Hey Gang,

Just read through a funny thread on m3post.com (it is a few months old now) where one of the members posted a link to this MotorTrend blog post:

http://blogs.motortrend.com/6212023/editorial/2008-audi-s5-yum-yum/index.html

Which spawned a 5+ month argument between the m3 owners. :rolleyes:
Quattrings has actually done 4.46 himself in the S5, and commented that he can do it consistently, he even has picture ot the measuring equiptment to prove it too. Although he does have a few mods and his car has been lightend but still.:D

Just read the thread on that forum.

Who buyz a car for 0 - 60 mph anyway, if that's what anyone wants then they should buy a Caterham.

Torque have anything to do with the performance of the cars. Couldn't be bothered looking for graphs to compare, but does it go some way as to why the performance of the cars is so close? Also looking at the gear ratios the S5 has a shorter ratios than the RS4 for 2nd and 3rd gear again another factor in the close performance up to 60 and 100 mph?

RS4/S5
2nd: 2.21/2.05
3rd: 1.52/1.46

RS4: 430nm
S5: 440nm
M3: 400nm
