Anyone drive the 2000 S4 Bi-Turbo yet? Those brakes
are awesome! I keep braking waaaay too soon in normal
street driving, this after getting out of the 200q20v
mit excellent UFOs.

Anyone done an engine R&R in one of these puppies yet?
Ut was a real challenge!m We also added APR Stage II
kit, APR chip, bi-pipes, SS exh, Samco hose kit 0 this
car screams and is amazingly smooth, and the brakes
are good too.
