Absolutely. The 4Kq 2.2 only has a 13hp advantage over the
85-87 4Ks 1.8 FWD, but has to carry some 500 pounds of added
weight. The FWD 4000 is so light and tossable it's simply a
blast to drive around curves, that's why I love my 4000 so much.
Of course, the suspension and wheel/tire upgrades, as well as
a 2.0 engine helped a lot too :-)...
2003 A4 1.8T multitronic (soon)
2001 S4 2.7T
