RE: A4Q vs RX7TT? Unh Unh.

I have driven both and I also concur.  I did not get to drive the M3 on the 
track but from  ~2 hours driving on the street I can tell you that I was not 
overly impressed with the M3 either.  It did have more power but the 4k has a 
weight advantage and the power is more of a lower end grunt where as the M3 is 
a smoother steadier power output.  As far as handling goes I think the my 4k 
is just as sticky do to the weight advantage and awd.  I AM NOT SAYING THAT 
THE M3 WOULD NOT WIPE THE TRACK WITH MY 4K.  All I am saying is that my 4k is 
a very competitive car in the corners and if you put a competent driver in a 
4k instead of myself I think most would concur also.
Now if I can just squeeze that 20valve in........

Puhleez....i love Audis to death but i seriously doubt that the 4kq can handle 
at an equal level as a new M3.  That is highly improbable.  And youmust have 
been on the brake the whole time because it goes 0-60 in 5.4seconds i have 
never heard of any audi going that fast....other  than an S variant....or a 
highly modified Audi.
