>>This is also largely a test of how intrusive (safe?) a stability control system is, which slows yours exit speed. Still, it would be fun to own one of those and challenge a Bimmer in a slalom.
It would be fun indeed. In this fun MT slalom test Lancer Evo 4-door sedan beats Corvette, Viper, Lamborghini, Ferrari and Benz:

Infiniti G is RWD, but AWD version was not tested and I assume it would have similar performance.
Infiniti G now comes in AWD sport, the G37XS.
Similar suspension to the RWD G37S.
Having driven both, it was hard to decide which I liked better. Unobtrusive AWD system made both very sporty feeling.

a4 seemed lot of fun with car zooming forward from stop. bmw also good control and responded well. i guess more torque at lower speeds made the difference. i did do only city driving though - going to upto 50 with the audi. didn't find anything bad, but don't know about freeway limitations. apart from that, it was definitely roomier than the bmw, and also had more features for the money, better leather also. any comments... did not try the infinity - not interested in that much power, with low mileage as a consequence to boot. also heard audi awd is the best.

A while ago I drove an A4 V6 and liked it, the new model, too. They changed the AWD split to allow a rear bias, and I liked it better. More neutral handling, it seemed. The BMW 328xi just about matched it on the track at Summit Point, where I sampled them both.
I had a slight preference for the Bimmer, but half the crowd preferred the Audi, so it was a close call.
I have not sampled the 2.0T in an Audi yet.
