Stopped by Carlsen in Palo Alto and picked up the brochure on the neu S4.
Spec sheet missing a few things:
- max turbo boost (tuning potential)
- capacities- fuel, oil (6 qts like Ur S4?)
and prolly a few more I haven't noticed yet.
Are there 2 boost guages?
Do we (the list) have factual- as opposed to speculative- info on these
missing specs? How different is this car going to be from the A4 (other than
the obvious- 2 extra cylinders.)
I like the color options better than TT. I think the Nogaro blue (RS2)
and silver interior would be nice. I've kindof concluded that the TT is
not for me... too small to haul ski/ windsurf/ bikes/ Home Depot etc..
My coupe quattro rarely goes a week without such duty.
Now that there are some real TT owners on the list, what is the practical
experience for daily driving?
BTW, they predicted Sept./Oct. delivery based on current waiting list.
No, I didn't order one, but if the stock market keeps going up....
