Guess we won't let anyone who gets the new S participate on our BITURBO group,
eh? ;-)

Seriously though - I really love the turbo and really like Audis. What are the
chances that this new car will be anything nearly as mod-able as the current
one? I've heard rumour about the RS4 making it over hear, but that would be a
biturbo based off the new 3.0 (not the 4.2 that the next S4 will sport). Should
I sink money into an RS4 based on what I have now (i.e. stage3), wait for the
new S4 and mod that puppy, or wait for the RS4? Discuss.
P.S. To get an idea of what the 3.0 will be like vs. the 2.7, I've pulled these
numbers from the U.K. site where not only do they offer the NA 2.7, but I can
understand what they're writing.
3.0 0-62 in 6.9;3318 lbs.; 220hp; 221 ft/lbs.
2.7... I give up looking. Am I an idiot? I swear I saw tons of these over there
(2.7 without turbos).

P.P.S. If the only option is a automatic (i.e. SMG and the RS6 paddles IMHO),
then discuss nothing; I won't buy it (and that's why I won't consider an MB).
