Did you guys pick up your latest copy of Automobile magazine... There's a shoot out with the 330i, C320, and IS300. I just skimmed the article and saw at the the that the 330i won by a narrow margin.... The cover of the magazine reads "Audi Attacks" and gives a preview of the all new Audi A4 3.0 which does 0-60 in 6.9 seconds and hits 152mph (ofcourse a speed govenor will probably be used on production versions)....

Car and Driver (this month) has a comparison as well.

Also I noticed a few things:

1> New Audi A4 sounds nice -
New 227hp all aluminum v6
Multitronic CVT auto
0-60 in 6.5 even with auto.

2> Rumors of IS300 wagon for 2002 model year continue to be published.
I was noticing the test comparison in Car and Driver, and one thing that stood out was the 30-50 and 50-80 top gear passing speed in the IS300.

It was like 1/2 that of the other cars...

I didn't look closely but maybe the IS300 was the only auto tested (which puts it at a disadvantage in many categories) so maybe downshifting was unavoidable.
