    Well IF I had the money, that is one I would cross off of my list.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Sounds ok to me, would never have the bottle to go for the petrol V8, plenty fast enough for todays roads, can't see whats not to like, the RS will be along soon for those that want the supercar type performance.
    It is surprising however, that Audi are coming out with these new diesel units, given the anti diesel backlash going on, but they were probably in development before it all kicked off.

    Maybe they see the s6 as the replacement for the BiTDi and the RS6 is the performance petrol version

    Yes can see the logic there. Wish I'd kept my Bitdi (sorry S6) now!

    The 0-62 of the C7 FL saloon with 320ps was 5.0 seconds.... (0-60 was under 5 )

    I was going to try and get one of the older S6 Avants and they felt considerably quicker than my old BiTDI (320ps)

    Interesting. On paper the performance differential between bitdi and S6 was minimal, what did you feel was better about the S6 in terms of driving feel (ignoring the visceral sound effect)? Just curious as I drove both last go around and I felt that in real world driving the bitdi just had more performance more quickly, whereas to me the S6 needed to stretch it's legs to get the best response. But that's just me.

    Yep I thought that on paper is something like 4.6 seconds for the S6. However thinking about I actually drove an S7 but I did think it parts it was considerably quicker or at least felt it. I think the rear sports differential helped especially accelerating in short corners. Maybe it's a combination of the noise but for me the extra 130ps albeit lower torque gave it the edge. I also think it's legs could go further due to the higher revving. Maybe the bitdi would have been quicker in some scenarios not sure.
