Damn, those things are way slower than I thought. I was driving on the 405 around 12:30AM last night and I was followed as I weaved through traffic by an A4. Finally, just after the 101 interchange, traffic opened up and I allowed the A4 to pull alongside me for a little fun. We started around 75mph, with me in 4th, and he gave the signal and gunned it. I downshifted to 3rd, which launched my car after him, and once I shifted into 4th again at 85mph, I was even with him and pulling hard, my turbo gauge spiked to 19PSI for roughly 4 seconds, long enough for me to pull ahead of him and at around 110mph, I shifted to 5th. By then I was a good 3 carlenghts on him. I kept going until 120mph, where I lifted off and let him catch up, then paced him to give him a thumbs up, just before reaching my exit from the freeway. A good time was had by all, and I must say that the mule really loves high speeds.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

it does 0 to 60 in 6.9, that's with the standard AWD. so that's not bad.

donutchow, you must drive one of our 330s before you buy your car, because the a4 is NOT a better car....

drive the new one. it's really nice. i just couldn't understand why the clutch and brake were so close together. that got on my nerves. plus, the black leather w/ black dash looked really dark inside. i wouldn't buy it like that, i like lighter leather.

i think audi 3.0 looks better than 330. No offense but there are way too many e46s in my area.

donut, i have driven the new A4s, and maybe im so used to driven the m, but the a4 didnt handle that great. too much body lean, and it felt REALLY Fat & Porky (partly cause of AWD), like trigg said, his saab RAPED a a4....hed have a much harder time raping a 330i manual.....btw a loaded a4 is approx 3-4g's more, and that extra 3-4gs your getting a faster/better handling/much sportier car...a4's are family cars/guys in thier 40s cars

i don't care about handing that much, i'm used to my 110hp mx-6. so anything feels SO sporty and fast. maybe since i have no shocks and 14 inch wheels

When I read 19PSI, I though WTF? Then I saw it was trigg and thought, "Oh he knows what he's doing".

Donut I was looking at at purchasing a 323 or A41.8t about 2 years ago (old body style A4). I didn't get too far into shopping when I got a company car so I never made the purchase. But I was leaning toward the A4, mainly because it is a hellofa lot cheaper and there are some fairly affordable mods to bump it up around 200hp. I thought the interior was better quality. But the Bimemr was probably a better drivers car, but the A4 wasn't disappointing. A frined has a'98 A4 with some BBS wheels and lowered springs, custom exhaust, chipped, CAI and custom grill. I really like that car. I need to get some pics of it next time he brings it to town.
