      At $45 to 47K fully loaded, this car is very interesting. Anything more than that, it starts losing its appeal imo.

      Knowing VW, they will undoubtedly price it close to $50k if not more.

      I think the throttle response and progressive build of boost (obviously in a forced injection car) is more important than the amount of torque you have.

      As long as you can control it precisely...

      Drool, why can't they just send us the sportback?

      This is a niche product anyway so I don't think making it a sedan will help much.

      Nah, they won't be much more than $40K (at the most) fully loaded if they want to stay competitive.

      I guess we'll see the difference (or lack of) mechanical torque vectoring makes vs brake based when the Focus RS/Golf R comparisons are out.

      The Sportback only has flared front fenders. I don't know why car companies do this, I think it makes the car look a little weird. The C63 AMG has this too.

      It could be functional, the wider...

      Hopefully they make it look a little bit more aggressive than the Sportback. Some rear fender flares will go a long way!

      Who cares what other people think? Drive what makes you happy.

      If you don't want to be known as "the guy with the BMW", then don't speak about it and downplay it when asked about it. Eventually,...

      Come on now, you're comparing a mid engine RWD car to a front engine FWD biased car. The McLaren also has huge ceramic disks, I'm sure weight also played a big role in why McLaren decided to go with...

      It definitely sounds louder and more aggressive than a Golf R. The Golf R sounds more muffled.

      I think the Focus RS sounds as good as any turbo 4 cylinder I've ever heard. I particularly like the...

      Nice, this is great news. The RS3 will be an awesome car and if it comes nicely loaded at under $60k it will be a really good value as well.

      Part of me still wishes for flared rear fenders and...

      OP if you feel that the stock Golf R is not fast enough, all you have to do is go stage 1 and the car will definitely wake up. This is also pretty risk free as far as mods go. Check out what APR's...

      I don't have any official information but I would say that the Golf R400 coming to the US is a long shot. We don't even know if it will be produced at all in the first place. Our best shot at...

      Where did I say that performance wise Haldex is the best? I fully admit that performance wise the mechanical AWD systems with LSD's are better. To what degree is another question.

      The Haldex system is just as good if not better than any other "full time" AWD system out there in the snow. That I can say with complete confidence. If grip is your highest priority, the Haldex is...

      Haldex Difference Between S3 and RS3

      I've heard that there is a difference between the Haldex systems in the S3 and the RS3. The Haldex is the RS3 is supposed to be more "aggressive", whatever that means. Its all just clear as mud!
