Oh yeah only the 2.0 is going to make it here.

I think porsche has some stake in Audi or something like that?

Audi and Porsche are in JV for some production cars. Audi engines have been using Porsche turbo's for some time now in all their models. The new A4 is killer and is based on the A5 platform released earlier. The 3.2 engine is somewhat dissapointing, its underpowered compared to similar models in Merc C350 and BMW 335i. I'm sure about the Europian models.

Audi used Porsche for some of the earlier RS4' ,now they use Lamboghini engines etc for the RS6, S8.

New A4 is good but the fwd limits the experience on the edge as also steering feel. The S-line package helps
