I use to own a GTI vr6, which at 174hp felt faster than the 328? 328 was auto so maybe that makes a difference in the feel as well. maybe I just expected it to be a bit quicker?
Anyways, I'm not complaining about the loaner, it makes me appreciate the additional work that goes into making the M line.
