Got to start thinking about FI there's diesels out there that make a mockery of the R32
my parents have got an Audi a1 I think it's only got about 100 bhp but in gear grunt is pukka it does nearly 75 mpg and its free road tax aswellL_O_Z I couldn't agree with you more ! Specially about the what I could of brought with the money bit! I struggled too keep with a Audi a1 tdi the other day! Surely those things must be 140bhp tops!
If you counted 100 cars you passed in day to day traffic I bet you there'd be less than 5 that were quicker to 60 than an R32Sorry but a standard R32 is slow and heavy compared to most modern cars. An R32 sounds great but is nothing special when it comes to acceleration or speed these days.
So true! Bhp is just pub bragging rights! Bhp sells a car, torque wins a race! I got made to look a fool once by a gt tdi golf in my old 300bhp vxr!It's the torque output of these new diesels they much more drivable on road anyway very puchy low down torque no need for massive bhp
