Its more so when it looks like an every mundane car, but cars like billio. I had a Cedric Cima 3.0L Turbo V6 years ago, looked like an old barge that would be driven by a geriatric, but it was a traffic light hero. That was a sleeper.

replacing an RS4 badge with a Tdi badge is just mental, you're not fooling anyone when they hear the burble as opposed to the diga diga diga, and thats not making it a sleep, it makes the owner look like a dick, why ruin a perfectly good RS4 with a budget tdi badge? Pfft!

^^^ this

swapping one badge for another just makes people look at your car funny, especially when it doesn't even SOUND as one would expect. A sleeper would be like the one guy i met in Maryland who has/had a Jeep Wrangler with a stroker motor in it.

I know it's poorly recorded.

Warning: friend drops f-bomb in video

My friend drove it home. Said revving the motor at idle shakes the entire car. Better sound of it now here...

Can the stock rear end and diff handle that much torque? Just curious, as it was a base model you started with.
