Volvo Wagon vs. Audi 1.8T

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.

With 300Km on the clock you should keep up. Now if you had 300,000Km now that's something to talk about. LOL

I know you meant 300k on the clock.

300k?

My old Honda was still making decent power at 385,000kms!!! Burning a little oil at that time, but still making 'good' power. Enough to surprise people.

A4 1.8T? No match if it was stock! Still nice to get that feeling that even with all those k's, it's still running well eh?

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

Volvo Ownz, 222 or 240 Hp, either way it kicks ass especially for a 95.

Back in 95 I almost bought one and regretted I didnt. Those wagons are awesome
