Had a nice encounter with a new black Carrera 4 with me in my new black STi.
Was driving home from work when I see him in my rearview. I stabbed the gas a few times to let him know I saw him. We had a few ok runs at some stoplights. Wow, with my still learning how not to nuke the clutch, combined with his lack of turbo lag, it was neck to neck. I then followed behind him (he had the radar) at some moderate speeds. I had to keep shifting short in order to keep from rear ending him! Wow, what a blast. It ended with me pulling up next to him, and both smiling and waving.
Looked up on the net.
Carrera 4 0-60 5.2
STi 0-60 4.8
Damn nice car. Sounded as good as it looked. Might have been different at 100+ mph.
$82,000 vs $32,000..... I like my boxy, uncultured, laggy, 4 door.
