Chavtastic Enjoy. Good colour.

Evo tested the RS500 against the Subaru Imprezza CS400 (everything the internet chattering classes demanded of the RS - 4WD, 400bhp and Cosworth engine but 50k price tag). Even though the Subaru was ultimately quicker, EVO said "at the most important point of contact between car and driver, the RS500 simply murders the Imprezza Cosworth ... " and gave the RS 5 stars and the Scooby 3.5.

Check out the Eibach spring kit. Little bit lower.

Thanks Dave and interesting article. And will certainly check the Eibachs out as i want to drop it but dont want to go down the coilover route at this stage.

Great vid Marcel - i almost cant believe the video hasnt been speeded up?? Love the way it totally eats the E92 M3 at 2mins 30secs!! Thought he took some unusual lines and entry points into some corners - seems to work though - but he also uses a LOT of the curbs up which could be dangerous if you weren't on top of your game. Great vid though - thanks for that - quite inspiring!!

I know the driver, he is racing in the raeder audi TTS, won in his class in 24h race, in front of the works VW scirocco and others. so he indeed knows how yo drive over there
the run was before suspension tweaking...
