing belt popped. 5K of repairs, after that I swapped it for the WRX. Months later Audi writes me a timing belt recall letter. I sent the mechanic's bill and they refunded me the $5000.
I don't miss the luxury, but having the $ I would get an S4/5.
