Dude your friend is kidding hiself. The Acura Legend is fast. My Aunt had one until she traded it in for a Traliblazer. Audi are slow, and cost to much money I got a 08 Honda Accord EX-L ,it's good enough for me. Plus you know a Acura is a Honda.

Hmm - trickey question - you don't say over what distance or road style. 0-100km/h (0-60mph) I think the audi when new would have beaten the legend - audi at 7.1 secs and legend at 8.1. But, on a winding track the gap would prpbably be bigger as the legend was a bit of a soft ride with poor suspension setup for cornering. I have been in a 97 Legend on the Honda Tochigi track in Japan and it was like a ship in a heavy swell. However, these cars are now 10 years old, and with probably not similar mileage. It is likely that the Legend will be in better condition than the Audi, so you might hold your own. I once raced a 98 Legend up hill against a BMW 325 same year. Initially the BMW was ahead, but ran out of steam 2/3rds through and I easily outperformed the lighter car. Go Honda!!

The Audi A4 has 200HP and is smaller and lighter than the 215HP Acura Legend, which is a much bigger car.The Audi is faster.

hmmm...this is tricky. I think you can win...i personally would practice shifting through the 1,2, D3 and D4 on your car. This way you can squeeze all of the power that you can out. But you definitely want to go from a stop and shift to redline a few times with practice so that you get the hang of it. From personal experience, the manual shifting of an automatic has worked well when racing my Acura CL, but dont over-do it in normal driving. KICK THAT GUYS ASS!!!
