Why, what do you think is wrong with VW? Product, aftersales service, features,...etc.

Don't you like DSG?

The comment wasn't directed towards you. Yeah, Saabs can be a headache but they love boost and if you have the mechanical experience, which my friend you are talking about is close to his ASE certification, it's not really an issue. He has nothing but a fogged airbox and a TCS switch and he hangs with ///M's. What shitpiles.

of course its an issue, its an issue with the best mechanic out there, it can be done, but its a pain and somethings are a LOT easier to do in other cars.

he hangs with ///M's? what kind of M is that exactly.. or does hanging with M's mean for the first 10 feet?

Well actually a RWD would get a better launch so no not for the first 10 feet smartass. He can hang with a '95 M3 bone stock, I don't see how that's hard to understand... When I say hang I mean he loses by no more than 1 CL in a straight line race.

It's an issue with the best mechanics out there? Oh you mean BMW mechanics ? When you have mechanical experience and get to know your own car it is not much of a problem, generally they dont work on saabs because they are much different, but I wouldn't say much more difficult.
