RE: Audi A4 1.8T or 2.8

It you want to have FUN, and the ability to upgrade to all hell, get the
1.8T. There are so darn many chips that can up the HP to higher than the
2.8, that you'd go crazy trying to decide which one, and all for under $700!
Basically you can up the 1.8T anywhere from 180hp on up to a solid 240hp,
some have kits for even up to 300+hp. As for the 2.8, until a supercharger
kit comes out, you only can squeeze about 17hp more out of it. And the 2.8
is also heavier in the front.

And if you want to Autocross it, get the 5spd, Quattro, Sport Suspension,
and DEFINITELY the Sport Seats.
