it's basically the old RS4, without a 8,000 rpm v8. I like it.

the S3 is 40, so it'll probably start at like ~50, but once you start ticking options it'll be even more. maybe worth a lease but i dunno about buying. i feel like its just to get those people who want a 5 cylinder engine but don't want the TT RS. I would consider the RSQ3 though.

The four wheel traction is just icing on the cake for winter climates.
Personally I'd rather have the boosted inline 5 than Cadillac's bland V6 TT. Yeah it's down on power but it's also pulling around 500 fewer lbs.
