The S40 (yes, it's T5, FWD) is TIGHT, man, I've driven it. The accelleration is immediate (vs 2 second delay on my S70). The steering is quick and the brakes grip very nicely. It's problem is bad tires. Can't put the power to the ground. And my dad floors it too much and is a little sloppy. He's in the 90th percentile. But I'm sure he'll improve. He's already planning to upgrade the rims to 18" and get 225 tires for next season. After that I'll convince him to chip it and maybe lower it.

My S70 is waaay too soft. Perhaps next year I'll invest in a suspension upgrade. I did come in the middle of the pack though, which is not bad for a beginner, huh? :) I'll try to imporove, of course.
