420hp and it's only doing 0-60 in 4.8 secs, kinda slow isn't it? R&T had the 335 at 5 secs, edmunds had it at 4.8 secs.

it's the weight of the quattro. when the new M3 comes out...the RS4 will be considered a nice car...but not the hot new thing...

then audi will undoubtedly will release something next...and then so on and so forth.

Audi's have always been a step below in the handling department with their front heavy/understeer prone cars... Their cars are heavy in general, and if it wasnt for the 2.0 being FI i dont think they would have as good of a tuner scene, because there isnt really anything special about the car other than good winter driving/ offroad use...this is not including the S lineup of cars..

I mean they are nice cars and all, both inside and out, but the DNA of the car has no real personality, im sure in time Audi will get the picture and change this a bit.

Aww man 335i should've won the World Performance Car category... offering very competent performance with RS4 with only 60% of its price it should be a no brainer! The Audi TT does look very nice though. I thought the first generation TT was slick enough already and the new one just surpasses it like that! What a great year for Audi!
