We ran an errand today and took the wife's R. Man, that car. I completely forgot how brutally quick it is. Holy crap.

My hard plates came today by way of @Smooremin so his dealer plate was sent back and I put them on.

So, of course my personalized plates showed up 2 hours later…

sounds like a nice black friday/cyber monday christmas gift for mrs. hostile. 👀
I think she's holding out for impending Black Friday deals. I had her onboard for a intake and turbo inlet but then she wanted some shoes instead. :rolleyes::ROFLMAO:

My SQ5 is APR tuned for 91, pulling around 430 HP.

034 just released their Version 2 ecu/tcu tunes. Moar torque. Moar crackle. Stage 2 91 outputs 542 ft lb.

Yea, Audi left a lot of performance on the table with the B9 3.0t.

034 is getting over 600ft-lb of torque on their stage1 E85 tune. It's nuts.

Pretty much. I bought the SQ5 in the first place because of an obsession with the X3 M, but those being in the mid-60's used -- I ended up with 80% the performance for $25k less.
Yea. Every review says the X3 M40i/GLC E43 AMG are faster but they are both over $10k more expensive at MSRP when similarly equipped. They also seem to agree that the Audi is the most pleasant to live with day-to-day.

Personally, I prefer the exterior styling of the Audi and neither has as nice an interior as far as I'm concerned.
