    Anyone seen the latest Performance Tuner mag? It's only on edition 5 or 6 I think, and the first one I've seen.

    ANyway, they're running a test against the following A4 Avants:

    2003 B6 1.8T (163bhp) with a 340bhp APR (Stage 3+) conversion
    2007 B7 3.0 tdi with a remap up to 287bhp (I think)
    2007 RS4

    The tuned 1.8T was the quickest and fastest of the 3...

    0-62mph:

    1.8T = 5.4s
    3.0tdi = 6.7s
    RS4 = 5.8s

    I wonder how the 1.8 engine will last with that sort of power running through it...? A professional conversion though.

    was the guy driving the RS4 having a tea break, they do sub 5.0 second 0-60 all day long, we were getting 5.8 seconds out of S4's at GTI international without trying too hard.

    well we did have to drive home afterwards, lol. i'm sure with a bit less mechanical sympathy and some more aggresive gear changes a 5.1 or .2 was easily on the cards

    No way the RS4 was launched properly.

    All the cars were 2-up, and driven by the same chap. Can only imagine he was having a bad day when in the RS4. I was shocked. If it were true, then alot more people I'm sure would be tuning up 1.8T's.

    I thought the mag was okay until I read the hit/miss bit in the back which said my s3 was a miss (one of about six the cheeky fookers)!!!
    Evo magazines better value wise
