He's used that RS4 in several other vids, and I don't think it's in complete good health. The standing quarter he got with it is a second off what Autocar got back in 2006, and that was two up and with a full fuel tank (as per all their tests). A post-MRC remap/clean etc B7 would be very interesting to see, though...
Putting a remapped and carbon cleaned 12 year old car up against a standard 12 year old similar car would hardly be a fair test though would it.

Cheers :thumbs:
No interest in fairness, just curious how much of a difference it makes.

If that’s the case then it would be interesting doing a head to head.

When he ran the RS4 as a long-termer, he loved it and couldn't praise it highly enough. Then, when he bought an M3 (this time with his own money), all of a sudden it was an inferior product. Though when Steve Sutcliffe did a back to back on both for the same magazine, he arrived at the opposite conclusion. I haven't trusted Harris's words since.
Do you have the details on Sutcliffe’s review? I don’t think I’ve seen that so would make an interesting read.
I've scanned them now, so PM me an email address if you want them - I did the full road test, M3 comparison and Harris's 3 long term reports. Jesus, they are glowing...
