Tell me more! Count me in on your numbers. Just test drove an A4 3.0 6sp
quattro. Nice car. Lots of grunt, nimble, good turn in, okay grip (hard
to explore with salesman and Taka in the car), but the thing I missed was
the horsepower up high that my I-5 T (chipped) provides. Still, the new
A4 is getting much closer to the ideal that I'd seek. In the meantime, I
guess I'm keeping the 200Q for quite awhile, so that means I most
definitely will be needing parts (it IS a type 44 you know!).
