Yes, it is much nicer :drool:
Could be pretty handy since it is a sportback.
310hp though and limited to 210km/h :confused:

There will be different tune of 3.0TFSI for different applications, it will be a VW workhorse much like the 2.0TFSI.

All A's are limited @ 210km/h. S's are higher @ 250km/h.

What I didn't get a shot of is the LED headlights. Looks pretty dim during daytime.

I know I was just figuring it would be closer to the s4's 333 due to its larger size/mass. (A6 only has 300hp I see) I did not know about those limits though, I suppose if you were to chip it, they would go away anyways.

Interesting though that the 333hp s4 makes 319awhp/308awtq and the A6 only makes 244/296.

It's not 333hp..... ;) Although most dyno peg at around 290-300awhp. It's the most aggressively tune of 3.0TFSI other than possibility Touareg Hybrid.

Well it is sold as 333hp, but like all vag products is under-rated, as that is only a 4% loss from 333->319, quite good for awd :rofl:
All I know is I want one, so I will have to tide myself over with one more car such as a b8 a4 or g37x before I can move to the S4 :(

Good looking car .. and those "COUPE" idea is gett more and more popular ..

Just not as practical .. not much head room for the back, but I guess mostly for the kids, so it doesn't matter ..

~$75K is a bit deep as a 310 HP audi .. more then 535i and E350 ..

Well it starts at $68,600, while that fugly 535i xDrive Gran Turismo starts at $69,900 so it seems fairly priced.

I had my 2010 S4 on the dyno. In Calgary, Husky 94, 4th gear pull. All stock except AWE catback. 18" wheels.

^ The cut off is @ ~5500. That's what APR Stage 1 (and Stasis) tune removes and keep the psi up for another 1000k for the extra horses.

Do you have the tune?

I will likely do the STASiS and then return to the dyno and see what it nets.

As a reference, a stock 2009 BMW 335i (auto) did 250ish whp, B6 S4 226 whp, and stock STi around 220 whp on the same dyno.

The 3.0 TFSI in the S4 is seriously underrated (as most magazines and the internet will also tell you). It is interesting to see it first hand with my own vehicle, though.

The base model Cayenne in China and probably some other markets also have this engine rated for the same power (<3.0l displacement tax bracket).

They look good .. in some angle ... just similar to the Rapide, not that easy to get in and out, and not much headroom for 6 fter .. (Once you get inside, not that bad ..) and not easy to load up child seat ... :( (kind of like the X6)

I seriously can count in 1 hand how many times I get to go over 5500 rpm in a week. And I will not likely see the benefit unless I spend time on the track.

So I probably won't spend $1500 (and park my car for a week) for that tune which in the end adds only 30hp/30lb/ft. You will see a difference but not good for bang for bucks.

Yes, Audi understated the HP by a long shot. Stasis claims 410HP which means stock crank HP is around 370-380. 300awhp = 20% drivetrain loss which is more realistic (still very low) for AWD.
