At the risk of offending Audi owners, it's pretty funny to hear that comment. BMW owners start off with an exceptional base automobile, then tack on stupid parts. Audi owners start with a mediocre core design and spend fortunes making them faster than other Audis but slower than the most basic modded BMWs.
None-the-less, I love Audis. I just know better than to try to mod them. They still drive like there's a dead horse tied to the front of the car, no matter how many mods you make. The Audi clubs are full of really cool people, though, and I've had some of my most fun track days with the Audi club.
