      Thanks George, yea I realize that there is no sport diff for transverse cars. I thought maybe they did something like SAAB did with the 9-3 where they had the Haldex with a eLSD. Top Gear also...

      Thanks for the insight George.

      I'm pretty sure the regular and S models will have the same exact hardware. The main difference if any being software programming. What I'm wondering is if there...

      If that is an RS3 (what else could it be?), then its definitely a 5 cyl in there. Its already been confirmed.

      I'm curious about the upgraded haldex compared to a regular haldex 5, George do you...

      I still think an RS3 sedan is much more likely than a sportback but I wouldn't say its impossible that a RS3 sportback might show up.

      A RS3 in sedan or sportback form is very much a niche product,...

      The Golf R400 is a concept while the RS3 is a real thing. Even if they did produce the R400, I would say we (the US) are much more likely to get the RS3.

      Also, I would take the 5 cyl over the 4...

      Nah, this is the higher capacity wet clutch 7 speed used in the last gen TT RS etc., its not the same as the 7 speed used in the lower output models which you're referring to.

      I'm not justifying it, just stating the trend. Look at all the other RS models, the TT RS is probably the last RS model to come with a manual and that too only in limited quantities for the US. My...

      I feel you but come on, this can't be a surprise especially on a RS model. At least they're giving it the 7 speed and not the same 6 speed found on the S3.

      There are two reasons, I plan on going to an 8 inch wheel which is wider than stock so I would like to take advantage by getting a wider tire. The second reason is a 225/45 tire would mean more than...

      I'm in the same boat. I have VWR springs and the roads around here are absolutely terrible. I don't think the stock springs would have fared much better but I've been questioning the VWR springs...

      Get better tires. If your clutch isn't slipping then chances are the rest of your drivetrain is fine.

      I agree, the only thing I don't like about the car is the taillights. They look outdated already and car won't be here until 2016!

      Have you ever thought that people just enjoy shifting gears themselves and don't care if the DSG is 2/10ths of a second quicker?

      Comparing the S3 to GTR's and Ferrari's is pretty stupid. I can...

      Thanks for your impressions. Can you compare it stock for stock with the mk6 R, or even stage 1 R to stock S3 if you've had prior experience when your R was just stage 1 with nothing else?

      Don't listen to the ignorant people saying that the haldex is not a "real" AWD system and other nonsense. Even STI's with their "real" AWD will understeer at the limit. The R is more than capable...

      Rumor is it is supposed to come with AWD and considering the success of the Focus and Fiesta ST, it might even make it over to the US this time. I'm not really in the market for a new car right now,...

      I think the reasoning behind going down to 2nd then into 1st is because its smoother. If you go straight from neutral to 1st its often quite notchy, the same for reverse as well. If you go from 2nd...

      Same engine as the Golf R400 concept they showed a while ago. Stronger internals and bigger turbo mainly.
