    The rule of thumb is 3.73's for a4 and 4.10's for m6. They equal out as far as performance for each. Still friendly.

    3.91. 4.11s are too small and break easily. No way could you trans-brake a 4.11 ring-n-pinion.

    I think that independent suspension is a fantastic idea but i don't think it would be worth it.

    did both. the 4.10 gears were real fun to have for sudden acceleration. 4th with converter locked felt like 3rd unlocked. highway sucked rpm wise. 3.73 better overall. i miss the low speed acceleration of the 4.10 though.

    depends on options and transmissions.

    M6 = 3.42
    A4 = 2.73 or 3.23

    I voted 4.10, but I didn't realize you had an A4. Considering that, I say go with 3.73s at the most. Any more gear that that and your engine will be screaming on the highway, and your fuel economy will drop significantly in general.

    As someone else mentioned, general rule is 3.73s for autos and 4.10s for M6s.
