I have driven the A4 2.8 QMS and it feels a "little bit" faster than my 323i. This is not a knock on my own car. The 2.8 A4 felt faster to me, that is all. Do not take this as a personal insult my friend. We are entitled to our opinions. I love my 323i, but the Audi in the 2.8L configuration felt quicker off the line.
There is not need to get nasty here. If you drove a Viper and a Corvette C5 and told me the Corvetter feels faster to you, I would not flame you even if the Viper may have faster numbers in auto mags.
Don't get me wrong. I would take the E46 anyday over an A4. Just look at the A4.org posts from yesterday. I basically told those guys that the A4 1.8T is not a better car than the 323i. It maybe the more affordable car, but certainly not the better. The 2.8 though is very on par with my 323i and to me, it feels faster.
Flame away Mike !
