    Which car to buy?

    I'm looking for an upgrade!
    I've had a B7 A4 S Line 2 litre turbo 6 speed for the last 3 years and love it but I need a bigger car now and something newer.

    I'm looking at a 2010 to 2013 A6 or a A5/S5.
    I need a 4 door so the S5 here (Australia) is the 3 litre supercharged.

    I was wondering which engine has the most potential for mods in those lines?

    3 litre tdi
    3 litre supercharged
    4.2 V8
    Or any other?
    I've read something about a 3 litre tdi twin turbo? Is that right and is it any good?

    And help would be great!

    Thanks

    Wow, didn't realize there is a 4door 5. 4.2 is the runt of the litter. The 3.0t has a lot of hp potential. I know very little about the the TDI, but would guess it could become a torque monster. Have driven it in a Q7 and was ample to get that pig moving. Take a look at charts from the big tuners. I went from the 2.0t to 3.0t and couldn't be happier, completely different game.

    The 3.0T (supercharged) is the one to get! A tune and pulley upgrade will put you north of 450hp reliably.

    I'm not familiar with the TDIs but I imagine the power can't touch the 3.0TFSI.

    Ok, that's what I thought. A6 3.0 supercharged it is then. Thx for your input.
