... probably take the lemans more, better low down torque ...


S4 has better lower down torque than both doesn't it?
qta4 knows the stats better than me.

Between 2k>3.5k RPM, a chipped S4 would more over all of them (except chipped RS4) . Over a std s4, chipped A4 would have more / same.

Thanks for the reply's, I had seen a 2001 at CCS for $26k and thought it might be interesting.  Unfortunately it has now sold.  They still have a Imola Yellow S4, I'm just not sure about that colour, it probably attracts all the wrong attention from Boy racers and the boys in blue?!!  Also, i'm still not sure about the added mechanical complexity of the S4 ...

What did the lemans sell for ? how many kms ?

We regularly get better than 10l/100k with MTMS4,previous 1.8t quattro avant wasnt any better.

Sure the 1.8t wasnt chipped but i would suggest better economy with S4.
The mtm chipped S4 has better torque than standard RS4.

RS4 has more power standard than chipped S4 but its torque that matters.
500nm torque at 2200 revs makes for effortless driving, we just love it.
Skill is, sucessfully tightrope walking across the Niagra Falls.
Intelligence is, having the sense not to do it.

They were asking $26k for a silver car with 96000kms.  I'm not sure what they actually got for it.

Off memory the Lemans gets extra: MTM Stage 1 chip, older style S4 seats (pre recaro), Quatro GmbH suspenion, 17" alloys, white dash dials, silver trim on dash/door, boot spoiler, 1/2 leather (unless full taken), The alloy suspension arms of the late B5 A4 cars, i remember the brochure saying something about sports steering but never qualified that. immm, thats all i remember. Mine also has full factory and coloured body kit, BBS RC's, Miltek rear exhaust. Took out the middle as was too noisy for the wife, and took out the miltek DP as that made it LOOSE!! power.

What is the significance of the Quattro GmbH suspension? - I have seen it mentioned a few times now.

Quattro GmbH is a subsidary of Audi. They build the short run or special cars. They built the B5 RS4 for audi, designed RS6 and makes options for several models. In general terms you get Audi sport suspension, and then the step up again is the Quattro GmbH suspension.

I have done a bit of searching for info on the Lemans on the internet and there doesn't seem to be anything on them.

I found this one for sale on trademe: http://www.trademe.co.nz/Trade-Me-Motors/Cars/Audi/auction-79642515.htm

Did they make them as an Avant?

Note sure on the avant. The "Lemans" name was a NZ only name. I once found a link to a german article on same spec car, but they called it something else in germany. Basically an end of life limited special for the B5 platform.

As Anton said, less weight at the front = better balance.

Off memory the Lemans gets extra: MTM Stage 1 chip, older style S4 seats (pre recaro), Quatro GmbH suspenion, 17" alloys, white dash dials, silver trim on dash/door, boot spoiler, 1/2 leather (unless full taken), The alloy suspension arms of the late B5 A4 cars, i remember the brochure saying something about sports steering but never qualified that. immm, thats all i remember. Mine also has full factory and coloured body kit, BBS RC's, Miltek rear exhaust. Took out the middle as was too noisy for the wife, and took out the miltek DP as that made it LOOSE!! power.


I've still got the brochure, just dug it out... 138kW/187bhp, 305Nm torque @ 3200 rpm, 4 door sedan or 5 door avant, 5 speed manual, part leather sports seats, grey instruments, aluminium dash inserts, CD changer, 17" wheels + 225/45 tyres, chrome exhausts, boot spoiler (sedan), high performance steering, super sports suspension, MTM motronic engine management upgrade.

On the open road I get milage of around 8 - 8.5 l/100km. I test drove a newer 1.8TQ a couple of years ago (standard package) but found the suspension too soft and the torque was lacking. I'm keep the Le Mans!
