To which I replied; "Wow, sounds like you just pissed away 80K."
He laughed, "yeah, I think you're right!" (BTW...he's kind of a cheapskate)
He was actually pretty cool about it. If I were him, I would've fired a smart-alec like myself....
LMAO you guys must have a good relationship. I might have said something more passively, "I'm sure your interior is a lot nicer than mine..." I bet he went back to his car after work and pulled the same left just to placate his ego/wallet. Sitting passenger also feels different than when you're driver and expecting it.
I talk quite a bit of automotive smack to my boss as well. Well, I used to, anyway. He has a Scat Pack Chally that I always dogged on, trying to get him to line up with me. That is until his car remembered it was a Dodge and did what Dodges do best. After quite a bit of warranty frustrations, the deal bought his car back from him.

Back in the day we had a local drive-in burger joint that did informal but massively attended cruise-ins every Saturday night - Winks Drive-In in Barberton OH. The protocol was: GM up front facing the road, Ford on the side by the entrance, and Mopar in the back! We Ford guys always said the only person stupider than a Ford owner was a Mopar man. Haha! I had a bumper sticker on my ‘69 428SCJ Mustang that read “My Cobra eats Elephants and sh*ts Rats”! That was a real conversation starter! LOL!!

This I can see. I have two coworkers with Camaros, one a 13 zl1 and the other a 10 ss heavily modded to 700+ hps. I can beat them to 30 and around 40 45 they both get me, but offline a RWD car cant touch us. I beet the modded Camaro badly in the rain all the way up to 80. Im sure he was scared to give it his all, but that counts too.

Me too, but I also dont have any delusion our cars are anywhere near that class of car. Its somewhat quick for a 4 door dad car.....There is a reason why an RS7 is 80k. An RS7 is in 911 territory performance wise. Esp if there are corners.

I feel like our cars in tight handling can outperform the S7/RS7 if we've got all the suspension fixings. Audi has the traditional nose-heaviness, as well as that car is also just plain heavy. We did kill one at the last autocross due to the mentioned factors. In a straight line, I don't even want to know where he'd be in a real race...those cars are super gangster, and I'd have one instantly.

For Audi's, I had to do so much to my S4 to even make it handle as well as our Sport with just sways and tower brace. The supercharger on-demand predictability was the only favorable part. FFS for the value win over nearly everything out there. Good times with the RS7 sightings guys!
