I have a 2002 330ci 5 spd. with dinan exhaust and my friend has a 2000 S4 tiptronik. He wants to race me and I dont know if I will win or not? Who is faster? Should I race him or not?

uhm no....

if a 2000 S4 is tip and does not have an ECU upgrade it will be very close, i'd even venture to say if you drive your car well, you definitely have a chance at beating him.

done this race many times with my friend.

Lets all make sure we have our facts straight. This is directly from both the Audi and BMW web sites.

Audi S4 2004 0 to 60 mph in 5.3 sec
BMW m3 2004 0-60 mph 4.8 sec

Except that these numbers have no relevance considering we are putting a 330ci vs. an old gen S4 :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

I would probably try it if I were you. What's the worst that can happen? You lose? There's no shame in losing to the performance/motorsport version of a car (i.e. S4) unless you also have a performance/motorsport version of your respective car (i.e. M3). :)

The older gen S4 has a twin turbo 6 cyl engine. The newer ones have V8's. While the new gen cars are faster stock, you can always chip the turbo model. Chipped/modded turbo S4's can be wicked fast. Stock, they're not that impressive.

since hes auto and stock
and ur manual and big 3.0 and some mods. i think he ll own u at first. since the all wheel drive. so in other words he ll pull a lot harder at u at first, then if u shift good and at good speed. u ll catch up easy and you might beat up..


just dont give up once he pulls on you.. DONT
