It cant be true... can it..

S4 (B6) 0-60: 5.8
A5 3.0 (oil burner) 0-60: 5.9

There is no way I want to lose to a diesel lol :)

Any S4 owners getting less than 5.8 from stock?

Chocolate? It's doo-doo, baby!
I think on test S4s have got a snatch over 5 seconds. I doubt a diesel would get near it as you'd probably have to change gear 3 times!

The V8 is pretty revvy right enough. But it doesn't REALLY surprise me that the new V6 TDI is that close. Well maybe a little as that is damn close. But, by comparison, my 8P A3 2.0TDI (138) after its map, felt no slower than my Golf V6 4Motion in a straight line.

So thats a 4-pot diesel against a 6-pot petrol. So a 6-pot Diesel against an 8-pot petrol, especially when you are talking 7-8 years newer engine in the diesel.

Now map that 3.0 TDI and watch it go...

Be carefull what you're saying mate ! The v6 tdi does have massive torque and with just a little mapping it goes well over 300 brake horse power. There is a white a5 tdi in romania wich humiliates many petrol so called "sports cars" ! Here's a link:

Was the Porsche driver asleep at the start?
You're missing the point mate, each car has its own timing device and it does not matter who took off first, it starts counting since the car got rolling. Under 13 sec. quarter mile time is seriously quick in a 4 wheel drive weighing over 1700kg car let alone in a derv !

Nu stiu prea mult despre a5 lui massimo, eu sunt mai mult interesat de "old skool" v6 tdi power ! Ar trebui sa ne intilnim odata, eu stau in Muswell Hill, Nordul Londrei...
