    If he was Im not selling my S4 out of choice, Its a monster!

    With so much potential! (S4) We have a tendency of talking about our next upgrade, like the MRC 400 or 500! And forget how FFFFFFFast it really is! 400Bhp. Stupid fast, and thats coming from someone whos just felt 265bhp.

    Since I've got mine chipped and stopped driving like a knob all the time, I get an average of 30 - 32 Mpg from my 2.8Q...

    That does mean driving along the bypass at 55 mph though... but, if you line up and plan your round a bouts, you can take them at 40mph, leave everyone behind who practically stop and save on fuel as you don't have to get from 5mph up to 40mph again.
