Hell look at what the 4 cylinder cars are doing now I looked a at Volkswagen Golf R simple tune and dp 400 hp is easy great little sleeper . Ive only seen a handful of the Q models out and all women driving . Id like to see what one has got on the street but will likely never find out .

I knew what you meant about watch out for these new quick cars, man. We are on the same team on this one, lol. I didn't know you called 6g f body. Sall good.
I drive an old *** 302 fox. New pony cars come factory with the same/more power than my modified **** makes. Good and bad at the same time.

Hogwash. You can get the older ones to race sometimes. My wife and I raced another Mustang with an old lady driving, from a dig, kids in the back and everything. This was in our 05 GT, and we were racing a coyote lol. It was just funny as hell more than anything. We won (not by much) because 'ol girl didn't have a good reaction time on that one... At the next light it was all laughs because you really can't take it seriously. Good times. Those Golfs sound like a good daily driver for gas mileage and HP.

Had a friend of mine that sold his GTI after he got a ticket on the autobahn, doing like 160km in a 100... 500+ euro ticket (750ish US). He said he started slowing down when he saw the sign, because he was well over 260 km/h (156 mph) before that. They don't give you a lot of time to slow down sometimes when there's a speed limit on the autobahn.

theres some truth to that I think. I read in a few articles where in the 5th gens the F is still used in the VIN but according to the article from GM, it was only used as in honor of the platform and that was it. I don't know if they still used the letter "F" in the 6th gen vin number sequence at all. anyone able to confirm?

Wow! That Q50 is nasty. Normal looking luxury car that you would not think would be crazy fast. Pretty sick ride and appears that it would bitch slap a bunch of **** around. I'll stay clear of that thing. Don't want to become its bitch.

I didn't know wtf it was either, but apparently a waste of $90k lol. It has a turbo V6 with electric assist. Should have got the E63!
