Torque is a wonderful thing.
The 1.8t numbers don't sound all that impressive (180/174), but most people fail to realize that the full torque number is available at 1900 rpm, which translates to a nice kick in the pants.

It's a great car and very fast but u should've take the VR6..
I had my glory days with the 1.8T, but now in the process of getting the VR6 or the R32.
If things going well, i'be driving either one of these cars by summer
