    Are you really suggesting that your car had a 33 gallon tank?

    It will most likely be a 5 cyl. with some sort of forced induction, like the TT RS

    I will put money on that not happening.

    They have just developed the V6T for the S4/5, down sizing from an N/A V8, so if it's going to happen we are talking B10 if not 11.


    The new RS4 is a V8, so making S4 a R/V/B4 wouldn't make sense.

    Would be sad if Audi brings the S4 downmarket. I realize that the RS4 will slot in its place, but I remember the early 2000's when the S4 was the car that was stealing all the M3 customers. Hard to fathom a 4-cyl engine that makes enough power to satisfy today's sport sedan buyer without unacceptable harshness or turbo lag

    They already moved the S4 downmarket. You're right - it used to compete with the M3 but now it competes with the 335i.

    I saw one of these in Toronto, but it had a Chinese (or what I perceived to be) guys name on the small rear window. It also had legal plates, was pretty cool to see.

    edit: but it didn't say "power tour" on the side

    I was at BMW Club event at a racetrack yesterday, and one of the local sponsoring dealers brought the new M6 out. The engine sounds fantastic and is surprisingly loud. The back and sides of the car are very attractive, but I'm still not sold on the front. The dealer also had a $20k markup on the car. LOL.

    Well I guess I have a new contribution -

    Hertz gave me a MB E350 for a minimal upgrade fee this week. I've been a pretty big Mercedes detractor but I have to say, this thing is goddamn comfortable. I think they are still the best at giving the most luxurious ride without being as wallowy as a Cadillac or boring as a Lexus. Still far away from taking away BmW's crown of sport luxury sedan king, but if you want the most luxurious ride possible without giving up driving dynamics totally, this rig is hard to beat
