Re: What makes a car driveable ?

i think what the original poster is missing is snappy throttle response. 

turbo cars in general will not have throttle response comparable to
that of a 8V GTI or something with the same engine..  the S4 has 
the best throttle response of any turbo car that i have driven but
it will never compare to a good atmospheric.  those are the
tradeoffs of turbocharging.  

the 10V non turbo audis had really heavy flywheels, so that would
take the snap out of the throttle as well...
