This is the kind of village-idiot thinking that turns up in all these "mine's better than yours" flame wars. If BMW built a turbo version, and it was faster, then you can discuss it. They don't, and the cars are closer together than half past six in terms of overall performance, so live with it.

I admire your passion, and deplore your judgement. Any reasonable person would be of the opinion that these two cars are both very capable, and will likely appeal to slightly different audiences and needs.

I've spanked 5 S4s that initiated a race with me so far. I've even had one try to race me on my R1! Wheelied past him in 3rd gear! Sorry I sound so angry but I was an S4 fan until they started talking shit.

Talking shit is what you're doing. Why would you let any owner (or group of owners) affect your opinion of an automobile? That's extremely logic impaired. Maybe it's the village idiot syndrome surfacing again?
