Re: more "competittion" for the R. (R_Rated)

that's not competition. that would walk all over an R..... even Boosted's...<p>505hp..... nice.<p>remember when our 300 hp sounded like a lot? Now there are a LOT of cars sporting 400+.<p>

I hope they did more than put wider tires and a bigger engine in it. Otherwise it will be as dissapointing as the regular version.

I like the V's.<br>But those flares are just plain tacky! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: more "competittion" for the R. (kenschel)

I took a look at cadillacforums while back and found tons of complaints about the car, rear differentials blowing left and right and terrible dealer experiences...

Re: more "competittion" for the R. (RUFASTRR)

I don't think I'd mine so much if one of those got me. It's the article I read last night in the grocery store about the new 289 hp Civic Si with turbo that got me a little nervious. Reported times on the 1/4 were in the 13's. Fugumcallit, pre-pimp out rides.

Re: more "competittion" for the R. (KillerB)

I drove a CTS-V when they first came out. Nice car, but the interior had some significant flaws from my vantage point.<p>Not sorry I went with the R <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (Token)

I thought the original CTS was an okay looking car (actually test drove one before I bought the R). Add those flared fenders and it becomes a bad looking car IMO.

Re: (Hi Alt R)

It would definitely appeal to the crude sensibility of a farm-bred digestive truck worshiper. Heck, he may even feel sophisticated driving it. <p>We Volvonites will stick with Thor and the Valkyries:)
