e90/2 is a different story, but the e93 is a DOG.
LOL - yeah, 0-60 in 4.6, and quarter in 13? Compared to the e92 at 4.3 seconds, and 1/4 in 12.8? Some dog...

Okay - so? I'm sure others have run verts faster too. Congrats on the times tho

The point is simply that it's a relative spectrum - calling an e93 M3 "a dog" is a little like saying an NFL starter sucks. Is everyone Peyton? No. Are the rest of the NFL players better than anyone else on earth? Pretty much. 4.6 (or faster) isn't exactly slow.

Keep in mind - you're comparing your modded S4 to a stock E93.

Second, although a stock S4 is only barely faster than a stock e93 - by 0.1 to 0.2 in 0-60 an quarter mile times - this still is not an apples- to apples comparison - the closest thing audi currently makes to an E93 M3 is the S5 convertible - same supercharged 3.0 as in your B8 S4. S4 weighs 3900 lbs, E93 M3 about 4150, and S5 vert about 4300. E93 M3, in an apples to apples comparison with S5 vert is noticeably faster...think of the s5 vert, in other words, as a B8 S4 convertible (which I'd essentially what it is - aside from the simple nomenclature difference between "S4" and "S5."

And to say that E93 is a dog when it is only 0.1-0.2 slower than stock s4 means that s4 is only a tiny bit faster than a dog (which I'm quite confident you'd never say)...

That being said - I have a new q7 with the exact same 333hp, 325 lb/ft engine as in your s4 - considering the 5200 lbs it has to pull - I think it does one hell of a job - so imagine it's pretty awesome in s4 and s5...

If you're Tony Romo and you're a starter, yeah you suck.
