I have one. It was mine, now the wifes.

- 17" wheels as std
- Different seats from std sports seats (S4 original seats, prior to recaro i was told)
  > 1/2 leather or optional full leather
- MTM Stage 1 from new
- Quattro Gmbh Suspenion as std (Sach)
- Boot spolier as std
- Alloy suspension (some of the early facelift didnt have it) ???
- brochure mentioned something about steering differnces, but probably bollocks ???

basically its a go kart for the tight twisties. really good handlng. yet to drive an audi thats better. that incluides my RS4 with Quattro GmbH suspenion in it (too heavy). Wife doesnt want an upgrade, cauz all the new ones drive like crap in comparision.

No, not really. It was the later facelift that got that. 2000/2001.

I had me an Avant with the red stripe on the badge.......if I recall correctly those ones had a 190 hp engine upgrade, but it certainly didn't have the boogie of the earlier sedan with a 187 MTM chip that i traded it on. Summink to do with 240 nM of torque compared to 305, I think??

stock facelift has 180hp (not 190) with 240Nm. MTM gave it 187hp with 320Nm. So yes, the MTM makes a difference, but mostly torque.
