A4 20V


I've noticed some interest in the 1.8 A4s. I own a 1.8T Quattro. I
purchased this in April, having traded in my previous Audi 80 2.0E.
Certainly a world apart in performance. I have also driven the non-turbo 
1.8 quattro and it easily out did the 2 litre FWD.

Fuel economy is about 9.5litres/100km in peak hour city traffic. I think
that works out to be 25mpg (US gallons) and that's _not_ driving to save

The factory spec sheet brings them in fractionally under the 2.8V6 (not
available here) eg. 8.4secs to 100km/h (62mph) for the turbo quattro and
8.3secs for the FWD. Top speed is about 220km/h non-limited.
