dubdub is right...
What people haven't realized (and I think VW should make it more clear) is that the haldex system in this car will be MUCH better than the one on the previous r32, or any other previous haldex equipped VW. It distributes torque among the wheels without having to detect a slip (electronically). I believe it is the same system used in the Saab Turbo-X.
Why not have the great fuel economy (and not to mention less hp loss) when cruising, and the advantages of awd in situations that call for it?
I can't understand why that's a bad thing.
Anyways, this car is my dream. A bigger turbo'd GTI with awd and an EVEN better interior. I don't really think people can complain much with it's projected price point either. A stage 1 will easily be at par if not quicker than an STI.
