I remember my E46 was just plain crappo in the wet. I think in countries such as the UK, which receives mixed weather, the advantages of 4WD make the cars like RS4 untouchable. Maybe I should just move to Nevada or somewhere :@)

+1 :rocks:

you can only rarly floor the thing as it twitches all over the place in the wet, in the dry it super glued to the road

wonder what roughly an extra 100hp will do
