Yes they certainly are underestimated cars I think they would give your Rs4 a good run for it’s money If they are tuned . Seriously quick cars .S4 is 350hp though and a standard 140 must be near that. Throw in lighter modded car and I'm not surprised tbh.

Ha ha no doubt! The RS4 does have over 500ft of torque though so perhaps I'd have him at the lights, initially anywayYes they certainly are underestimated cars I think they would give your Rs4 a good run for it’s money If they are tuned . Seriously quick cars .
‘Laugh control’ sounds fun ;-) lol
Agreed - a 400bhp+ M140 is not deployable unless on a bone dry roadTosh. I owned a m135 for 2 years before switching to the s4
In anything but bone dry roads the s4 is the quicker vehicle I understand the m140 is slightly more powerful.
A stock quantro s4 will be quicker on our usual roads
I could not floor the m135 without the rear wheels spinning.
It is when you smoke them off the line laughing all the way until the finishline, will be interesting when they bring out the m340i as that is really the S4 competition. One thing that annoys me about Audi is not allowing us to easlily tune them like the bmw.
I know they do the switchable tech but didn’t think it was going into the m340i. Also I saw that you can choose between 4wd and rear wheel drive in The new M3 and M4’s but not switchable.
M140i and M240i are RWD
M2, M3 and M4 are also RWD
Only the M5 has the switchable 4wd system
Upcoming M340i will be 4wd, but not confirmed it is switchable. There is no confirmed info yet on the future M3 and M4
Talks about new M3/M4 and 4x4 option, also mentions switchable from M5 “trickling down” to M3/M4 whatever that means
"Rumours suggest that the next M3 and M4, launched later this year, will be available in both rear-wheel drive and 4WD versions"
Like I said...nothing confirmed yet for 4wd for next genM3/M4.
What does seem to be clear is that the next generation M3/M4 will have a 500hp twin turbo inline-six cylinder engine. The new engine has just debuted in the new X3M and X4m which will be Competition Pack spec only in the UK (which incidentally, doesn't come with a switchable 4wd system, so it is not a dead cert either for any M3/M4)
Maybe try a DTUK on the B9S4 then.........
I've a DTUK piggy, transmission tune and Milltek sport cat downpipe (S4 saloon).
This combo will convincingly walk off from a stock M140i (pulls a stock B9 RS4 also to be fair)
Same mods on the M-lite in the dry, the S4 isn't going to get a look in past 3rd gear.
In the wet the S4 dominates, obviously.
Out of interest what setting do you have your dtuk box set at? Had mine on dynamic but after 4 months it threw an error up on the dash twice in a week, plugged the blank it for about 3 weeks with no errors at all, turned it back on yesterday and gone down to sport insteadI will get it on a Dyno one of these days...
In the mean time my highly sensitive left butt cheek says 428.9 bhp.

I'm pretty sure in the latest issue of evo there is a page with the headline being M3/4 going AWD. Will be switchable, much like the M5 is today. I'd expect the M340i to be AWD with no switchability much like the S4, and also gives another differentiator for the step into the proper M cars.
