      There is a 3.0l VR6 twin-scroll turbo planned for the new 3rd row SUV. However shoehorning it into a production Golf/GTI is a little tough with space and cooling from what I've heard. Given the much...

      I don't think it will have the inline-5 turbo. I really wish it did, but I don't think so. The new RS3 is bang on perfect and sounds *so* good.

      Relax... :cool:

      What I meant is that it won't be an exact copy of the concept, but it will be close and will look aggressive. If you want something with big wings, huge scoops and more, there are...

      Yes. Overall this is just a disguised mule. The production car will be more aggressive looking but not quite as over the top as the concept.


      Those are the same brakes that are on the Audi RS3 -...

      I think the most recent models have nice interiors. Both Jaguar and Land Rover still suffer from inconsistency on different bits and pieces though. Some switch gear feels rock solid and other bits...

      At 1.5 million and up per car, I don't really believe that they truly lost money on the Veyron. That is a sh!tload of money to build one car and the R&D costs, while substantial, yielded quite a few...

      Yes. 3rd row SUV. The engine could fit in the Golf Mk7, but it would be very tight/require some "trimming" and heat would be tough to control from what I've been told. Still, the 3.0l VR6T is the V6...

      There plan is to expand quite a bit in the future. Cool idea in an industry so steeped in bad habits and old ways of doing things.
