What to expect from a 50k car

Q: What are some differences between B5 platform Audi S4 build dates?
A: Audi seems to roll out updates gradually on their cars, so no list may be totally accurate. For example, you may have a M-box with the older shifter stalk. Also note that S4s were released in Europe before North America.
