great job

that helped out alot. My buddy's wife bought the older 6 and it was fun to drive. It is nice that forced induction is turning up more in the american market, even if it is an import. Great upgrade.

I have a 03 6s. It is fun, but I want another car.
It has good torque...actually too much. I peel all the time.

I knew about the Speed 6 back in 03 when they were taking about it. But I wasn't going to wait till 06 to get one. The speed looks fun though. Plus you can't beat the AWD.
