Precisely and this is why I don't believe we will see the 335iM/Sport getting a bump in power because such a thing will be the reserve of the 335is, though I think this model will be dropped in...

I don't believe he was looking at how well the old 3 series sold but was making a reference to the S4 which has 333hp compared to the 335i at 300hp. :thumbup: And you are right about Audi forums,...

I just can't believe that the M/Sport will get more power than the regular 335i. Every UK magazine has all but confirmed its price as 2k more expensive than the S/E. That means you are not only...

My A6 has at times tons of road surface noise so I can understand Mike's comment of them wanting to keep it light which is my belief with my Audi. Still I wished it was a bit quieter since its...

After reading what someone just posted about the lack of smoothness with the N20 I think you might be better with the 335i.

I don't know for why but I was expecting a completely new engine designed from the ground up for some reason. This might explain why it's not as smooth but I'm still shocked given BMW's reputation...

That's a surprise to hear the VAG 2.0T is smoother considering the N20 is a brand new engine. Maybe Audi has isolated things better rather than anything else?

Out of the choice between a Golf R and 328i it's easy, the 328i everyway. You say price isn't an issue but I reckon this is true only up to a point otherwise much more exotic stuff would have been...

I'm surprised any of the dealers can give you such confident predictions because my dealer couldn't even tell me what price it will be, kit it will come with or even the exact date it will go on sale.

Never leased in my life and reasons are simple, once you start to add options the rates go sky high. Well at least that's how it is here.

Are you sure that carbon build up is still a problem because I was told it no longer an issue. At may be worthwhile checking this out to see if it's the same thing over your side of the pond.

The power increase with the performance package is news to me, in the pass all they did was increase the speed limiter.

I'm telling you, the S-Line A6 hasn't as comfortable a ride as the S4 has with adaptive suspension so I think it as a possible choice is very relevant.
