Re: A4 "Better" than an M3 for 6K?


See marked section below.  

They ain't no way you could even keep close to just a stock A4Q with an M3
on wet/slushy/snowy roads.  You will have great trouble even keeping the M3
*ON* the road, much less making good speed with it.  Good studded snow tars
all 'round would help the bimmer but it still will be all over the place.

BTDT - have the t-shirt.

Now, if we are talking dry weather and clear roads, maybe ya gotta point.
However, if you let me pick the roads (meeting the dry/clean specifications)
you might still have a race on your hands, especially if we include that $6K
worth of mods mentioned below.  :-)
