With my stasis tune due in january i can be assured this car will then be faster than any bolt on m3, its already been proven in the s4. Plus with awd, i go in the snow and when not in boost getting 20mpg in the city. The next m3 or m4 better be substantially better than the current car. I could have gotten an rs5 but the potential for power upgrades is much better in the 3.0t motors. These cars make real power with bolt-ons and go consistently in the mid to high 11's. The m3 can not do that without a 15k supercharger and the risk that goes along with installing it. Audi is the new king. And if i was looking to spend more...then AMG is where i would be. Sorry guys.
I love Audis and yes the supercharged 3l. is a exeptionnal engine with a lot of potential but this is totally false, with an APR stg2(more power then Statis), your S5 would be on par or just a bit faster then a stock DCT M3, but surelly slower then catless M3. FBO M3s can trap as high as 118mph and run in the 11s on street tires, a Statis tune like yours wont trap faster then 112-113mph wich is really good anyway for just a tune!
