Just for shits and Giggles I decided to run my buddy's 2001 1.8T A4. I was in the winter beater (95 volvo turbo wagon with 300km). We line up at the light and the when the light turns green we are dead even. Then as soon as my turbo kicked in I was gone. I was so happy that the Volvo's still got it! Even with 300km on it and original turbo it still can run with the best of them.
Oh yea, power steering is starting to go but just keep topping up the fluid, no biggie. But yea the 1.8T was stock so it was so slow. I guess b/c he had a smaller turbo we were even off the line then I just took off
