.......than a manual. I don't think it'll be ready to take on the torque of a 540 or an S4 yet. Maybe in a couple years.

For the S4, Audi revised the gear ratios so it's only a half second slower to 60 (6.0 vs. 5.5). My new chip erases that lag and I'm now 5.4 or 5.5 to 60. On the highway, I can catch unsuspecting Corvettes.........(grins)
