      Wife has an 11' 2.0T premium plus.

      Her turbo blew at 51K but we bought it at 45K CPO so I do not know the history of the car before we bought it, although everything checked out originally....

      Grip on a race track isn't an absolute term, you're asking the front wheels to provide lateral, forward/deceleration, when in the end it can only provide "x" amount of traction. It isn't as simple as...

      Styling, interior volime and weight distribution are 3 big reasons.

      AWD cars have packaging challenges that RWD don't have, and RWD almost always have better weight distribution. These are very...

      People love their AWD systems but 99% of the time it isn't doing anything, under most commuting situations. It's all about perception and marketing.

      In the rain, unless you're 100% flooring it...

      Nice, the 034 stuff is great too. I would replace the end links for the sway bars while the car is up in the air. The stock ones are real crap, I should post a picture of what they look like just in...

      My S4 has Audi Drive Select and I really don't like it. The settings are noticeable, but not very useful. Comfort makes the steering feel like a Camry so I would never choose that, it's awful...

      I don't understand selling a car because he lost a race. These are very easily tunable if it matters that much to you that your car is faster than your friends cars.

      A B8 S4 should absolutely...

      I agree but what about supercharging? Solves the sound and response issue.

      Only drawback is they don't get great gas mileage compared to the other options but its an R8 who gives a crap.

      Let's not forget about the Evo, the champ of it's class for the past decade + and smacks around all Suby's that fanboys love to jerk off too all the time.

      Stage 3 S4 is in progress too so that should be exciting. Final numbers are being kept under wraps by APR/Eurocode. Maybe 500 wheel with E85 tuning, or more? Stock DSG can handle it too just fine...

      Yes clearly. I guess that Gray S4 sitting in my driveway is just my imagination.

      Are people really this dumb or just trolling?

      I wouldn't put Subaru in with Honda/Toyota, they are not the cheapest to run cars from what I have seen.

      The older VW's from the early 2000's I would stay away from 100%. But the newer ones are...

      Or a Miata, or an S2000, or countless other cars. The wave is common among many car brands.

      Thing with the S2000 was it was genuinely a rare site to see, and a special car where a modded Subaru is...

      I think the "lack of torque" comments you read about are very over exaggerated. The car is just fine even below 4K. I ran several tests running 0 - 60 shifting below 4 and it was always less than 9...
