Coming back to LA from SF yesterday on the 152E, I played with a VW R32 (nice blue... reminds me of WR-Blue). There were lots of cars around, so not too much going on, but once it opened up, I was curious to see if it would go WOT. It did (witnessed two sudden puffs of black smoke from each of the exhaust tips), and so did I. I caught up, but then ran out of open road (cars all around again). Did that for about 20 miles. Then the 152E just before the 5S got dense with cars. The VW weaved around the cars and sped off while my wife told me "that's enough", so I stayed behind.
Anyways, I wished we could've done a few ~30 - 110 to see what would happen. But I've got about WHP around what it has at the flywheel (me with VS2), so I guess it wouldn't be fair?
Just wanted to comment... The V32 is a nice looking car with a nice exhaust note (from dual shiny exhaust tips). But I bet my WRX can hold more loafs of Boudin Sourdough and more bags of Golden Gate Fortune cookies.
