well for me get some Eagle F1 tires and its like having AWD lol...I never lose traction or slip...rain or anything...well snow can be tricky but only on tremendous incline going uphill...they cost around 1400 but I got them for about 700...awesome tires can make all the difference

Estimated cost for this conversion, including the supply of a new 6 speed transmission,
rear suspensions and differential assembly......................................$ 14,000-$16,000 US

80hrs of labor :eek:

and why would you do that?
AWD and forced induction. you can tune the 2.0 for less than the 3.2 NA engine...but of course i could always just trade in my fast for the S3 when they bring it into the states.

i also have the mkiv r32 at home (my girl drives it). my fast with the APR tuning is faster than the r32 but she can kill me in the corners and off the line because of the AWD and that wonderful haldex. once you have driven an AWD sports car, it is hard to go back to a FWD. the FWD cars just don't dig in out of the corners and off the line like an AWD does.
