I'm warming up to the idea of an NA V8 S4.  While
I come from the school that an Audi should have
AWD and at least one turbo (so much so that I spent
a wad putting a turbo motor into the '91 coupe), there
really is a drivability difference without a turbo.
While the 2.7T is a huge improvement from the older
K24/K26 turbo engines, it still obviously has a
turbo- a little lag and that shudder when you release
the throttle.  The V8 would be smooth smooth smooth.
And a 344HP V8 Avant is sortof full circle for those
like me that got lugged around as a kid in old
Detroit wagons.  So I dunno...
