    I'm looking for a new car.

    -All Wheel Drive
    -Manual
    -Luxury

    has 300hp
    has 285 ft/lb torque

    :hsd::hsugh:

    Searched all over, and this came up as an option. I'm currently driving an 01 A4 1.8tq avant.

    It's slower than Audi, BMW and Mercedes thats really all OT could ever tell you about that car. Don't get the auto, they are tuned down.

    yeah, the interior blows, but I'd redo the radio console and I feel that it would make it a whole lot better. I'd put an in dash touch screen. They have an option that the screen can come out of the dash, but for some reason it just doesn't look right.

    Hahhaha, I know. I'd get hell if I posted this during the day. But for the price, compared to an A4, this is faster. Stock.

    Understated, maybe. Boring? It can accelerate, handle and stop well. A fucking 1990 Lincoln Towncar is boring, a 300hp sports sedan is not.

    I have a family friend that works at ford's glass house, he was telling me he would be able to snag one for me for about 32k. MSRP is like 38K I think.

    10 to 135mph. It's pretty quick it sounds also pretty nice.

    Interior is odd, but no matter how inspiring, cool or unique an interior is if you drive the car every day in a week it won't feel like anything special. Build quality and layout is the only proper measure of the interior now how "sporty" it is.

    Thats a damn good deal. I've been seeing 2 or 3 year old used cars in that range.

    I was kinda impressed w/ teh V70R that came through work not too long ago, which I believe is essentially the same car, but in wagon form.

    The brakes on the Volvo "R" cars are pretty impressive.
