Mike, 15.9 sounds really, really slow.  Are you at high elevation or
something?  If not, something is not right.

Motor Trend hit the 14.1 (December 1999).  Car & Driver "only" hit 14.2
(September 1999).  You can see those results on my fun website:
http://home.early.com/~mrtwr/cardata.html  (Sorry, but it hasn't been
updated in a long, long time.  But there is still a lot of good info there.)

Thanks for the comments.  I guess I was just trying to get a feel for just
how fast a chipped S4 would be compared to my old 93 RX-7.  Sounds like it
would pull about the same (103 mph or so).  I don't think that would be fast
enough for me.  I think I'd be bettter off and happier with getting a sports
car as a second car and leave the S4 stock.  Time to start saving and to
figure out what I want to get...
