I wonder how well both cars respond to a simple tune.

If the 535d is anything like the 35i petrol, then it will make pretty good power after a tune and bolt-ons.

"Der 3.0 TDI quattro mit 180 kw (245 PS) beschleunigt Ihre A6 Limousine durch das bullige Drehmoment von 500 Nm in 6,1 Sekunden von 0 auf 100 km/h. Noch schneller bringt Sie der 3.0 TDI quattro mit 230 kW (313 PS) von 0 auf 100 km/h: in 5,1 Sekunden. Und auch der 3.0 TDI mit 150 kW (204 PS) beweist: Fahrspaß schließt Effizienz nicht aus. Der A6 verbraucht mit dieser Motorisierung gerade einmal 5,3 l bei einem CO2-Ausstoß von 139 g."

So 3.0 TDI 313 ps 0-100 km/h in 5,1 s
compored to 535d 313 ps 0-100km/h in 5.7 s...
