      The VW d00ds aren't so schooled on variable valve timing or lift (especially lift) since VW until recently had only dinosaur engines like their 2.0 and 2.5. Nor do they know about lightweight...

      there are tons of heavily front biased FWD cars in the race course that does not understeer. It involves a bit amount of chassis tuning, not just throwing in stiffer springs & bigger sway bars.

      In no review does any reviewer mention about the CLA45 AMG understeering. I wonder why the 8P RS3 had understeer built in and whether Audi will make the new RS3 also understeer.

      of course the LED will affect the resale value, meaning you will get more money when you sell it. Just like OEM HID lights commands quite a few hundred dollars in premium in the used market.

      And you know how fast those Toyhondssan companies could introduce a model in similar price range. They got a boat load of JDM cars they could put a Lexfinitcura badge on.
