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.
