RWD makes a league of it's own. How I'd hate to go back to FWD no matter how "hot" it would be! 4WD (/AWD - whatever difference that makes ) are of no interest either (although I never tried) - FWD is implied there.

I would be happy even with a M140i in four doors. That way, my half would love it too.
Just bring it in North America for God's sake!!!

Good to know I don't need to come back to BMW anytime soon. Did losing all your designers to Kia really derail things this badly?

Won't that be in essence a fwd car with haldex? (with 2.0 4 pot)

Just more of the same that both Audi/VW and Mercedes are already doing very well...
(so it'll probably also get its ass kicked on track by both the civic type R and the megane RS, for much less money )

Agree and really sad. 6cyl RWD was the unique selling point.
But perhaps this is just the lst generation of petrol driven hot hatches

Agree, this move just put them in the same niche which has plenty to choose from. The RWD behaviour was the thing that set them apart.

If you are okay with the interior and the turbo lag you will love it.

Audi S1 - a serious contender?

Perhaps Audi S1?
