    A4 or M6? A4 in gear = 600 or so; M6 = 950 or so.

    thats odd, to me it always seems like M6;s idle lower, my A4 idles at about 900 or 950

    When out of gear the A4 should idle at roughly the same speed as an M6 as the engines are the same.

    500-600 for stock is fine, like you said it runs great if it hesitates, like the rpm goes down and the car wants to die on you-that's an air sensor.
