Funny how this car is almost slow for today's standards. At least stock

No for the power it makes and it's weight (being on the heavier side) it's actually still really impressive and remember this is more of a cruising car it's got good midrange just like other cars like it (legacy, galant VR4) and those too are still really well performing cars for how cheap they are

Well rounded road car. Sleeper of some kind. Pretty fast, high reliability, not bad fuel economy. Also it have good TipTronic gearbox operated on steeringwheel. And it is pretty comfortable limusine at last with many available options. Its also good to tune up engine with power.
So its better allround car than many new ones, at very lowe price. Even better than some of new Audi's.

I love seeing people who run gt28 turbos on their s4's and can walk whatever they want in a race (built gt28rs s4's can put out 600 whp. And a 60-130 mph time in the low 6 seconds range!)
