Tourings Rule... Mine is far better and more fun to drive than the 2001 1.8T A4 Avant that it replaced. No more Audis for me, thanks. Both were 5 speeds and yes the Audi was chipped to about 215 hp.

Tks. Actually I think timing actually does work to your advantage .. you don't want no "beta version" ... wait a year for them to debug. "Patience is a virtual"

btw, I just ordered an M3 steerring wheel today .. gonna love it more

Sweet M-tech spoiler, UncleDon! Been tossing around to decide where my (limited) fund to go to ... I just can;t afford the "show factor" for now ... oh well.. ...

but then, may be someone can pitch in by buying my projector & widescreen setup..

Mine's a manual. Not as fast as a 330, but fast enough to easily go through traffic and get me in plenty of trouble.

It's an absolutely fantastic car.
