massive coolant leak

My C4 S4 is lowered and has stock 16x8 wheels and tires - wider than the
200. It corners flatter, and it can pull more G. The 200's not as stable,
but in daily situations it gives me a lot more feedback than the S4, and I'm
actually more confident taking a hard corner with it.
Go into a hard turn with the 200, the body rolls and and the chassis digs in
when you get back on the gas. The tires are skinnier and may slip a little,
but I kind of like that - I feel the edge coming and it's predictable.
I don't get that in the S4. Maybe if I drove into that turn 20 mph faster
I'd get more feedback....no I'm not doing that. Lowering the S4 cost money
and hasn't paid off in every day driving - but it does look badass.
Bang for the buck, I don't know what beats a good 200 with Euros and a chip
- it's just a great car.
