    Yeah, sorry about not seeing that thread - didn't mean to duplicate the conversation. I just now noticed that only the most recent posts are visible when not "logged in" - so I hadn't seen that one...

    It's not really a question of the location of the turbos - it's the engineering and design of the oil and cooling systems for the bearings that are the real issue with many turbo failures...

    It may not FEEL as fast as the RS6, if that's what you mean, but in reality, it's quite a bit faster. The RS6 has old-school "nothing/bam" turbo lag - the 4.0TT's powerband is much smoother.

    -failing PCV valve @ 40-60k miles, which is a $1500-$2000 fix outside of warranty
    -turbos can fail, even without tuning

    That said, it’s a paragon of...

    Yep, saw that.

    Good to know that your Tesla has also been trouble-free.

    Audi just extended the warranty on that PCV valve on 4.0TTs, so depending on the situation, some people may be eligible for reimbursement if they paid for replacement.

    The eTron GT looks like it will be very tempting, as long as the range and charging infrastructure are there.
