    I love my iX in the snow but, I don't really like taking it to the mountain. It's fun when it snows in town but, I prefer my CRV when I go to the mountain.

        ^ Lol.

        I prefer the AWD of Subaru because it's straight cut 50/50 power without traction control. I have a pivoting ankle, I don't need some computer to tell me when I should or shouldn't be flooring it.

          As for 4x4, I have never owned a 4x4 vehicle, but I'm sure I would like it a lot. I am actually very interested in buying a Tacoma someday. As much as I loved my Subaru I really want something with more room/towing capacity.

              4wd fails anywhere you have a mix of traction surfaces and non traction. You can't safely drive on surfaces without causing serious stress on the drivetrain. For example, a slushy Seattle day. Not every street is covered in snow but you want traction when you need it. You don't want to always have to pop in and out of 4wd. That and most 4x4s here dont come with locking or even limited slip diffs standard (if even option able) which makes it utterly useless.

              Also, VAGs haldex is controllable. Want to lock it into 50-50? Fine. Lock it into fwd? Be my guest. Their Torsen systems are 50-50 in previous generation A4s and now you can look at 60-40 and even up to 90-10.

              Its not being a fan boy. Its just like having the right tools for the job.

                Anyone know a Ryan Haines or his shop Dynasport in PDX?

                Evidently he's putting a 7-series v12 into a vert. I'd be curious to see a fit like that, gotta be tight.

I have driven a few AWD cars, from 100hp to 600whp. The more modern the AWD the less real it feels to me. I hate traction control with a passion. If you want to not get stuck get a 4x4
                    What 600 AWHP car have you driven?

                      My friends evo 8. License plate was PDXEVO. Car was insanely fast, but he had a kid and traded it in for EVO X then sold that and regrets it ever since.

                      Tryin to find some of his youtube videos. Wow youtube sucks these days. Cannot even search for a certain user. FAIL! Found some pics of his old turbo and intercooler on Google+

                              Just got an insurance quote for my 540/6. $5 cheaper then my E30. Thought that was interesting.
