I'd seen the black v60 Polestar in our village 2-3 times. A village with 2,000 inhabitants, a later 4 cylinder car

Tonight, on the way to the pub with our dog, I heard it accelerating in sport mode. Awful sound, like a 1.2 litre car with boy racer silencer. I'll not be "upgrading".

The sound is definitely not comparable to the 6 cylinder. Then again, that 6 cylinder sound didn't compare to my previous fast wagon which was the M156 6.2L V8. But at least I get over 30 mpg hwy easily lol and it is much better balanced and way more fun to drive.

The Civic Type R's handling is sublime but I just can't convince myself (or my wife) to replace our Elantra Sport because of its looks alone. The sound of the turbo 4 is even more pathetic compared to the B4204T43.

It's all about compromise...
