Impressive! What are people getting to the wheels wheels stock?
I guess what I was getting at is -[in my opinion] for 58 (or whatever they are loaded - base is not realistic for me b/c I like the toys) it should have more power - if not at least have the potential?
The fact we can tune the N54 so easily I got sucked in - simple as that. For me there is something to be said about a car that responds well to simple modifcations (a la 5-liter Mustangs). I wanted an S5 for a long time but when it was time to hand over the cash, I went for the cheaper 335 with it's power potential and resale.
What message boards are you reading? I'd be interested in seeing what the S4/5 people are up to.
