I have an a4 and trying to avoid 3.73s. ill see if summit sells the 342 2 series.

:edit: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/MGR-G875342X/ Looks like those are them. I just HATE my 2xx gears out back, i have a massive dead spot, like at 35-50 mph in my current gears.

In all seriousness, how much mpg did you lose switching. My fear with 3.73s is high way travel; noise and mpg. I plan on running a not so muffled exhaust in the near future and don't wanna shoot my self while on the high way.

I have a DD civic that gets well into the 30s, doesn't mean I wanna go from getting low 20s on the highway to low teens with 373s because I don't have an m6.

Also, any idea what kind of rpms you turn on the high way at say 70?
