Well we all know that subaru's awd system isn't the best, but that isn't what you are after when you buy this car. You are after an all around performing mildly fast street car.
I know that we weren't talking about budget, but it needs to be thought about anytime that you compare properties of different cars. Audi's should damn well have a better awd system then a subaru, which they do. Now on the hand of jaguar... that is sad that they can't make a system that outperforms much much cheaper cars.
I would say that Subaru's awd is perfection for the cost... but then again Mitsubishi has a good awd system for the same price.
Audi, I would say, is close to perfection for any price range.
Real perfection would be 2 dollar cars that go mach 1 and room temperature without loosing traction while your but is enjoying itself in a seat of plush leather....
All this talk of transferng power left and right and German AWD systems, it makes me think of one thing:complexity. Think Subaru's are hard to work on, go do a clutch change on an Evo. What does it take to do a clutch on an Audi? The more carp you load into the system the more things have a chance of breaking. With complexity also comes expense. How much does a GTR mission cost? An Audi mission?

A week ago I got my @$$ handed to me by a G37s.... VERY quick and nimble cars. Though this was not off the line but on an open highway at 4:30am
