 Oh I agree with all of you..I was just agasp at
Unka's comment on the GE...I LOVE that car..& so does

 But I can't comment on a stock R32, as I noted my
friend has a track worthy example & it is TIGHT! Good
power, ect..other than that I'm a big chassis guy...oh
& he can change the exhaust note from a switch inside
the car! Kinda k00l.
