You're in Denver? You probably should get something turbocharged given the high altitude in your city. 335 FTMFW.

Has it been released yet? I understand your point, but my guess is that the AWD 911 might best the 0-60 mph and possibly track times (the really windy ones). On the other hand, top speed and the...

I read somewhere that the V8 in the M3 will actually be 30lbs lighter than the outgoing inline 6?

Thanks...I thought it didn't show up in the current gen S4 until the B8...I guess I should also add the current generation S6 and S8 to the list of 40:60 rear biased quattro cars.

You're correct on everything else...but doesn't the TT and A3 use a Haldex system for AWD and all other models use TorSen?

Did you rent an RS4? If you're stateside, the only audi's with 60:40 rear quattro bias are the Q7 and RS4 iirc.

As someone who owns a 2006 A4, here are the pros/cons from my point of view. Either car IMO will be a great buy, but you'll probably have an understandably biased view from this forum.

It's probably your A4. The tip has serious lag issues with the 2.0T...it's a greater investment to have the manual version (no lag time). Some folks on the A4 boards complain of the squeaky brakes,...

0-60 times

I would expect the car mags to reach 0-60 times in the neighborhood of 4.1-4.4 seconds easily with a fully broken in M3 and good tires.

I'm extrapolating this from the similarly powered RS4 that...
