    Not even a powerful v6 for that.

    Its like 250hp i think, which isn't slow for a small car, but with AWD it's not exactly light... and well, its very overrated.

    he said a lotta R32's get totaled in very low speed crashes because of the crammed V6 in the small ass engine bay, and its too expensive to fix

    It's not particularly quick, but it handles great (for a slim piglet), and it's arguably the best sounding V6 on the market...It's horrifically overpriced, but still hold its value like crazy.

    I love them, even though I hate the 4th gen VDubs...There are a bazillion faster, cheaper, cars out there though :hs:
