    Default A peek 'neath the wife's bonnet (SFW)

    After scraping my knuckles on the m60 for 2 hrs today, I'm a shade envious of Audi's engine bay ergonomics. This the 2.7T Biturbo V6 on her Allroad, and it all makes too much sense. 25mpg too. Oh well, thought you might want to see...

    It's only spec'd at 23mpg, but we've been getting 25 pretty consistently. She has a light touch. Not bad for 250 hp on all four wheels.

    That thing is fun to drive, step on the gas while turning and you are still accelerating with no tire squeel. Go AWD!

    A friend just traded in his A4 for an S4 and he hasn't stopped smiling since! Fun car.

    yeah, the AWD is great... my brother had an S6, turbocharged straight 5 cylinder, all wheel drive, 5 speed, and that thing sure was a blast. It just didn't hold to the road quite like a BMW at higher speeds, but still a great car...

    LMAO... sorry, but with the tile like "A peek 'neath the wife's bonnet" I was expecting to see a different type of picture.
