Hi David,

There's at least Robin (Germany), Andy and I (UK) reading this list.
Check out www.audi-sport.net which is frequented by many UK owners, plus a
few from across Europe, SA and Australia.

Oh, and as I've mentioned before, the US hp is SAE whereas the Euro bhp is
DIN such that the Euro S4 is about 261 hp. The main difference between the
US and Euro cars is in the peak torque.


P.S. Weren't all the S4's made in Ingolstadt so all of them outside Germany
were imported from Germany?

The european S4 has 265 hp (against 250 hp for the US version, due to
environment protection considerations I think) and has a top speed limited
to 250 km/h (most of the german constructors have an agreement to limit
their cars to that speed - except Porsche of course). The removal of the
limiter, wich is a basic mod offered by many tunners like ABT, allows a top
speed of 272 km/h (169 miles per hour). that's with the original eeprom. By
the way, am I the only European owner in the list? I feel lonely!
