    +1, I love my subaru don't get me wrong, but after driving in other cars, I have to agree there are much better awd systems out there and subaru just isn't keeping up.

    It's okay. Back in '02, when I first bought my bugeye, I thought it was the end of the world as well.

    Well you can imagine my love for my 08' it's my first WRX, at the age of 30 back in Nov 07' I was finally able to afford one. The car treated me right so far out of 13,306 miles.

    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?

    I think you've hit on something, there.

    That is true, but at the same time if you were looking for something that performs better then that is it.

    I mean we need a little bit of complexity...

    My comments about it not being "perfection" notwithstanding, the AWD in my Subies have never failed me. I don't know that I need anything more.

    Alright I definatly see what your saying there. I love my suby, and I think it is perfection... and as well I have never had problems, but it would be nice to have an even better awd and still not have problems

    You live north of me, so you may have a more pressing need for better AWD. We get very little snow/ice here in NC.

    Thought I would chime in on this a little.

    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
