What a difference from the A4 2.0 they gave me for my open sky latch fix last time! I'll tell you what though, it was a REALLY rainy day and I really missed the quattro( especially at turnpike speeds) and the few hundred xtra lbs in the rear. I was happy to get mine back but I admit, I kinda miss having a turbo car( ex wrx guy).Funny footnote; a kid pulls up next to me in the last generation Passat 1.8T with an exhaust and a blow off valve revving his engine at me.Green, and the traction control starts flashing and worked well though,there was still substantial wheelspin.It wasn't close as I heard his blowoff valve chirping and he just spun his tires as I pulled off. Once we had traction, he didn't gain at all. Fun wet day with a loaner car! I'm very happy with the xtra money I spent on the Quattro though. Why can't they bring the 2.0 Quattro here? Take care.
