Dispite your insightful post I still struggle to understand fuck_scott.gif

The Audi site quotes 5.6 (Saloon) and 5.8 (Avant). Are Audi being conservative or did they manage to shave half a sec off by some other means?

I also found the figures tend to vary (slightly) from site to site. Depends how they measure, if they measure themselves or just copy the figures from elsewhere I guess.

I could imagine Audi would be on the conservative side though, to avoid any possible complaints?

And Woppum, even with 280 you'd still be a spec in my mirror

But quite possibly the best looking spec, you have ever seen wink.gif-o

Out of interest, what are the costs and what is needed to get an R32 from standard to 280bhp?

Remap and exhaust i think.

Having sports cams pushes it to 300bhp

According to 1/4 Mile Rivals

Make, Model, 0-30, 0-60, 0-100, 1/4 mile, Terminal Speed

Audi RS4, 1.7, 4.7, 11.2, 13.2, 108

Audi RS2, 1.5, 4.8, , 13.5,

Audi S4 Avant(New), 1.7, 5.2, 13.3, 13.6, 103

Audi S4, 1.9, 5.5, 14.8, 14.3, 99

Audi S3, 1.9. 6.4, 16.4, 14.7, 94

Golf R32, 1.9, 6.5, 15.6, 14.7, 97

BMW E46 M3, 2.0, 4.8, 11.5, 13.4, 107

BMW M5, , 5.4, 13.6, 14.0,

McLaren F1, 1.8, 3.2, 6.3, 11.1, 138

Put that in as its the RS2's claim to fame, the RS2 and the RS4 are quicker than a McLaren F1 (to 30 anyway) Shows how good the RS2 was though, still one of the quickest cars over 1/4 mile smile.gif

Sorry, but these figures look well dodgy. I know that a "standard" S3 for example would no way in hell do a 1/4 time like that.

What would you expect a satndard S3 to do it in then, is there anybody on here that has took their S3 up the Pod? I bet its not far off smirk.gif

I tend to agree - most of the S3's I've seen were pulling high 14's and low 15's - standard.

Also, the RS4 figure is about bang on. RobK got a 13.1 in his (then standard) and I think my best was about 12.5 when running about 465BHP.

They don't look dodgy to me apart from 14s for the M5. That looks a bit odd - only .7 off an S3 sounds like crap I'd have thought it would have been around the rs4's range.

I have never seen an M5 beat an RS4 up the stip and I must have seen them race the best part of 10 times. It seems to be the take off where the M5 always loses ground, then its neck & neck confused.gif

But then again an M3 and an RS4 are pretty matched on the road, but most would say the M5 was faster.

Personally I think its all crap and down to the driver. Too bloody close to make the dammdest difference in most circumstances. Unless its wet wink.gif

Totally agree with Mac,

When we were out (me in my Rs6 and Mac in his Rs4).. there was so little in it it was amazing..

Actaully, because Mac is so small he was maybe just a tad quicker fuck_scott.giftongue.gif

Oh I don't believe an M5 can regularly do 4.6 0-60 either. Like I said I've never seen an M5 beat an RS4 at Santa Pod - and certainly not to 60 tongue.gif

He was probably pretending not to see or hear cos of the way we took off. Scene from the Last Starfighter springs to mind FIREdevil.gif

Lol what was it an escort or something? Trying to keep up with an RS4 & an RS6 at full chat, wouldn't have fancied his chances somehow.

Saying that doubt we could have outran his radio blush.gif

The remap brings the power up to 260nhp/lbs, then the miltek will give you 270-80bhp/lbs depending on how warn in your car is. When speakimng to AMD the other day they told me a woman who had ragged their car to begin with, who had 20k miles on the clock was getting a 250bhp reading on the RR. In future, rag your cars to crap from the start!!!

Also a guy with 50k on the clock with a 210 S3 had a start reding of 250BHP, then 279.1 after the remap!!!

Any chance you could add <font color="red"> "But considerably slower between 30mph and 60mph where it really matters" </font> to your Signature ?

Mine was a year old and had 10k on the clock when it posted 212 bhp and 211 lb/ft. There must have been something 'wrong' with that rolling road as the highest I have heard a standard AWK S3 to hit is 230 and certainly not 240 or even 250!
