got a roof rack smile.gif

A4 with a sport package and a manual. I know I was talking about getting a Golf R but my wife is due any day now and I needed something a little bit more family oriented. On a plus side, my wife is letting me keep the GTI DS_Naughty2.gif I know it's not that exciting but I always really liked the look of the B8 A4. It will probably going to get chipped smile.gif

Nice.

But you forgot to post the thread telling us your budget and desires. Including a list of cars you've already driven and short listed plus others you've had your eye on. Of course we would all comment on other cars to consider giving our own preferences, perhaps a few of us would agree with something on your list. Then you deliberate and go with something completely different or forgo the new acquisition entirely. Then we would berate you for your decision either way. Welcoming you to the internet. It's even better if the scenario is for a friend's car who we've never 'talked' to and know absolutely nothing about other than, "not a car person" or "just wants to get from here to there and likes imported cars".

Well the torque output is significantly higher with the A4's motor than the GTI's, so really not too surprised by that...

Anyway, I got an AWE single outlet exhaust, since they are built to order at their facility in willow grove; I should be getting mine soon.
