    2.0 TDI faster than a 3.2!

    OK, not strictly true. A chipped 2.0TDI (180bhp) appears to be faster than a std 3.2 round a track, according some testing Autobild have done round a 2 mile track.

    I don't know German, so do not know whether the same person drove each car (175 of them) under the same conditions. But there are some strange-ish results there from which you may infer that it wasn't or conditions changed. Still, QI.

    I think the testing is rather standardised, as it's the 175 cars they have tested over the last 3 years. Some surprising results there. An standard S4 faster than a standard RS6! OK, only just.
