If you read my post more carefully, I claimed that the two cars were about equal in acceleration. Well, since I own both a 325is and an A4, I just get in with a friend and a stopwatch and time them. According to Road and Track, an Audi A4 1.8T with quattro runs 0-60 in 7.9 seconds. My 1.8T is a FWD version and is about 300 lbs lighter than the quattro version. I have gotten about 7.8 in this car. In my 5 speed 325is, I get about 7.3 seconds. With a performance chip, however, the 1.8T Audi improves to 6.5 seconds and with a Dinan chip the 325is will probably run about 7.0. Either way, I'm not going to be able to tell a difference by the seat of my pants. As for racing, I want a cheaper car for that in case I wipe out :)
